  • A catfish is when someone uses a fake identity online to catch someone cheating usually. For example, if a wife thinks her husband is trying to cheat on her using a dating site, she would make a fake profile and catfish him to prove it. There's an MTV show about it.

  • The urban distionary defines a Catfish
    A catfish is someone who pretends to be someone they're not using Facebook or other social media to create false identities, particularly to pursue deceptive online romances.

  • Someone who is using someone else's picture. Whether it be off a website or the Internet. She probably thinks you have used someone else's picture. Pretending to be someone your not, which yes can be applied to being fake.
