Fake internet dating

If they refuse, or make some excuse, that is a red flag.

In fact, people lying on online dating sites has become so prevalent that a popular documentary film and television show coined a term for it--being "catfished." The good news is that you can protect yourself by learning how to spot a phony while dating online.

I go in-depth on the topic in my book , but for now, let's take a look at seven indications that someone that you are talking with might be catfishing you and use them to help catch the catfisher. If a person won't video chat or carry on a telephonic conversation.

He was able to portray himself as the perfect catch for each of the women he scammed.

The Whitter case illustrates the issue: When you are dating online, you have to be aware that the person that you are communicating with might not be who they say they are.

You can also find legal documents like bankruptcy filings, divorce records and sometimes marriage licenses. When people are communicating online, they will frequently send each other photos in real time.

Some cities and states even post traffic tickets online. During a conversation, ask to see a photo of the person right then.

We don't know the substance of the online communication between Te'o and "Kekua," but most likely she was not able to send real time, on demand photos because they didn't exist. Do they have regular banter with other people on their sites and appear to have "real" friends and work colleagues?
