Hilarious social media posts reveal VERY bad attempts at lying

Most people telling boastful lies would avoid posting on social media to reduce the risk of getting found out… but these people couldn’t help themselves.  

Diply has rounded up a selection of posts from around the world that capture the moment people were caught telling porkies online.

Among the snaps include those who’ve attempted to edit their appearance in a bid to find love online, and another whose own mother called her out when she claimed she grew up in poverty.

Elsewhere, one woman told a friend she was busy working but later posted a status update about enjoying cocktails with her husband.
