Moroccan Man Jailed For Fake Facebook Profile

According to CNN, 26 year old Fouad Mourtada of Morocco has been arrested for pretending to be the Moroccan king’s younger brother, Prince Moulay Rachid, on Facebook. The specific charge? “Villainous practices” (I like the sound of that).

In a photo caption (copied to right), CNN says the prince has allegedly been the victim of “identity fraud,” which seems like quite a stretch, unless Mourtada was trying to run the government from the fake Facebook site, or somehow ruining the prince’s credit score. I guess the moral of the story is that if you are going to pretend to be royalty to meet girls on Facebook, you should do it from somewhere other than where the royalty being impersonated has legal jurisdiction.
