So, I've been investigating a bit. Turns out that the hoax is true. There never was an Amina Arraf. Besides the confession, it's been confirmed by a video uploaded by the BBC. The girl's name is Jelena Lecic, and she lives in London. She was surprised when she saw her face surfing all over the Internet. She also claims that her friends and loved ones were very worried about her and that she feels endangered. She also says that her pictures being used was a violation of her privacy. Really, just imagine waking up and finding your picture on the news. What a scare, huh?
