    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..

    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.

    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.

    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

    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!

    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)

    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…
