Unfortunately, it is easy to create a fake profile online and catfish someone, but there are plenty of ways to catch a catfish! The first thing you’ll want to do is ask for another picture and see how quickly they can deliver. Next, ask for a video of themselves, but saying ‘Hi (your name). This rules out any stock videos that can be downloaded online. Last, of all, consider a video chat before meeting up. A quick video call helps to break the ice and also confirms who you’re about to meet, their mannerism, voice, accent, and appearance.
