Often the scammers use images of attractive women they have found on the Internet to fool their targets to satisfy their twisted desires for control.

I work for a repo company and I have a fake Facebook set up to lure people who have been hiding their cars from us out on dates. We make plans to meet up, and then when they arrive to meet up, I repo their cars. Hahaha. ¯\_ (ツ)_/¯
I met someone on Twitter unintentionally, and we started chatting via text daily. Next thing I know, we were speaking every day all day. He started to admit feelings for me so I tried to plan for us to meet. He would lead me to believe he was coming and then bail last minute. There was always an excuse. This went on for months. Then he started telling me he was diagnosed with cancer and began to undergo treatment. I started getting suspicious and asking questions and always got very weird answers. I knew I was being lied to. I got really mad and decided to drive out to his town. When "he" found out I was there looking for him, he admitted that HE was actually a SHE.
In a classic case of filmmakers prioritizing their own pitch over the actual goods, Ariel Schulman and Henry Joost put Schulman's toothy-grinned brother Nev front and center as he investigates his fishy long-distance Facebook crush.
Turn on MTV, do some online tumbling or check your Netflix documentary queue. The epidemic is inescapable and at the center of it is none other than Nev Schulman.
I got to know Ken on every level — he told me he had a kid and that he was an accountant and that he was born and raised in Chicago. We hadn't spoken on the phone yet, all we ever did was text. I told my girl to call him on three-way and she's like, "Rachel he can't talk." I was shocked. She told me he was born without vocal chords. I was confused, but didn't stop talking to him. We even ended up having phone sex! How does one have phone sex without another voice on the opposite end of the phone? You text back your "oohs" and "ahhs."
Afterwards, I found the real girl who the pictures were actually of. One of my friends actually knew her too, ironically. She thought the whole thing was crazy but wanted to meet me anyway so I took her on a few dates. Win.
When I was in high school I got catfished by one of my best friends. I got a new phone and had to get all my numbers back. When I was checking to see who was who I got a random text from a number I didn't know. The number told me his name was Blake and he went to a different school. He told me he knew a girl from my school who happened to be one of my friends. She then verified him for me and told me she used to go to school with him. She said he was really nice.
At the end of the documentary Schulman discovers Megan was a fake account run by Angela using a family friend x77 s photos.
