    It all started almost 2 months ago when I received a message from this soldier over in Africa. He sent me a few photos and we started talking on whats app. After telling me that his father died when he was little and his mother died in a car accident and his wife died of cancer I told my sister about him. She was suspicious from the get go. After a while, he said he was going to send me some money so that I can hold it for him when he comes to meet me in Chicago. I gave him my account number so that he can deposit his checks. When I told my sister what happened she went ballistic and had me close my bank account and tell the bank not to cash those checks. My sister called credit bureau and put a hold on my credit. It was a big mess. He denies claims made by my sister that he is catfishing me and I still talk to him on a daily basis. I think my sister is wrong, but this is where you come in. I want to prove to my sister that she is wrong. Please help.

  10. Jeff J

    Hey Nev and Max I;m jeff, I’m 25 years old from Mentor,Ohio. Im a gamer and streamer on To make this long story shorter. A girl met me on twitch. She added me on snapchat where we started talking. Now I dont usually talk to viewers like this or really look for relationships or anything close to it online. We we kept talking. We had so much in common, everything almost! She was soo beautiful,enjoyed gaming,liked the same films as me,music,hobbies, it seemed like the girl of my dreams! She lives in Houston Texas, so quite a bit aways. We talked for about 5 weeks everyday,almost all day, about almost everything. I was fully committed after these 5 weeks and felt like I was so lucky to of met someone this amazing, that was into me as much as I was into her. This was a dream! She was even coming to see me. She was going to fly from texas to ohio to spend time with me! I literally could not believe it. BUT
    The 1 issue I had was that we never actually talked,or video chatted. She sent me pictures,old videos, but never anything recent. My first red flag was that she sent me a picture stating it was from that day. However I found the SAME picture on her Facebook edited from years ago. When i mentioned this she immediately got defensive and blocked me for a short while. Being into her as much as i was i thought okay maybe se is just insecure and very shy. But why would she be coming to see someone she never met states away? but cannot send me a 4 second present video? This isnt right.
    Well Today I actually found out from digging deep into her facebook profile and messaging someone else I saw from commenting on one of her videos, EVERY PICTURE i ever received was taken off of a Instagram account with 18k followers! She is a fake. The girl i have been talking to,or guy who knows, Is not the women shes been showing me. I want to know who I have been talking to,watching movies with,talking about life with. Shes a fake and I need to know who this person is, why she did this to me, so this doesnt happen again

So now the issue is, we want to get married; But! She’s over there and I’m over here and her Christian family have doubts about me not being in the same religion. Can you please help Reunite us once again?

    Thank you!

  12. Kevin M Remmel

    Hi Guys. Im Kevin. 46 living in Albuquerque, NM. I have been talking to a gal in Bangkok, Thailand. Have sent her around $2k to get a phone, id, and passport. Still doesnt have any of it. Phone has to be configured she says for international calling. That was 2 wks. Ago. Now she had a motorbike accident and damaged the phone but is going to get it replace. I added international calling to my phone plan. It only took 30 secs to configure. Why didnt i realize it then. Also prices she quoted are 10xs higher than what they actually are. I was stupid enough to even send money without researching 1st. I would love to hear from you both. Hope u will consider me for a casting. It would be interesting to do a show in Thailand. I can be reached via email or

  15. Lanay

    Hey Nev and Max, I have a friend who’s been talking to/dating this guy since we were eleven years old! It all began when we were in fifth grade, and she met him through a teenage dating website. It’s been so long I can’t even remember what the name of it is lol! She catfished him first though -_- She used the name “Skylar” and pretended to be her for a couple months. His name is “Hunter” and “he” lives in Sebring, Florida. He talked about coming to Michigan to meet her, so she came clean and said her real name. (Not putting her real name) She said her name was Vanessa and he was okay with that because he was lying to her too! “He” said his name was “Levi” and that everything else he told her was true. They video chatted, and talked on the phone but when I heard “him” for the first time I knew something was up. I told her my concerns, but she quickly shot them down with “it’s just how “he” sounds, and “he” hasn’t hit puberty yet!” “He” was about thirteen or fourteen at the time. (Now we’re 18, and they are 20-21) The “Relationship” went on for about another two years, both constantly talking about seeing each other, but no one really going. “He” would talk about coming to Michigan, but when it was time to be here “he” said something came up with his mom they fought about “him” driving up here alone, and she hit “him” and kicked “him” out. When it was time for her to go down there she would say she had the tickets, but then couldn’t go because of sports. (“He” played sports too) They dated for another year, and this time Vanessa was very adamant about meeting “Levi” plans were made for “Levi” to come up to Michigan, but he had another surprise for Vanessa! “His” name was “Kolten!” They argued a lot! She was tired of the lying, and told “Him” that he had to be honest with her, and tell her what “His” name really is. “He” said it was “Kolten” and that “He” was sorry for lying to her for so long. Fast forward another long year and a half. After numerous video chats, texts, fights, and pictures were exchanged “He” came out again and said “His” name was actually “Beau” Vanessa was mad at “Beau” for about two, three months and they didn’t talk, but were still “Dating” fast forward to now, well a little before sixteen, seventeen. Vanessa could drive, and talked about going to Florida for a family vacation, and one stop was going to “His” a couple days before the family vacation happened Vanessa’s parents fought, and the vacation was off, “Beau’s” mom too was sick, and didn’t want Vanessa coming over. “Beau” finally came out as a girl, and her name is Kara Faircloth she goes to Pasco-Hernando State College and she plays softball there! Vanessa told her she could have been honest with her, and that she would have still loved her no matter what the circumstances were. Now we’re 18, and Vanessa has been talking about going down there to see her, Kara has a girlfriend now that lives here in Michigan and she occasionally comes here to see here. I want Vanessa to finally meet Kara and see who’s been this person all along! I could really use your help!

  17. Carol Hartmann

    Dear Nev and Matt,
    I am writing you because I really need your help. I am a 70 year old lady who when I turned 68 decided to not give up on finding Love. I joined in February of 2017. I was Found by a man who claims to be 57 years old and has a son who is 16. His profile said that he was a widower who had lost his wife five years prior. He wanted to connect off of the Match site right away after a couple days. I did not know anything about catfishing or romance scams, and he was suddenly within a week told me he was taking a contract for an oil rig job outside of Moscow Russia… he said it would last six weeks.
    I was very attracted to him and this is probably the strangest situation you may have heard of. He claimed to have mislaid his backpack in Moscow a couple of weeks after arrival and lost $450,000 in cash, his passport, his credit card, his US Id…and money. His name he said is James Huckaby. I, being very vulnerable, living alone and without love in my life, I fell hard for him… via emails, texting and he asked me to buy him ITunes cards so he would have “call time”.. and I could call him at no charge, but he said he could not call me.. He claims to have been born in the USA and his family moved to England when he was 3.. He said he grew up in a suburb of London, and then moved to Manchester. It has been 14 months now and he has taken $50,000 of my money for ” ASSISTANCE” with his work in Russia, telling me he is in love with me, wants to spend the rest of his life with me but he has to finish this oil drilling and well and he needs money for equipment that he has to make up on his own as the owners will not provide it…he said he is not allowed to leave until the project is finished or he would be arrested, or sued, etc. and now he is in the compound not allowed to leave unless it is to get equipment and I know that there is something definitely wrong… Please can you help me.. I tried several times to end this “relationship” as he will not stop telling me that I am his only hope and that he cannot come home with nothing from suffering for over a year there. I have not sent him money since last year,,, and have just sent cards for him to be able to call me… but this is making me very sick.
    Please will you help me… I offered last year to buy him an iphone so he could facetime or Skype, and he refused saying that cameras are not allowed on the rig. I have pictures but have never seen his face, nor met him. I am scared and I do not know who this is, and do not want to be hurt… thankyou.

  20. Elena

    Hey Neve and Max, I’m trying to figure out how to contact you guys, I hope this is the way. My friend Dawn and I are in desperate need of your help. We have a mutual friend who is head over heels with this guy who is supposed to be in the military FIRST RED FLAG. He has several Facebook pages, SECOND RED FLAG. He has several different names, THIRD RED FLAG. There are many fake military pages out there to get the attention of many lonely women out there and Dawn and I think he is on of those creepy guys with a fake profile. She says she’s video chatted with him and she knows it’s him, but we don’t believe her. She recently said that he bought her a 2017 Chevy Tahoe and he was going to fly her out to San Bernardino ALONE!!! 😱 She has an autistic child, whom she never leaves. She even quit working all together when she realized he was autisic. Now she is going to leave her son to fly out to San Bernardino ALONE!!! Something is not right!!! And we are afraid for her safety. Idk where else to turn!! Please help us. We don’t want anything bad to happen to her.

    • Elena

      Oh, and as I am reading these other casting calls, she said that he also too paid her credit card dept. Just like some of the women who are also seeking help!!!

  21. Molly

    Hey Catfish crew,

    My name is Molly and I live in Virginia Beach, VA. I really need your help. It came to my attention that there is a snapchat account using my name that is talking to men and sending men naked photos of me. When I asked for the photos that had been received, I recognized them as photos I had sent my ex-boyfriend THREE YEARS AGO. This ex-boyfriend is the only person I ever gave consent to see these pictures, therefore, I am 99% sure it is him. I have gone to the police in Virginia and they were no help, so I honestly didn’t know what else to do. I’m thinking, if he’s doing this three years after our relationship, then it could possibly go on for the rest of my life. And, I need to take action now. I wish I had a love story for you, but I don’t. I really just need help. Thank you.

  22. Billie Breeden

    Dear Nev, I think I have a unique situation . What makes it so unique is that I have met the person who’s catfishing me . Well at least I think he is. We met several years ago online on Facebook I was actually talking to his friend and we have all been friends for about five years now . Well the relationship I had or was having with his friend was a rocky one as he was married at the time and having difficulties with his wife such a sordid long story . But to make a long story short , his friend wasn’t around like he always had been for a long time years in fact in which time I’d had a heart attack and several operations in which they’d put stents in my heart and I had become dependant upon his friend and was very much in love with him. I turned to Peter who had grown up with Alan my original friend . Peter was very supportive and caring and helped me to see that Alan was married and had responsibilities to his wife whom Peter said he loved very much so as I turned to Peter we became very attached to one another and started our own relationship for a year we planned to meet and marry and be together . Well as time went by Peter worked and saved to come over to marry . Both men I sent money , to help I thought as they needed help and Alan had become homeless and I felt responsible for that as he said he’d left his wife for me even though I told him I had a relationship with Peter the total to Alan was twelve hundred dollars some of which I felt I had to give him because he threatened to tell Peter I was talking to him so I did it . The money I sent to Peter was to help his online business . He has since paid me some of the money back . Anyway as Peter came over for about 18 days we made plans to marry , though he said it was my responsibility to pay for our marriage and liscene all of it which hurt my feelings a little plus he publicly told another lady on fb that he was going for a vacation to America , forgot to mention they are both from Rochdale England . So Peter wanted to have dual citizenship he said it mutiple times . So Peter has come and gone three times now and still tells people on fb and his family that it’s vacation and his like that . The problem is that he has been very distant to me but still says he loves me and wants to marry me but he doesn’t talk to me much and disappears a lot even on holidays says it’s because he’s drunk and passes out or tired yet I see him on FB and he hides behind other profiles and I believe or am beginning to believe that he only wants me for citizenship to the USA and is catfishing me to do so . I suspect he has others online and that in the past women have sent him money and for menits just he wants to be in America and be an American citizen . So much to this story . It was a question of catfishing or cheaters . I believe I am being catfishing for a citizenship and a part time home in the USA . Hope all this make sense and that maybe you can help me or direct me to someone who can . I think that the work you do here helps so many people out there lonely people who get taken advantage of every day and what you do helps then see reality and also other can learn from these experiences and maybe not get hurt . And also shows the catfishers that they are getting real people some like me who are emotional and sad and lonely . Thank you all even if you don’t contact me , please keep doing what you’re doing . Sincerely yours , Billie

  29. Missy Simpson

    HELP?! My sister is being actively catfished by “Dierks Bentley”?! I can’t talk any common sense into her. She is just sure it is really him. “He” found her on Twitter. She left her husband of over 10 years (62 year old 5 foot tall vertically challenged and toothless truck driver) and is currently sleeping on my Mom’s couch in her double wide, driving my Mom’s car. She is a wonderful 48 year old woman with the most caring heart. She has a tendency to get taken advantage of in so many areas of life. She received employee of the year award last year, and won out of over 4,000 employees. She is a caregiver at a retirement community and absolutely loves her residents. I think she would make an amazing subject for your show and I BEG FOR YOUR HELP?! She literally has nothing to lose, but maybe you could help speak some common sense into her world.

  30. chris

  32. Deb Smith

    Hey, my name is Deb I’ve recently married my darling husband and had both my parents die within 18 hours of each other.

    A character calling himself Neil Anstey has been hassling me on line, accusing Dean of infidelity etc, but he/she/it seems to know far too much about me!

    I’ve checked their Facebook profile – no friends or pics. I’ve googled them, same result,

    They also send flash messages.

    I suspect who it may be, but I don’t know how to prove it! If you guys can, they need to know that this is neither big or clever.

    Final insult I was sent funeral plan info and got calls from funeral insurers on the day I cremated both my parents, they were addressed to Debbie which is a name I never use.

    Deborah (or Debsie babe – as my dadsie babe and I used to call each other)

  33. Jacob Kingsly

    What’s up, my name is Jacob Hunter Kingsly, and supposedly I’m dating Kimberly Johansson from MTV’s Real World Seattle’s “Bad Blood cast. I believe it’s truly her but then again I don’t have any reason to say it is. She hasn’t video chatted or called me on the phone but we interact on Facebook and Facebook messenger. We use to text each other on the phone but she recently stopped replying. I really enjoy all of the photos she sends me and all of our convos. I fell in love with KIMBERLEY. Not a catfish. So this should be interesting. I just hope it’s her.


    I’ve sent over a application please see if yaw received it ..

We’ve been talking for about two years now and we’ve been in a relationship for about 15 months. Never seen her outside of her Instagram pictures, when we try to skype she says it wont download, try tinychat her webcam doesnt work, I think somethings going on but I don’t know what to do to be sure, which is why I’m contacting you. I’d really appreciate your help on this, never in my life have I felt something like this for someone, and it’d be such a big help to find out once and for all if she is who she say she is. I’m not even bothered if she isn’t the girl in the pics, just need to know it’s a girl at least. Thank you for your time

  36. James Robert Jenness

    Well I feel this is the only chance I’ll ever get to meet her.I have absolutely fallen in love with a woman from Uganda, in south Africa. We talk almost every single day,send pictures on Facebook and instagram. I believe it is really her but we are unable to video chat due to network failure or some other issues. I am from Modesto, California. I lived here my whole life. I am 27 years old and she is 24 years old. She so far away from me, I’ve never felt so strongly for someone before. I want to marry her and start a life with her. I truely believe she is my soul mate. I will do whatever it takes to meet her. If Mtv Catfish show could help me I would be in forever grateful and I believe this will be a happy ending for the both of us. Please help me Nev Schulman , from James Robert Jenness. I am willing to talk more about this please contact me. Thank you

  42. Heaven

    Me and a guy from Michigan have had an online relationship for almost 8 months. We met on instagram and started snapchatting daily. I have wanted to go to Michigan to meet him but money is always an issue with us. Sometimes when we talk about me coming to Michigan when i save up enough money , but he always tells me it wont be the same when i visit. I feel like he has some stuff to hide and i really want to know if this is all real or if he really is hiding something. He means a lot to me, and i really want to have something more than an online relationship with him. Please help me..

  43. Brandon

    For the past 2years i talked to this girl from the U.K. I met her on a penpal site,and we really like each other. But after 5days,she completely stoped talking to me and i never heard from her again,afew months after that she found me on Facebook and we started talking again. But another 5days pasted and we had an argument about if she was real,she got mad and blocked me. Sadly i Couldn’t let her go,so after afew months i made a new account and friended her and she accepted it. I told her who i really was right away and she was fine with it. So after awile i looked through her pictures and friends to see what’s up. I had found her sister and reached out to her and asked about her,and she said that she has done this to people before,but i never got an answer as to if she’s a girl or if she’s even real. After i contacted her sister,she got upset but understood why i did what i did. I was confused and asked her sister if she told her about what i did,but she told her mom about it….i just so confused and broken about the whole thing,because i need answers! I need closer in my life. Please help me out.

  44. Diana

    Hey Nev and Max
    This is too crazy too be true but a woman can dream can’t she???!! I was contacted by a very famous person on instagram. We have been talking for a few months and I want to believe it is him but it just seems crazy. I don’t want to mention the name because this seems like a public forum and wouldn’t want to expose this man for no reason unless you guys are actually going to take this seriously. I am doing this for the person maybe even more than for myself. This actor seems like a wonderful human being and if someone is posing as them, talking to woman pretending to be him, and worse of all asking for support for his charities and stealing from him then I want them to be stopped. All I will say is that this man was on Criminal Minds and he calls me “Baby Girl”. I am desperate to find out if I have an actual connection with this wonderful man or if I am being Catfished and this phony is possibly stealing from this man’s charities by getting women to send money to a fake address and taking away from the real charity for cancer and MS!!Please…. for his sake and mine….contact me. Love you guys and what you do.

  45. Hannah

    Recently this guy has messaged me saying he had a crush on me and already started calling me baby but he has kids and we met on instagram I’m scared he isn’t real but he wants to date and take me out but now that I told him I live in Texas he said he’d move what do I do it’s so confusing to believe his fantasies of dating

  49. Keiwanis Jackson

    Hey how you doing? I met a beautiful woman on a website called LatinCupid.Com..We’ve been talking for 8 months now and it seems like everytime we try to make something happen, it never follows through.She currently resides in the Dominican Republic and I in Maryland..Everytime I attempt for us to meet, it never works out..Supposedly she came to the U.S but instead of coming to Maryland,she went to New York and that basically brought an end to our relationship..Not exactly sure what is going on but I know with your help i can surely find out..

  50. Susan

    Hello.. I am an idiot is how I feel! I live in California and my catfish supposedly lives on a ship as an engineer. I have fallen for every thing he has told me. His mother is from Brazil and father Denmark. He has a son he says. He has no other family that can assist him.. his parents died same place same time same instant he told me. A car crash killing them both 11 years ago. He has sent me a snapshot of a frozen bank acct! Someone has tried to use his acct so until he can get back to Denmark to prove his identity he is broke. He has sent me an email from the company he works for discussing his retirement process. He has sent me 5 pictures. 4 of himself and one of his son. I know all these things can be made up and sent to me.. I have asked for more proof of who he is. I get nothing.. except coldness and anger from him! He says he loves me yet won’t let me email his son because he won’t give me email or address or phone number. I have 3 different satellite phones he has called me from.. he supposedly is on a contact til July 31st.. in the meantime he needs my financial assistance as he is stuck on this cargo ship carrying crude oil. Till the end of July. He can get home at the end of his contract.. omg, it gets better! He has caught Malaria, no money for food, or cell phone bill. He needs money to get on a speed boat and go to Florida to complete his retirement on a ship over there. To make it all worse I love this imaginary person. He says all the right things. He has convinced me that he is not a liar and his feelings are true for me. One thing he knows for sure is he loves me and is ashamed of his financial situation. I have sent money to him via money gram. When I question him he is so good at making me feel like I am the bad guy for even questioning him. Basically, how dare me question his integrity? He could never hurt a lady. I have tried doing the reverse call search and nothing comes up to identify him. He says he knows the show catfish and it offends him that I could think of him as one! What I have is:
    1. 3 phone numbers
    2. An email address
    3. 5 pictures
    4. All oh our communication via text or email and phone calls
    5. The name of his company he works for
    6. A snap shot of a bank acct that has been frozen

    He knows I am struggling believing he is for real yet every thing I think of to try and get from him comes back Back yes .. anyway we should expose him.. please. He is still close to shore workin with customers he says .
    Anyway, he is really good at Manipulising and I want to get to the truth and bring me closure or a good man if he checks out to be real.. this unknowing is killing me!! M mind is clouded and need clarity from you and your team… please help me reveal him!


  51. Asia Desautels

    My sister is talking to this guy who is not giving her a picture or giving her his real name and she thinks he maybe laying to her and also I am hoping that she is not going to get hurt they have been talking for a year and she is 16 and he is 18 so he says he comes up with reasons why he can’t send pics and he gets really upset when she asked him to send a pic I would like for. You to see about him please I want her to know that she needs to be very careful

  52. Jamie Wallace

    Nev and Max,

    About 3 months ago, I followed this guy on One day, he liked all my recent pictures, so I went back and looked at his account again. I saw that he had changed his bio to “single” so i DM’d him. We started talking, he became my best friend and i eventually fell in love with him. I told him everything, he knows everything about me and he told me everything about him. However, the story is slowly falling apart, and I am figuring out some things on my own. I found a second instagram account,which has over 30k followers with the SAME PICTURES as the first account. When confronted about it, he said the bigger account was his first one, but he uses it as a way to keep his friends ex away. Apparently she had this crazy ex that wont leave her alone, so they pretend to be dating so he stays away and that’s what the 30k account is for. I have pics attached of the accounts. He also said that his father passed away in a car accident while on the phone with him, so he would never talk on the phone. He told me he is an electrical lineman, and works every day so he can’t get time off to see me, and every time I get mad, he refers to his heart troubles (chronic heart failure) and anxiety so I am guilted into not being mad anymore, which is usually what happens when I ask him to download skype or to Snapchat me. I also found his Facebook, where the occupation is different. I found an account of Mark Williams, who is Matt’s apparent father, who he said was passed away. Matt also told me that his sister Mack, is short for Makaila, but I found her Facebook and her name is Mackenzie. He gave me mack’s phone number, and she says it’s legit, but if I look up her number, his number, and his friend Leah’s number, none of them are in whitepages archives and none can provide location or anything. I already know he isn’t really matt Williams, but I would really really like your help figuring out who this person is, and how they know so much about the man they pretended to be!! I ALMOST FLEW TO TEXAS FOR SPRING BREAK TO SEE HIM. PLEASE PLEASE HELP

    (ps I sent this in an email also, with attached pictures of the accounts and texts with him)

  53. Cinnamon Walker

    Hi nev and max, my name is cinnamon I’m from new Orleans. I’m a big fan of your show, I love watching it and hearing the stories and watching some of them be sucess stories and some being heart breaking stories, because they are scared to be them selves and end up hurting others and them selves . Now I’m in a relationship, been in it for a year, and deeply in love with each other. The point of my story is maybe hopefully to help others to be honest and just be them selves, I have a serious skin condition some people look at me funny, some are scared to touch me, but that dont bother me. Now I meet my current boyfriend on POF, I could of sent him fake pictures and lied about me and the way I looked, but I didn’t I was honest, and when we would talk every day and got to know each other, we talked for about a month before we meet, and yes I was scared to meet him face to face, even though he knew everything about me I was still scared. But when we meet he was already in love with my personality and my attitude so my looks didn’t bother him at all. Here we are a year later happy and in love with each other, and he reminds me everyday how beautiful I am and how much he loves me. And I still can’t believe that this guy who can probly have pretty much any girl he wants chose me but he did. I’m telling my story to hopefully help others to just be honest, because you never know. If its meant to be, then its meant to be. If not then don’t let it get you down, because there is someone for everyone out there. You just have to be yourself and be honest with the person you talking to…
