Also I’m not 100% sure if these have all been proven fact or fiction so someone please enlighten me.
The 2 cases I've looked into in that list so far are Barney and Betty Hill, and the Travis Walton case. While I saw no money trail for the Hill case, I'm convinced money is the motive for the Walton case:

It can't be for the fame, most are ridiculed, stalked or worse. It is certainly not for the money. The few that go to conventions don't make much and risk losing their day jobs.
My paper had offered tens of thousands of dollars to anybody who could positively prove that aliens had visited our planet - in the knowledge that exclusive rights could be worth millions.
When, five days later, the young man we came to call "the kid" stumbled into a small western town, phoned his brother and claimed he had been kidnapped by the crew of an alien spacecraft we were ready.
1. Walton never boarded the UFO. This fact is supported by the six witnesses and the polygraph test results. 
3. When Duane was questioned about his brother's disappearance, he stated that "Travis will be found, that UFO's are friendly." GSW countered, "How do you know Travis will be found?" Duane said "I have a feeling, a strong feeling." GSW asked "If the UFO 'captors' are going to return Travis, will you have a camera to record this great occurrence?" Duane, "No, if I have a camera 'they' will not return."
4. The Walton's mother showed no outward emotion over the 'loss' of Travis. She said that UFO's will not harm her son, he will be returned and that UFO's have been seen by her family many times.
