The other day, I was reading responses to a popular post in this group when I noticed a certain poster was lying. I was reading her responses to others, and she stated something personal about herself that I knew to be false. I engaged her in conversation, eventually exposing her lie and (for the first time since I joined CM) called her a fake. The next day, her profile was gone.
I suspect who she is, and I know she will be back under a new name. She just can't help it, I suspect.
When I first joined CM in May 2007, I belonged to a popular debate group and made several friends. Those of you who were involved will remember Lauren. This was a woman who many of us became attached to - smart, pretty, expecting twins..... but she was fake. She stole the photos of another woman to be herself and photo images of another woman's twins to make us believe they were hers. A few women even gave this faker their personal information. Very creepy.
This is just a reminder to all of us to be careful. The 'woman' on the other end may not even be a woman, for one, and it is easy to get relaxed and comfortable and too trusting with someone who poses as a friend.
