    Actually just learned of and confirmed a catfish here the other day. Pretty sad.

    I’m a full on catfish 😂

    I knew it! You are wayyy to fine to be real.

    Dang it! I’m busted. You know catfishing is truly awful when there’s a reality show about it.

    I admit, it’s a guilty pleasure. And Nev is :love:

    I love Max <3<3 I watch for the pleasure of seeing him

    Likewise!

    I work at a bank and one of our customers is obviously being catfished. His Facebook page shows he recently "got married" to some super hot chick with a generic name like Sarah Jones who lives out in California. He's been sending money to someone several times a month out of his account. Poor guy won't believe it's not real.

    Is this even proper to share about a customer?

    Obviously I would never share names of a customer or even where I work.

    Why did she share his personal details so anyone would know who he is? Jeez lighten up.

    You/the bank may need to call APS to look into this and check whether he needs help. Sounds like exploitation and he's not connecting the dots.

    It’s a question, not a matter of lightening up. In many lines of work that I’ve been in, this could be a violation of patient privacy, esp. the mentioning of Facebook and such, noting that more than one person may know who this man may be, which could embarrass the patient.

    As long as she doesn’t give personal details I think it’s ok

    Fair enough but what if the customer is on MFP too?

    I think the embarrassment here will be nothing compared to what's coming his way.....

    I was already done after this comment btw.

    I know who you’re talking about OP. I just ignore his requests. Thankfully the messages here are broken.

    Speaking of, whatever happened to the lady who said her husband was cheating on her, and asked if someone here would catfish him for her? I wonder if she ever did it....

    OMG is he the guy with the abs out and a baseball cap and sweatpants! From Utah? He added me. I told him I’m married, he said he was too. Then proceeded to ask me about my best features and size of my boobs!
    I see he’s added lots of girls over the past hour too! I called him out on it and he called me
    Rude

    did you ever tell him your size?

    asking for a friend.

    I can’t remember you’ll have to ask my husband 😏

    It’s definitely him though, he’s using the name burpeez_suuck

    If we have a question about something that happened in the past...someone seems to remember.

    Lol, that’d be him. Those are his favorite questions and “I’m married” is his reason for having to close his account every night and open a new one the next day. 😂

    Yup he asks the same stupid questions over & over. He called me a “Jerk” for calling him out on his BS lol! God I hope none of the ladies on here ever fall for his lies. I’m dying to know what he actually looks like 😂

    I just asked him to change his photo and he did twice to exactly what I asked! So he’s real. Obviously just likes the ladies 🤷‍♀️
