Details added to embellish or excuse an online scam once someone has started to question the situation.
The term arose from an online scam involving a livejournal user named city_glitter who allegedly attempted to raise money for her credit card debt by claiming her cat had been set on fire and needed emergency surgery. When another user foxfurred her in a live chat, she repeatedly attempted to cover the scam with more lies.
When David's false story about finding a finger in his chili made the news, he attempted to cover his tracks with city glitter.
