Turns out that Mohammed "Mo" Islam isn't good at making millions. But he is good at making up stories.
The 17-year-old Stuyvesant High School student became an instant sensation after a story in Monday's New York Magazine stated that he made $72 million in stock trading during his cafeteria breaks.
Monday afternoon, Islam reduced the figure, saying that he only made eight figures.
Monday evening, he admitted to The New York Observer to fabricating the entire story.
