Isn't 65NM offshore "international waters"?
I honestly thought this couldn't be a hoax because the transmission would have to originate offshore, and who, I mean who, would actually BE offshore and initiate a hoax like this? It was a good point brought up by someone else on this thread that it could be someone with a beef with the CG. Prior boarding that didn't go well for them perhaps...
I hope they catch them.
