    I'd never heard about this before. Also I really hate the term catfishing for some reason but I guess it's here to stay.

    damn that is fucking weird. i'll admit that catfish tv show is a bit of a guilty pleasure, amusing watching how naive people can be, but one person catfishing two people that way to get them to meet up? that's some fucking mischievous scheming right there, impressed really hah.

    it is kindof impressive, though I don't know if the lady who set it up was really skilled or if the targets were just really, really stupid (sounds like they still ended up banging despite tons of warming signs)

    seemed more like an after thought of sorts to just go with the idea of catfishing 2 different people together, she gave em both apparently some conflicting info, then just sort of rolled with the idea of that. But a little more foresight and could be i guess an amusing really circuitous matchmaking thing haha.

    Was interesting to watch for sure. I wonder if any TZT'er has ever been catfished.

    I don't think I'd call it catfishing in the traditional sense but I did have someone I gamed with impersonate being a woman which is weird because we never remotely ventured into online relationship bullshit (if nothing else because I always assume there's a 75% chance of a female gamer being Sumi). despite this he kept up the ruse for a decade and inevitably hijacked my account too

    My buddy just told me yesterday about his friend that spent 20k on some Ukrainian chick (mother's sick, etc), and planned to meet her in Thailand. He bought tickets and hotel, then she disappeared. Me thinks he was catfished. I just don't get it. I have had a handful of encounters with women on the internet. All of them have turned out to be legit. Glad I don't have to worry about that now.

    I remember banging this somewhat hot chick that had been bragging about fucking MLB players. I picked her up by basically telling her she was a whore. Luxberry effect.

    He's not my friend. He's a friend of a friend. Apparently, he had just inherited 150k. So... money well spent?

    About 20 years ago, when I was much more naïve, I met someone in EQ who pretended to be a girl. Sent me pictures, had a whole life story, an entire made up personality that was somewhat based in truth. After several months I had fallen in love and this person said they were too. I was going through a rough divorce from my high school sweetheart at the time, so I was super vulnerable. I tried to take the relationship further by actually having a phone call to talk for real, and when the person wouldn't do it I got suspicious, so I hacked their email. I had their account info because they gave me their EQ password and their email password happened to be the same. Found a bunch of emails between him and his girlfriend. He had used his girlfriends name as his fake personality name lol. Most of my close friends and family know this story, and it's really humiliating actually, but I don't care.

    I'm not sure if it's more embarrassing that you fell for a dude or that you hacked into someone's email account because they wouldn't talk to you on the phone. Although it's probably fortunate that you did.

    I remember Dekkurd getting catfished by Vordai back in the day. I have to wonder about the psychology of catfishers. Is it just a purely sociopathic power move, or is it more about them testing the waters of a different sexual orientation?

    Man that is so cringey yet I have to give props to @Taelen for just throwing that out there too lol. I think that's how you can tell you're really over some stupid shit you did a long time ago when you can just talk about it w/out giving any fucks.

    I've tracked people catfishing down who thought they were impossible to find.

    That's how I started using the internet to back track into information.
