Have You Ever Been a Catfish?

Or been victimized by one? It sounds pretty easy to take on a new identity and hook someone with a picture of a model. Mante Te'o is the latest catch-of-the-day. If you don't get to have actual sex with the person, it's not worth it to me. And I don't believe that football player's story for a second.

It's an anonymous board so spill...

I was goldfished once

I think I've chatted online and on the phone with guys I met online who may have been lying, but I'm sure everyone has had similar online experiences.

The two that come to mind are:

-I posted an ad on rentboy to possibly escort (without sex) and I took it down after a few days, but this one guy said he was incredibly wealthy in NY and lived alone in a mansion with a butler. He wanted me to do some weird stuff and his voice on the phone was creepy so I never met him.

-Another experience just popped in my head. I think I created a profile to sell my used underwear as a way to make easy money and this guy sent me a message. He said he was Dakota Fanning's publicist (this was early 2000's when she was still a child) but that he lived in Minnesota. Looking online, she is from GA so I doubt he was and it just seemed so odd that someone would even think of that as a lie.

Already a recent thread on this:

Years ago on AOL love I joked about being in Jr. High and some creep started chatting me up, really thinking I was a tween. I ran with it for a few minutes till my stomach turned then told him I was in my 30's.
