    I wanted to raise awareness as this site is rife lol. If the information stopped it happening to one person in the future I'm happy.

    No one dare pull that on ME...:D I have Several Deep Freezers in my cellar waiting for such fodder.. ;)

    You sound like a scorned and slightly bitter woman to me, and you say Lol way too much.

    If you fall victim to 'Cat fishing' then it is You that must take a lot of the blame.

    In this day and age there is plenty in the news about 'On-Line Fakes' etc.

    I would NEVER give genuine personal info out to ANYONE on-line i have never met.

    I'm not afraid to share a personal story though...I't could be true, it could be false.

    The 'physiology' of how people can lie so easily ?.. ( It's nothing new...'Walter Mitty')

    Welcome...Have fun here but be wise.:)

    I can see how Catfishing could occur. Victims are targeted through their vulnerability, perhaps through some kind of loss. The perpetrator will then have enough information to build up a story to lure you in. The reason we make friends with people is through being able to relate to each others experiences. That's how we build relationships and build it on trust. Then it comes to a point where we rely on that someone for comfort.
    I haven't experienced it personally, but i can understand how it could happen. And the worst case scenario is that a person could suffer financial loss due to it. It's all about deception, and people thrive off that.

    You would be surprised what people do when they're in a vulnerable state. They don't think of the consequences and rely on that person for comfort. they begin to trust that person and believe that they are decent and genuine.

    I cant believe the hooded claw got away with comments like above. Threats to woman. I'm thinking this is a bullying tactic. Maybe even a safeguarding. I am also thinking I was quite shocked for a wee bit on my vulnerability, However don't make no mistake, that is not how people would describe me. Talking about vulnerability Do you Mr hooded claw know who your talking to. Oh and on private message to me you mentioned the mask was because of your love of theatre. Emmmmm cultured lol lol lol lol I said I dropped my guard for a wee while. Thanks to reminding me that the world is full of ugly people inside and out.

    Only one thing to say "Though doth Protetest to mucheth lol lol lol
