Default Time and resource-wasting attention-seeking hoaxsters on UM

With the Jussie Smollett case in the headlines, I was trying to think of who on UM (aside from the obvious example of the KROQ DJs) falls into this category - or you suspect they fall into this category??

Ed Walters and his Gulf Breeze UFO fiasco, which proved so embarrassing that UM now likes to pretend this segment never even existed.

The woman claiming to have had a past life where her boyfriend drowned & then she killed herself after discovering she was up the duff & then some random guy who watched it contacted them to say he also had a past life as her bf who drowned.

All the dudes that faked amnesia to escape their lives (be it crime, marriage, etc).

Edit: actually the guy who was escaping his marriage did NOT want attention, but he did waste resources...

Those DJs with the fake confession - KROC? Could be off on the station name.

It's "KROQ" but "KROC" would be more appropriate.

Those two are still on the air to this day... still as lame and as unfunny as ever.

Probably Mr. Nobody Questions Passports of Wisconsin from Nyleen's case. There was one guy who gave out a fake confession (I believe it was after the UM case aired), and another before him have given out a fake confession (they'd definitely qualify if that had been on UM).

No. That was real.

What was the love triangle case? Talked about it the other day in a topic.. The one where three people were all pointing fingers at each other over a murder, and it wound up just being a random robbery?

Sammy Wheeler. To be fair, the case needed attention to be solved and it was not a hoax that the three were pointing fingers at each other.

The girl who claimed a bunch of intruders broke in to her house while her mother was out and bound her up - despite her story reaching Smollettesque levels of implausibility and there being no evidence whatsoever of any forced entry.

That case was so annoying-it was obvious she just wanted attention from her mother who wasn't giving it to her at the levels she wanted. The mother pandering to such nonsense rather than just saying look I know you made it up so I would spend more time with you & I am going to change my priorities was all that was needed.

I was 100% convinced that she was telling the truth until I got into a relationship with a girl who would meet the textbook definition of an attention seeker. After breaking up with her I realize how she could have not only pulled off a similar stunt but could actually convince herself it really happened as presented. I believe it is a hoax but I wouldn't be surprised if she had a psychotic break and believes introders actually did the deed.

As for the topic at hand, I would vote for the Comedy Store ghosts. I used to love that episode until I realized how such a story would greatly improve business there and the people in that segment are full of it.
