Blogger Admits NFL Threat a Scam

Brian Ross / ABC, The Blotter | October 19 2006

Federal agents tell ABC News a man in Milwaukee has admitted sending phony NFL terror threats as part of a "writer's duel."

The agents say the Milwaukee man and a second suspect in Texas attempted to "outdo" the other in producing the scariest terror threat.

According to the agents, the Milwaukee man said he used the Internet to find future football games and combined them with Ramadan dates to concoct a believable terror story.

The suspect interviewed in Texas has corroborated the Milwaukee man's story, according to the agents.

Read the statement issued by the FBI and Department of Homeland Security on the hoax.
