There are few things more annoying than a bold-faced liar. It takes a lot of gall to look someone in the eye and tell them a lie you know isn’t true. Still, many people unfortunately get away with lying on a daily basis. But the online world sometimes has a way of doling out the necessary justice. These dishonest people were called out on the Internet for the entire world to see.
There’s no way of knowing if they felt shame for being caught or if they continued lying because of their pride. They may be so dishonest they just brushed off the attention they got. A few of them probably even thrived on it. Here are 40 incredible stories of karma getting back at people and putting them in their places via Science Sensei.

The Guinness World Records official account had no problem telling him that his claim was wrong in front of the entire world. Let’s hope he managed to swallow that humble pie for his false claim.
