Munchausen by fake-child-to-win-back-boyfriend

We're guessing this will be the next category we're going to see in the Munchausen family.

A Christmas day story that warms the lonely hearts - a 22 year-old woman makes up a little boy, Riley, but when the MIA daddy who had no idea his "son" existed shows up, she has to make the kid disappear. So he does, with his French, gap-toothed nanny, Camille.

Brianna Lavey keeps it going....

She's now Jessica Morin a SAHM with twins and triplets, all under one. And Samantha Anderson, her 15 year old sister.

There are many more posts from this person on Yahoo, and one can only wonder who would have the time to keep up all these (and many more we don't know about yet, surely) personas.

Multiple personality #7 (or so) on Yahoo

More than anything, if you're the parents of multiples or post your child's pictures on Flickr, please take a look and make sure your child's photos aren't being used on these sites.

We have emailed Yahoo and have received an initial canned response. We'll keep working until they can get this troll blocked from their site. Who knows, with as busy as she's been, it could take down a good percentage of their user base!

Thanks again to BG for the new persona heads up.

Sextuplet Troll

Brianna Lavey and her husband Jesse have twin daughters, and oh my! They're expecting sextuplets any day now as well.

Only, not.

The troll behind Brianna Lavey has set up a complex world of lies and multiple personalities. And in a disgusting move, she stole ultrasound pictures of the Morrison sextuplets, also known as the Morrison 6 of Minnesota. Sadly, five of the Morrison sextuplets did not survive, but that didn't stop this troll from naming each of the ultrasound pictures with her own names.

This troll also stole pictures of beautiful twin girls (in header and on various other parts of the page), Emma and Oni, and claimed they were her twin daughters, Hannah and Bianca.

In a fascinating twist, this troll not only made up her main personality, but also a husband, Jesse, and friends and family members who also have blogs and who commented and "followed" her blog. These personalities all started their blogs on September 11, and posted last on September 12, and include families with a set of twins and quadruplets, who are related to the very fertile Laveys.

"Brianna" is active on Yahoo! Answers with a whopping 72 questions and 243 answers since joining in June.

One alter personality, Brittany LaRosa, joined a month later, and focused her questions on the "Lavey Sextuplets" and naming her singleton baby, which, wouldn't you know it, had four of the options of names as the sextuplets. She also inquired about other sextuplets younger than the Gosselin sextuplets.

This troll managed to contradict herself in her own blog by posting she was expecting seven babies, septuplets, but then two hours later, the number changed to six.

Unlike some trolls, and much like others, this troll appears to have a completely made-up personality. This makes her harder to track down. If you have any personal tidbits that might help, please share them, and hopefully we can out this person for their trolling.

You can find this troll at the following places:

Pictures of several children have been stolen in this process, and while we have identified a few, please help us identify some of the others.

*ETA one more picture that doesn't look like the above children:

Thank you to BG for bringing this to our attention.
