What/who is a catfish

A catfish is a person faking to be someone else by using someone else’s (in most cases, an unknown model’s photos) and posting them on their own profile, portraying to be them. This usually happens on social media networks and dating sites. Catfishers add life experiences, jobs, friends and photographs to the fake accounts to make them seem more “real”.

Unknowing victims will fall in love with women or men they meet online – with no idea the person behind the screen is someone completely different. Usually, Catfishers are people with low self-esteem that wish to have been different, hence why they pretend they are. But in many cases, unfortunately, they are people who either has something much worse in their agenda or just do it for plain fun and mockery.
