Never, ever, ever make a hoax mayday call.  Firstly, it could cost someone their life as the USCG commits a response to the hoax, and takes resources away from a real call.  Secondly, it costs tax payers money.  The last reason not to make a hoax mayday call, they bill you for what they spend, and throw you in prison:
