Internet Hoaxes and Pranks

Don't believe everything

Intro

Hoaxes and online pranks can be very funny it you know what is going on, but if you don't, it can be very confusing. It's all harmless until the cops get involved or somebody gets hurt physically or mentally.

The Manti Te'o girlfriend hoax

http://abcnews.go.com/US/timeline-manti-teo-girlfriend-hoax-story/story?id=18268647 Manti Te'o is now an NFL player for the San Diego Chargers but that is not what the 2013 1st round pick from Notre Dame is known for. Te'o was at the center of a hoax about his girlfriend, many say his girl friend didn't exsit and they are right it was later found out that a group of friends had made the fake girl on social media as a joke. Te'o believed it to real but he now admits he was wrong.

These are perfect examples of possible hoaxes
