    Setting up the story for you....

    Last Spring, I was at my friends house, I was online and was chatting with a few people. I then get this random message from this GORGEOUS guy, he was asking what we were up to. Wanted to know if I wanted to hang out at his friends house with them. So my friend and I get stuff together to go over. I have his cell number and call this gorgeous guy, he said that they were on boat but will be arriving back at house in 5 min(the house was on a lake). So we get to the house and it was huge first off, we get inside and there are about 5 other guys in their mid 20s there, and the hosts of the house are in their mid to late 40s. Well I ask where Justin was and this one older guy was like oh he just left. So I knew something fishy was up...

    Turns out Justin never existed it was a fake profile, the other older guy that was a friend to the guys who owned the house had a fake profile and used some other guys pics. Man who would have that to do that lol.

    Anyways just yesterday I get a random message from this guy in NYC and his pics are the same ones from the "fake profile", so I ask to see more, well he gives me his myspace and sure enough, he is the real deal. How freaky weird is that? For someone to use this random guy's pics and then not even a year later to have the guy who the pics belong to, message me!!...

    Anyone else have weird stories like this....
    Hope you all have a great day!icon_smile.gif

    Well I think it shows there are alot of weird people out there that do strange things. And we should be aware of the dangers that could exist.

    Well this is the internet
    where you can be anyone you wanna be until
    that certain someone wants to meet you icon_rolleyes.gif

    I had two experiences about profile pics

    One was on another site a guy a picture of a model friend of mine for his profile pic
    I emailed him...and he was all embarrassed about it and took it down

    another was MINE....
    at first I was kinda faltered
    but then I thought HEY...that's ME! Get your own pictures

    So I called him on it

    It's happened to us all. It actually happened to me on here. I was talking to a guy on this site for like a month and a half, he had sent me numerous pictures, when we finally ended up meeting, he didnt show up and then the profile was gone as was the aim screenname and he never answered his cell the few times I tried.

    Yeah, I think we've all been fooled. But, if it's good to be true, it probably is. I'm generally pretty suspicious. I'll only believe people to a point (I guess that's why I'm a Scorpio.). Until I see them on cam, I'm usually skeptical. But, a few get by me. But, I do have to laugh at the guys who take pics that are easy to find on the internet as their own. Sounds like this guy was a bit better and took some obscure pics as their own. At least this guy did more work than usual.

    that was really stupid of the guy that faked in the first place, but interesting that the real one contacted you. Did you ever meet the real guy?

    BTW, once a fake tried to hit up a friend of mine with my friends own pictures. How stupid is that? My friend exposed him to the site admins and got the guy booted.

    No I haven't met the person yet. He just contacted me yesterday and we are chatting thru myspace. He is interested though already to grab some coffee and maybe a date next time I am in NYC. We will see what happens.

    AND! the reason for the post was not because someone contacted me with a fake profile. It was the fact that the person in these pics actually contacted me out of the blue.
    Cuz I mean we all have in some time come across a few of those, one actually about 2 months of talking to was like hey, so here are my real pics. The fake ones were of a hot twink looking guy in scrubs, his real pics an overweight young guy. And his excuse was that he was straight but curious so used the fake as a way to test the waters. lol...oh silly curious straight ppl, makes you laugh.

    Was IM'ed by a young 18 y/o 'lad' residing overseas and i commented on how he probably preferred water and warm weather to the snow and skiing/boarding we have here. he was totally confused and said he loved snow and hated swimming.... but profile (public) pic was him tanned in pool... 3 minutes in he admitted that he and his friend had a bet on who could attract more guys. he proceeds to say, 'I'll open up my private pictures which are really me'.

    Tried to be nice but afterward all i could say was 'you're 18 and your going bald?' Thank God for Charter Cable's broadband going down that night!

    I know someone on here who uses some other guys picture but he is closeted and afraid. I know what he really looks like now because we are myspace friends now but I knew from the get go his picture was false.

    even weirder is the african WOMEN THAT USE SITE ASKING FOR A PLANE TICKET and 50$ spending cash,.... even tho im bi/gay, tending more gay [as sexuality is not a static thing] why wouls any woman use a it like this?

    actually know of a guy that was bi and did it... craziest thing is she showed up, of course plane tix was non refundable... he was told yes they use general form letters to cum to the US, get citizenship,and some believe bis and gays are easier to convince.

    GO FIGURE...

    Speaking of fake profiles... I need to get verified soon. It's also crossed my mind that my ex may have a fake profile or two on this website and some others... it's sad he won't open a profile with his own images in it... oh well!
