Well that has happened to me to someone supposedly in the military but he called a E-9 a “ SGT” however in a pic he had on LTC rank.. They think posing as a active duty Soldiers is a way in... But he didn’t realize he was emailing a Vet. When I called him out on it the emails suddenly stopped(sarcasm) lol

Catfish is a title given to fake profiles. Certain catfish profiles are managed from Africa and are used to financially scam people looking for love by leading them into a virtual love story and then once they are under the spell requesting their help. Once the money is sent, they vanish into the thin air and to the next victim.

 

Other type can be married man looking for adventure etc. that's the light cases.

I am extremely new to all this and some advise someone said is that if you might be interested in someone, ALWAYS do a video chat in the very beginning of talking to someone, so you can at least see who your talking to

Man that sucks. I'm sorry that happened to you. I hope you try again and find someone that will actually be real with you.

A TV Doco aired I believe is helping people to distinguish some of the hallmarks now of the Catfish play. Never once happen to me in all the years I've been online thus far, but it is pretty prevalent based on this below:

 

Jul 7, 2015 - To "catfish" is to "lure someone into a relationship by adopting a fictional online persona." The person doing the deceiving is the catfish. Nev Schulman, the subject of the 2010 documentary, first brought viewers into the world of deceptive online relationships as he attempted to track down an Internet love.

Yes,  be aware of catfish. They are out there. CRLegirl has the right approach just be super careful. What i find abundant is military men stationed abroad, writing long long emails professing love. They are going to retire and want to have someone to come home to. I am suspect if men don't mention a 20 year military career in  there profile.

huh! I was accused of being a catfish once. this guy got super rude and left a comment on one of my photos stating I was a catfish! I told him thanks for the compliment but I am no catfish.

It's a terrible tragedy against the hearts of many, yourself included, for people to be so deceptive. I have yet to know if I've ever been catfished- never let an online man get that close to me. Hopefully you find the right man before you find another catfisher.
