This is quite an incredible story of a guy who was stealing other photog's war zone photos and slightly modifying them and passing them off as his own. He gained significant acclaim doing this and he also photoshopped some other dude in some of his photos and fooled people into thinking that was him. BBC investigation exposed him, but didn't uncover his real identity, so seems like he got away with it all.

Here's a further report on this, with more pictures of the surfer dude identity and of some of the pictures he purloined.
