Today's fake: woman stages daughter's kidnapping

A British woman staged her 9-year-old daughter's kidnapping, going so far as to drug the girl and tie her to a roof beam in order to gain access to £50,000 in reward money. The 33-year-old woman is on trial with a 40-year-old male acquaintance who claims he had acted "under duress" with the girl's mother telling him what to do. The British press is having a field day with the case, calling the man "pervy ex-lover of abducted Shannon Matthews's mum" and "vile."
