There are people who outsmart others with their witty appearance and knowledge and then there are people who take the other way round, by faking stuff and cheating others.
Sporting a subtle smile on the cover of the Time magazine, Mina Chang's inflated resume and other background details initially made her one of the best candidates to become an appointee to US President Donald Trump.
Even though all the information Mina gave out to the interviewers was impressive to say the least, what she did not mention was that the Time magazine cover was completely fake.
During that particular interview, the host had asked her about how she got featured on the magazine cover, to which she replied saying:
We used drone technology in disaster response. I suppose I brought some attention to that.
If these lies weren't enough, the State Department biography for Mina was even more bizarre.
Slowly, her fake cover started getting exposed. Apparently Chang did complete a program in Harvard, but one very different from the institute's prestigious business administration degree.
Interestingly, after the information went viral it was found out that even Donald Trump had his own fake copies of Time magazine on display in at least five of his golf clubs.
After the news broke out, Mina Chang's social media accounts, earlier used for self-promotion, have gone offline. No further comments have been made from the State Department.
