The volume of fraud in the field of UFOlogy is staggering, primarily from those attempting to profit by exploiting interest in UFOs. This list is provided to help you avoid supporting hoaxers and profiteers.
Tyler Glockner, who runs conspiracy site Secure Team 10, said: "We definitely see some anomalous objects, we have this very long cigar-shaped UFO. It's unidentified, we don't know what it is.

Is it just me, or has there been an increase in the number of fake UFO pictures, videos and stories posted on ATS in the last several months? It just seems that a lot of the stuff being posted here on this forum are OBVIOUSLY fake. Many of the posters seem to be newbies to ATS and are either very gullible or LAZY, since they refuse to do any sort of research in determining the legitimacy of their material. I recently read an article that maybe some of you should bookmark for future reference. It discusses and lists known UFO hoaxsters, that are either on the web, or who post FAKE CGI BULLSH$T on YouTube for clickbait. If you're contemplating posting material from these websites or YouTube channels, please be aware that there is a good chance it's FAKE. It would be better to discuss someone's actual UFO sighting, abduction, theory or photo, instead of posting this phony BS. If you're unsure about something being legit, why not spend some time Googling it to see what comes up first?
OK, my rant is finished. I hope no one is offended, but I REALLY thought this should be addressed, because it really does hurt the credibility of ufology.
A lot of it comes from Secure Team 10 and to be honest I didn't know they were hoaxers until I started reading here. Even the drudge report is linking to articles sourcing Secure Team 10 these days.
