The act of arousing alarm through ominous reports or rumours for one's own personal gain.
Anti Vaxxer: Bill Gates is paying scientists to create a vaccine to depopulate the world.

Sane person: Stop with the anti vax scaremongering.
Get the Scaremongering mug.
(n.) A person who invents threats to themselves and others everywhere. A form of critic looking for a lucky break to be proven right. Typically praises other scaremongers, 1984, hates the government, organised religion and trading systems while freely using the produce of any. Quite narrow minded and insecure, but will attract a lot of sheep.
I have the unfortunate trait of sometimes being a scaremonger.
