Help needed with last 2 of a small local monthly quiz/crossword.
One clue has 9 letters in total in its answer, but it can be made up of 9 letters or any combination (1/8, 2/7, 3/6 etc) to make a total of 9. The other consists of 3 letters
Clue 1: Internal con (9) I have P?T?P???S (I wonder if it is Pet Spoofs, or similar).
Clue 2: No clue (3) I have I?? (if it is Spoofs in clue 1, then I would have I?O).

I have not seen a clue like 'No Clue' before. Is this a genuine clue, or does it mean that the setter has submitted the crossword without checking their work?

Rather bemused by the whole thing. Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Cashier. Thank you, and so fast, too. You make it look too easy....
Sorry I don't think I'll be able to help with the other, very strange clue, getting a blank everytime.
2. IDK (I don't know) ??
All I can think of is Ibo
Does the No Clue mean Number of Clue - could it be Two for Clue 2.

Wake up, VE.
Does jobs as the last word in 1 affect your letters?

Ibo is an African language but I'm baffled by the 'no clue' bit.
If. S is wrong. It could be Put up to it

Thanks everyone for all your help and suggestions. I contacted the Rural Trader today, and they realise that the 'compositor' (do they really still have compositors?) hadn't recognised that the note alongside the grid said, 'No clue' meaning that they were still awaiting a clue from the setter...... Oh dearie me. They are going to void the question, so with your assistance I am finished and ready to submit my puzzle.
