Many people have got catfished at least once in their lifetime. If you haven’t considered yourself lucky! Even though we live in a society where you can discover the signs easily. People still get catfished anyway. Oh yeah, if you’re not familiar with the term catfish I’ll explain it to you. Basically, catfish means a person hiding behind a fake profile. Usually, the person uses someone else pictures on their social media profile. For example, the person can easily search on google to get pictures of a stranger and post it on the fake profile they created. It’s crazy how easy it is to steal someone pictures on the internet.
Here are the signs…
Excuses to not video chat: Nowadays it’s so easy to get a cheap phone with a camera to video chat. You can even buy a cheap webcam from Amazon or your local electronics store. No one should have a problem with video chatting with someone they are interested in. Remember that tip. Yes, sometimes you may get nervous. Eventually, you would get on camera for video chatting.
Pictures look too Professional: When I say pictures look too professional. It’s those high-quality photos that you can tell when someone went to a photographer to get them done. Regular ordinary people don’t have a pile of pictures like that on their profile. Yes, of course, the iPhone 7, 8, and X have high-quality cameras, but you can still tell it came from a phone and not a digital camera. Usually, models, celebrities, and bloggers plus others post professional pictures. I’m not saying you won’t get lucky and those type of people could message you on social media. Sometimes you should look closely at certain things on a personal profile.
Always “moving”: For some reason, a catfish always say they live in one state. Then a couple of months later they live somewhere else. It’s understandable if the person is in the army and move around from place to place. Catfish people always lie about their location.
As long as the internet is still up and running people will continue to get catfished. Hopefully, the tips you read or listen to in the podcast help you watch out for a catfish. Have you ever had an experience with someone catfishing you? If so, how did you feel about it?
