– You were in prison for a year until a new DNA analysis proved that you didn’t do the crime.

– Someone set up a totally untrue blog or Facebook page attacking you.

– Your child was injured by a broken piece of park play equipment.

– A newspaper misspelled a criminal’s name, making everyone believe it was you.

– A food that you were particularly fond of later turned out to be really dangerous for your health.

– Your child failed a test because of wrong information a cram school teacher gave them.

– You missed a job interview because the bus you were waiting for never came.
