This is a question Lies that got out of control

Ever claimed you could speak a foreign language to impress friends, colleagues and/or get laid? Make a twat of yourself - and I couldn't possibly comment - saying you were the godson of the chairman of BP? Tell us how your porkies have caught up with you

Giving a false statement to the cops and insurance fraud
Back when I was 18 I was still living with my mum so I spent a lot of time hanging out at my friend's flat after school. One friday afternoon I hung out for a few hours, leaving my bag outside on a couch. When I went to leave, it had been stolen. I don't remember exactly what I had in there, but I remember that I lost a decent jacket, a discman and a whole bunch of CDs.

Now here's where the lies begin. Rather than fess up that I was an idiot when I got home, I instead told Mum that I'd been mugged by a couple of dudes. She then insisted on taking me to the cop shop, where I spent about an hour talking to a policeman who wrote down every word of the bullshit I spewed forth. I nearly lost it when he told me that they had surveillance cameras in the area in which I told them I'd been mugged, but, somehow, my lie didn't fall through.

Nothing ever came of it of course, although Mum, seeing an opportunity, told me to say I had a digital camera in there too so she could claim it on the insurance (this was back when they cost at least a grand or so cuz they were fairly new). In a further miracle, we somehow got away with this, even though I didn't have a box or a charger or anything.

I still feel guilty about this sometimes.
