Victims of Catfishing Reveal How They Learned They Were Being Lied To

Call Nev!

Catfishing is when you lure someone in on the internet under the guise of being someone else. For example, I message a guy I like in Anatomy 101, but I create a fake profile using someone else’s pictures. I get him to fall for me and think that when I finally reveal myself, he’ll love me anyway. Or I just keep the farce going.

Maybe you’ve seen the hit MTV show Catfish based on the documentary. The maker and star of the movie goes around and helps people who think they might be getting catfished. And they usually are. But some people don’t have Nev’s help and were smart enough to figure it out on their own. These Redditors tell their tales.
