Added DiffLines:

* In a ''Series/HomicideHunter'' episode where Joe Kenda is investigating the disappearance of a high school student, her principal mentions that someone called in sick on the girl's behalf, but he suspected the message was fake--the guy claimed to be her father, but sounded like a teenager. He indicated that this was hardly the first time that students had tried to pull a stunt like this (and it probably frequently happens elsewhere).

* In ''VideoGame/MarioPlusRabbidsKingdomBattle'', your helper Beep-O is getting emails from an unknown source as you progress through the game. These then get hacked in world 3, leading to suspicious messages filled with [[EvilLaugh evil laughter]], threats and [[SuspiciouslySpecificDenial promises that said threats were actually harmless]]. Naturally, he and the rest of the party fall for the messages without a second thought.

However, [[spoiler: [[AccidentalTruth that message turns out to be desperately true]]--the village to which they arrive at has been sacked by the Huns, leaving no one alive not even the General among the civilians or the Army.]]

* ''[[Series/{{MASH}} M*A*S*H]]''. Klinger occasionally would forge letters, particularly in mail call episodes, in further attempts to get a discharge; Henry kept many of Klinger's letters on record and uses them against him to point out how ridiculous the claims in the letters are, leading up to one letter that reads, "Half of the family dying, other half pregnant." Potter, on the other hand, dug a little deeper when Klinger tried to pull a similar stunt on him. Incidentally, Klinger has no brothers.
