The imposter "Eduardo Martins"

This was a crazy story I saw last year in Mashable:

A man falsely claimed to be a war photojournalist, and he took other people's pictures and submitted them to a variety of publications.  Even the Wall Street Journal was duped.  The guy went by the name "Eduardo Martins," and he made social media profiles and even a personal website.

I like to imagine that I wouldn't be duped by this type of charade, but who knows...
