After the body of Bigfoot was reportedly found by two Georgia hunters in 2008, the scintillating tale became the rare web hoax that played out in the real world. Based on a widely-circulated photo, which showed what appeared to be the dead carcass of a 500 pound Bigfoot packed into a freezer, the pair of fraudsters called a press conference announcing the find, even attracting the attention of major media outlets like CNN and the BBC. Remarkably, before the world learned it was all a con, a California Bigfoot enthusiast even paid $50,000 to buy the beast's body, not finding out until later that it was merely a costume. Both the fraudsters faced legal action after the bogus Sasquatch sale.
