Oh the media monkeys and their junket junkies will invite you to their plastic pantomime. Throw their invites away.

Times Fooled By Masal Bugduv Prank

Masal Bugduv was a Moldovan maestro, and the next big footballing thing from Eastern Europe.  Arsenal and Liverpool were fighting for the sixteen year-old striker’s signature.  He was #30 on the Times’ Top 50 young players list.  The youngster had optimistic prospects.  There was only one problem.  He doesn’t exist.

A series of blog posts and fake AP wires created Bugduv.  Someone sloppy in the mainstream media ran with him. 

Bugduv’s Wikipedia page seemingly confirmed his existence, cheekily created by a user, masalbugduv.
