Los Angeles, CA -- (ReleaseWire) -- 07/14/2014 -- A news story that was released, claiming that “Samsung Pays Apple $1 Billion Sending 30 Trucks Full of 5 Cent Coins” was announced as a fake news story, by the website “This was one of our favorite stories that we did for the website. Everyone follows Apple in the news and is always seeking out new information about the company’s newest product announcements, so any time they are in the news it draws attention. We created such a ridiculous story and the public ate it up faster than the new iPhone 6 will sell out,” explains a representative from the fake news site.

Several online news sites were quick to report on this news without even checking to see if it was authentic, causing the news to go viral very fast.
