#datingscams | How To Find Out If Someone Is A Catfish


Is your perfect match just a scam?

By Ashley Oken

The advent of the hit MTV show, Catfish, in 2010 made the term “catfishing” widely known. The act is to lure someone into a relationship by means of a fictional online persona.

Social media platforms make connecting with others at great distances possible, and it can lead to many things: great friendship and a meet-cute love story, or scams and fraud.

Like the geographical proximity that aided your grandma and parents in building their relationships, exchanging emails, pictures, and messages help glue online loves together.

If you’ve watched as many episodes of Catfish as I have, you’d consider yourself an expert or amateur detective.

But there are signs that all of us can miss when love is in the air.
