Celebrity hacker or hoax

Celebrities and cyber experts are trying to sort out what is either a massive hacking scandal or giant hoax.

A hackers group based out of Russia claimed to have the social security numbers and credit card numbers of more than a dozen celebrities and high profile US citizens.  Among them, the First Lady, the Vice President, Beyonce and JZ.

But phone calls to numbers on the website, did not pan out suggesting at least part of it may be a hoax.

The site shows more than 100,000 views since Monday.

Now investigators are hoping they can hunt down and shut down those behind it.
