SAN FRANCISCO (KGO) -- An elaborate prank was played on PG&E Wednesday when a fake website was created and a phony press release was published.

A press release on the website says former President and Chief Operating Officer Geisha Williams was donating $2.5 million to Camp Fire victims.

That number actually belongs to PG&E.
