What do you do when you know someone is being extremely fake on cafemom? Do you report them or call them out in chat? Especially when they're gaining a lot of sympathy and help from other moms and their situation just seems way too out there to be true.

  • If you KNOW it is fake and they are trying to get money donations then YES report them! CM has rules about that

  • Like getting donations? Need more info.

  • I think anything is possible. You said you think they are fake, which means you are not absolutely sure. I would not judge if you know they are getting money, or robbing people then I would report it but if you are not sure. Then really you are assume.

    Just becareful, sometimes we make mistakes. :) Good luck. Happy Friday.... If it is sympathy they are seeking maybe they need it and you should just let that go.

  • If I think someone was fake, I wouldn't post and just continue on my happy way ~ XD I would think most people are trying to be honest.

  • If it's money donations, then I normally report it. That's only if they continually post the same thing over and over.

  • If you know for absolute certainty, if you are 100% sure then report.
