Catfish

A “catfish” is a person who creates a false online identity in the hopes of luring people into romantic relationships.

A “catfish” is a term derived from an old fish story. It’s a story about a fisherman stimulating cod to increase the taste and texture. The story explains how fisherman used to have the problem of cod becoming bored and under-stimulated while being “tanked” during the boat-ride from Alaska to China which would cause them to become stale and tasteless. Someone came up with an idea to put catfish in the tanks with the cod. Being a natural predator (we haven’t been able to verify this as we couldn’t find any data supporting the claim and the fact that catfish are fresh water fish), the catfish would chase the cod and keep them moving and agile which, in return would produce a better quality cod.

The term “Catfished” is compared  in contrast to an online relationship where someone lures someone in and “stimulates” them. This is a nice way to put it since most of these online relationships are purely selfish and the catfish usually has a motive for what they’re doing.

Because of the show, the term Catfish is now used describes a recently popular “outed” dating scam

Think before you begin your next online relationship. Look out for these early warning signs that your love interest may not be who they say they are:

Red Flags -Warning Signs of a Catfish Online Dating

With more than 40 million men and women online looking for love, there are bound to be some scam artists out there.The Modeling Profession

If anyone says they are a model, watch out. It means that they are recognized as a very attractive person. If the person you are talking to says they are a model, but also has another amazing career, he or she may be too good to be true. Models are generally very busy and travel a lot. Also, it’s easy enough for a scam artist to access model photos online and post as their own.

Facebook Profiles
If a person’s profile has fewer than 100 friends, and more specifically, if there are photos of the person with other people but the other people aren’t tagged, be cautious. These may be pictures taken off an unsuspecting person’s profile.

Traumatic Injuries and/or Illness
We see car accidents, deaths in the family and cancer a lot in catfish scams. This is very common because the best way to avoid meeting up is by having a traumatic experience.  This is a way of tugging at your heartstrings and making you feel guilty.

No Pictures
If a person can’t immediately send you pictures of themselves in this day and age, then you should proceed with caution. “You’ve got to expect and require them to show you to some degree that this is who they are,” he says.

No Webcam
If a person cannot get to a webcam after repeated requests and attempts, then this is an early potential warning sign that they are trying to avoid you seeing who they really are.
