Want to Send Us a Possible Hoax?

First of all, please follow us on our public Facebook page

We love looking at pages people send us when they suspect something fishy is at play. Just keep the following in mind.

  1. Please either Facebook message or email us at warriorelihoax@gmail.com. Don’t mention your suspicions on this page or in the comments of our blog. We don’t like people to be tipped off about which pages we’re currently researching.
  2. We have a bit of a backlog right now, so please be patient while waiting a response.
  3.  We research these things for longer than you’d think. Before we post anything, we want to make sure it’s something we can prove 100%. We don’t post rumors or suspicions on our blog, and we don’t like to post before we have figured out the person behind the suspicious blog.
  4. It’s hard for us to look at the veracity of a person on Facebook if they don’t have a blog or a Facebook prayer page. Sometimes we can look at support group posts and things like that, but our job goes a lot more smoothly if there is a blog involved.
  5. Finally, if a family has a legitimately sick child but seems to ask for handouts at every turn, there’s not much we can do. This blog was created to expose people faking illnesses, not to monitor which sick kid gets too many gifts. We can verify if a child is really ill, but I’m certainly not going to write a blog post saying that a certain sick child is asking for too much. 
We’d also be happy to answer any questions you might have. Thanks!

The San Roman Sham

Kevin and Lucas San Roman were two spectacularly handsome brothers who lived in Spain.  Although Lucas was suffering from cancer, both brothers managed to friend and have online relationships with several teenage girls in the Miami area.  Lucas tragically died and his Facebook friends worked to comfort his brother Kevin.

Of course it turns out that the San Roman brothers were a figment of someone’s imagination.  Check out this great Miami Herald article by David Ovalle to see who was behind this story.  Hint: the real “San Roman brother” followed around his teenage Facebook friends in real life.  Creepy creepy.

David Ovalle also started a blog to share further details about the San Roman Sham.  It’s worth a read, particularly for the details of how this person followed and stalked these teenagers.
