Real or Fake - Flying Spider Invasion!
Back around 2012 there was reports going around about the discovery by scientist of a new and very dangerous type of spider. It was dubbed Flying Spider or Winged Spider but scientifically called Volat-Araneus. According to the "experts" this dangerous spider would soon be invading the UK and the rest of the world. The thought of this struck fear in the hearts of arachnophobes everywhere and the Newspaper clipping sure looked convincing, but lets dig deeper.

Now the mysterious Flying Spider has re-appeared in 2014 and it comes from a tech repair service called Digital Plumbing. The main question:  "is it Real or Fake?"

Do you have a fear of spiders? I really don't like them myself, they are just creepy to me. Now, I will admit the thoughts of flying spiders is something I really don't like to think about.

But everyone can rest easy when it comes to this report of flying spiders, the story is a fake.
The image of the winged spider has been digitally modified and inserted into a newspaper picture.

Oh how can I be sure you ask? well here is the original photo of the winged spider:

Notice this is the exact same picture used in the fake newspaper article, well minus the wings.
The original photo was first posted on the Carolina Nature Webpage, which is a site with a lot of spider photos, avoid it if you are like me and find spiders creepy. The credit for the photo was to a Will Cook, he must be a brave man to get this close to a creepy spider of any kind. yuck.

Now, in the 2014 version of the "flying spider" post from Digital Plumbing they admit it is a fake and are using it to educate internet users that you can get viruses and malware from clicking on these fake news reports.
