So many hoaxes, so little time! What is it with people thinking they’ll get away with this stuff? Is it a sense of entitlement, like they must be believed no matter (or how far-fetched) the situation?

A candidate in a crowded South Carolina mayoral race is accused of orchestrating an elaborate ruse for sympathy votes using a fake kidnapping and Facebook Live.

Sabrina Belcher, 29, was arrested and charged with conspiracy and filing a false police report after Sumter police say she filmed herself being kidnapped, beaten and robbed on Facebook earlier this week.
