    I have no idea what I would do if this happened to me. How can someone fool this many people to believe on a matter such as this?

    "ALBUQUERQUE — Steve Barreras’ attorney said he had never seen anything like it.

    After Barreras was hauled into court, peppered with threats and demands for money for a child he adamantly denied fathering five years ago and even paid out $20,000 to support, his ex-wife was under a judge’s order to produce the child.

    So last week, Viola Trevino picked up a 2-year-old girl and her grandmother off the street, promised them a trip to see Santa Claus and $50 and took the girl to court, alleging it was her daughter.

    The elaborate ruse stretched over five years and involved fake DNA evidence, a forged Social Security number and birth and baptismal certificates, court records show.

    Last week, state District Judge Linda Vanzi ruled the child did not exist........"

    what's worse... the woman who scammed the money or the grandmother who let the little girl go to court to pose as the daughter?
