Never trust a scammer.

Drake and Rihanna fans' hopes were WAAAAAAY up yesterday when a mysterious website, drakeandrihanna.com, started running a countdown clock for a collaboration between pop music's Ross and Rachel.

Joanne the Scammer finally dashed those hopes, as she revealed herself to be the mastermind of an elaborate scam.

Joanne, aka Branden Miller, aka the Internet's favorite con artist, told TMZ that after scamming her way into the VMAs, she was "bumrushed by security" when she tried to take a selfie with Drake. She made the site as an act of revenge.

We repeat, n e v e r trust a scammer. (Or deny them a selfie).
