  • Best way is if you ask to facetime, or them to post a picture on snapchat and they get super fucking offended and defensive or make a ton of excuses. Sometimes you can also search the image and see if it's insanely popular.

    • Also you can ask them things and see if their answer changes, If they are a catfish, they're already lying. They may tell the truth about most things, but if someone is catfishing, they're likely going to forget a few seemingly small details and their entire story may change if it was only discussed once.

Most Helpful Girl

  • - Finding someone's photos online using Google reverse image search
    - Their responses seem odd for the username/person (ex., a teen girl posting explicitly sexual messages all the time).
    - They refuse to Skype or send photos to prove that they are who they say they are.

  • It's pretty simple actually. Just look at how recent his profile pictures were uploaded. Look at the date at which he joined Facebook, also you could try asking his friends on Facebook when they added him cuz if it falls around the the same time as you it could be signs of catfishing.

  • Maybe if you ask them for a personal pic and they can't provide one that matches their profile. That's about it for me. I generally just don't care anyway.

    Just as an FYI, I am not actually Rei of Nanto Suichō Ken. He's just my favorite character from Hokuto no Ken. :-D

  • Ghe reality is unless you see a live video feed of them, anyone can be a cstfish. Although generally they woukd pick someone comforming to the beauty standard of the place they're interacting in.

  • Behavior... If you talk to anyone long enough they slip up on all sorts of shit. Liars are never any good at keeping their story straight, and their mask always slips and exposes their motives. They also tend to avoid any form of contact other than the vehicle they started with.

  • I look at every single detail in their photo, and also the way that they talk and Their Manners. For example, on this dating site there's always a couple of girls that will pop up and their backgrounds will be them in the city somewhere and a very nice apartment or Loft and it claims that live in the Little itty-bitty Country Town that doesn't even have a Walmart. Boom that's how you know that's a fish out of water

    • It's a fake profile, so usually using a picture that's not of them

  • When things that they say just don't add up.
