My sister is a "Catfish" Small update in OP

I found out the other night that my sister is a "Catfish".

I get this friend request on FB from a person who my sister is supposedly engaged to. I looked on the page and it looks very suspicious and just screams that it's something my sister created (because of some spelling and the pictures and I just felt it...if that makes sense).

So, I was scrolling and found one of her friends comment on a status and said, "is this a real person or is it you?" (to my sister). My sister's reply was "I'm here."

So I sent the friend a message and asked if my sister told her if the profile was real or if it was her. The friend says that she never said for sure but she really thinks that it's my sister and not this guy. And then she tells me that my sister made a fake profile about 4 years ago when she was pregnant with her middle child and told the friend that she was pregnant with her husband's baby. She was not pregnant with her friend's baby and there were no suspicions from anyone about that. She was just trying to start junk. I was like 0_o.

Anyone else know any Catfish?? What's the craziest thing you've seen done???

*** Update: My mom confirmed it... the profile of my sister's fiance is my sister. My sister is engaged to herself! ;)

LOL ok, I thought that show was popular enough that Catfish was a common term. It's when someone makes a fake profile and lies about who they are pretending to be someone else. I think usually they get romantically involved with one person in particular, but really I think this is the same thing.

A catfish is someone who pretends to be someone they're not using Facebook or other social media to create false identities, particularly to pursue deceptive online romances.

Why would she be engaged to someone you never met anyway. Weird
