Is Someone Trying to Catfish me or is this Person Real?

 

Many times when using an online dating site, the person that you read about does not match the person typing in the information. This may be done for many reasons such as; they may be married, a person of the opposite sex, a young person, or someone out to do harm. There are stalkers and some out to steal your identity. There are many from other countries that are trying to get into the states. They are targeting you as their ticket in. Over time, I have learned some of the red flags to look for.

 

Many will send you a standard email they sent to everyone the first time. Some are a little smarter and put a few comments about your profile and then there are a few that actually read your profile and emails then ask your questions. So always be careful and never give out personal information. Most of the emails will have many compliments; how wonderful you look, you have a great smile, they loved your profile but give no details as to why. They are also usually financially secure and have a successful job. Usually there is a sad story about why they are on the internet looking for a soul mate. There is also the need for you to get on Yahoo messenger as quickly as possible. I have told you that if you do not have a secure email account they can find out all kinds of things about you. So please review the article about setting up your email.

 

Let’s take a look at emails I received from a “man named Daniel.” see some if you can find the red flags. I have ** the last name, dating site name and the company name he gave. The emails are just copied and pasted so you can learn from them.

Well a little about me..im a 51 years old single Man from California , but spent most of my life in Texas , I have a master degree in Business Administration from University of Hull in 1988..

His mom passed away shortly after our divorce. What about you.? why are you on here?

Im now in search of my soul mate, someone i can settle with as soon as i get back home. i’m ready to relocate anywhere she is. What are you looking for?

This man graduated from Hull and is an operational manager. Look at the grammar, the spelling errors and the use of capital letters. He also says from my profile I am looking for something similar, and I never mentioned anything similar to his comments. Of course, we have yahoo instant messenger! After I received this email, his profile was taken off the dating site. Here are three reasons why a profile is removed; the person removes it, the person was reported to the online dating service or they block you from seeing the profile. I expressed my concern that his profile was no longer on the online dating service, and this is the email I got in response.

 

 

Thanks again for getting back to me..I do really Appreciate it, I would be leaving tomorrow. Well i want you to know that this is my first time doing this online stuff , A very good friend of mine introduced me to this internet dating, he found his soul mate on here and i thought i would give this a try as well…so tell me how long you have been doing this online internet dating and how many people have you met on the internet,? You are the first person i’m trying this with and i hope that it does work out for me(us). My job is quite hectic but very rewarding .

More also, A Little more about me,I like to do all the normal things that a human loves doing. I want to find my best friend and lover wrapped up into one. I guess best friend and lover wrapped up into one really doesn’t describe it the way I would like.I want to meet that life partner that I can not wait to wake up in the morning to see or get home from work to share smiles, laughs and good conversation. I want to be able to pick up the phone at work and tell that special somebody what the goofy person in the next office over just did. I would like to meet that one person the person that will love me as much as I love will love her,And also show each other the love in little special ways,I am sick and tired of games!!!!. Send lovely E cards for no reasons or cook some soup when you are feeling under the weather. I guess you get the hint. I am a romantic and I do believe that my one love is out there…I would be looking forward to read from you and if you are really serious about getting to know one another even with the Distance then write back. Im willing to build a connection so when we meet we wont be like strangers. Tell me why you are concerned cause i took my profile out.
Dying to read from you again. Love

 

 

Do you notice the same grammar and spelling errors for a very educated and successful man? The interesting point to notice is he did not answer my question as to why the profile is gone, but he ends the email “Love.” I sent another email asking why his profile is off the online dating service, and this is what I received.

I think this person was trying to catfish me and probably from outside the country trying to get in. My emails back to him only asked why his profile was off the dating site and nothing more. In his emails; why does he agree and what is it? Why doesn’t he answer my question? I hope you see the pattern in these emails. This is one example of things to look out for. Please if you get any like this do not respond. I only did so I could get emails for you to learn from.
