Police began to investigate Susan Morris Stillwaggon after an anonymous phone call from Susan's son's school voiced their suspicions.
Here's what police said:

We've all been there.
You don't do as well on a big test, or a big project, or a big entire semester.
And you're scared of how your parents will react, so to buy yourself a few more hours, you fake your own kidnapping.
Well, we haven't all been there, but one young boy in Spain was last week!

Hate to say it, but sounds about right.
Teen Mom's Amber Portwood was evicted from her Indiana home last month after it was discovered that she was scamming the government.
Amber was enrolled in the state's "Low Income Rental Housing Tax Credit Program," which means she would get subsidized housing since she claimed she made about $10,000 a year.
Because of the big bucks Amber gets from MTV, it turns out, the government got a whiff of what she was doing and evicted her - while she's still behind bars for violating probation, no less.
Here's the stomach-turning part: Amber made $280,000 from MTV in 2010.
It's unreal that she gets paid that much to whine about her life, hit her boyfriend in front of her child, and then whines about it again to her friends who seem like they hate her anyway.
What is this world we live in where Amber Portwood gets paid more than 5 times as much as teachers do?!?
