N.J. Teen Caused International Incident in Bulgaria

The idea of a joke by a teenager from Bergen County hasn’t done any wonders for New Jersey’s international relations.

Eighteen-year old Andriy Mykhaylivskyy of Rutherford created a fictional female online personality, and then reported her kidnapping to a U.S. Embassy in Eastern Europe.

CNN reports that Mykhaylivskyy is being accused of initiating a year-long relationship online between a fake profile named Kate Brianna Fulton and a male high school classmates. Mykhaylivskyy reported to the Embassy in July that Fulton had been kidnapped and was being held for a ransom of $50,000 in Bulgaria.

NorthJersey.com reported that according to Mykhaylivskyy’s classmate, the online relationship started in August 2012, and the relationship continued online and through texting. Meanwhile, the classmate met Mykhaylivsky, who confirmed that Kate was real through stories.
