“CATFISHISM” Appears To Be A Thing Now! Who Knew?

There appears to be a growing number of men involved in “catfishism,” a fetish centered around getting scammed on the internet.

These men willingly hand over their money (as much as hundreds of dollars at a time) to fake impersonator scammers who present themselves as beautiful women on social media, but say upfront their pictures are fake. In reality, they could be anyone—and that’s part of the appeal.

Catfish fetishism is a more recent development. I spoke with eight catfish and catfish admirers for this story, almost all of whom declined to provide their real names. (They will be referred to using pseudonyms, and screenshots of catfish accounts have had women’s faces and identifying information removed.) Of them, none recalled hearing of “catfishism” before December of last year. Most only learned of it in recent weeks, but the community, which primarily operates on Twitter, is growing fast.

We are seeing a similar behavior in some women also. Women to pay scammers for the attention – a kind of denial but one that comes with an awareness that it is a scam.

We are not totally sure about this new phenomena, but as this story is spread it will have a significantly negative impact on real victims. As awareness of this grows it cannot help but paint all romance scam victims with a negative light and reduce what empathy there is with law enforcement.

FAQ: How Do You Properly Report Scammers?

It is essential that law enforcement knows about scams & scammers, even though there is nothing (in most cases) that they can do.

Always report scams involving money lost or where you received money to:

  1. Local Police – ask them to take an “informational” police report – say you need it for your insurance
  2. Your National Police or FBI « www.IC3.gov »
  3. The SCARS|CDN™ Cybercriminal Data Network – Worldwide Reporting Network « HERE » or on « www.Anyscam.com »

This helps your government understand the problem, and allows law enforcement to add scammers on watch lists worldwide.
