have you ever caught one?

I'm watching the show and it made me wonder has anyone here ever caught someone not really being honest about who they are online?

If you were close to them like in Nev's situation, could you forgive them and move forward and get to know the real them or not?

I got caught up with a guy I met on MySpace. I suspect now it was either a female or a young teenage kid. It was just like the show. We talked on the phone all the time but he was full of excuses every single time we were supposed to meet. Car wrecks, illnesses, deaths in the family, etc. It's so obvious to me now but it's amazing what a person can really fall for. I was very lonely and unhappy at the time.

No, but when I was younger and talked to online people I would usually ask to webcam so you actually see them.

I flew out to Arizona to meet a man I'd been talking to for about a year. The guy had been showing me very old pictures. He was fat and bald with a hunhback. I tried to give him a chance but he was very controlling and tried to buy my love. He literally stalked me for years after I told him I didnt want to see him again. It was scary.

Nope. I can't say I've ever been in that position. I've met two friends online and I was fortunate enough that they were who they said.
If I were ever in Nevs situation I don't know if I could be as forgiving as he was.

I used to own a chatroom on a chat site and we have caught a few catfish...one was a woman who everyone just fell in love with, all the women adored her and the men fell head over heels in love.  She started a couple "online" relationships with a couple of the guys and when she backed out of meeting them/going on cam etc......one of the guys actually hired someone to track her down.

It turns outs she was a 56 yr old woman pretending to be her own daughter who was 23!!!!!  The guy got in contact with the daughter and found out that her mother had been doing this for years on various chat sites.  It was a sad situation...a lot of people got hurt

I haven't been in that situation. Everyone I've ever met online was the person I had been talking to. But I enjoy the show. :)
