Why would someone do that? It sounds too risky and what even is the point? What exactly does it accomplish?

too risky? most people who get caught falsely accusing someone are sentenced to community service or a fine.
what is the benefit? you absolutely destroy someone's life. Family disowns them, friends abandon them, neighbors demand they leave the neighborhood, work fires them, spouses leave and take the kids...
Even when it is proven that he did nothing (in some cases, that he never even met the person who accused him) most these things will still happen to him, because nothing poisons a persons reputation, and makes them a social pariah, like the mere accusation of a terrible sex crime. Everyone can know it is false, and still want nothing to do with him.
Some men have their lives so destroyed that even after being proven innocent, they are driven to suicide, because they are treated with such hatred.4
