From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Andrew Carlssin is a fictional person from a news story hoax. A story on Yahoo! reported that a man named Andrew Carlssin had been arrested for SEC violations for making 126 high-risk stock trades and being successful on every one.

It was said that he started with an initial investment of $800 and made a fortune of over $350,000,000.

He claimed to be a time traveler from the year 2256. Upon making bail, he had promptly disappeared.

The news article was originally published 25 February 2003 in the Weekly World News and later was reprinted on Yahoo! News's Entertainment and Gossip section.

The story was also included in the book Pedestrian safety expert gets hit by bus by Huw Davies and Another Weird Year 2004.[1]
