    It's no shock that guys will lie about their careers online.
    But what about the ones who do it to your face?

    A guy at my gym claims to be a very successful architect. He's got elaborate stories about his projects and equally elaborate stories of why he can't show you anything. He claims that Architectural Digest features his work but never credits him because of some vendetta the editor has against him.

    Know anyone like this? Don't use his name, just describe his story.

    I met a guy that used to say he made concept art for video games and movies. Turned out that all the art he showed me was just a bunch of art he took from the web. lol

    I have met some people like too. This one friend kept telling everyone that he's going to a university (which is the same one I went). When I asked him about his study and the campus, his answers were all very vague. Everyone could tell he was lying. He kept that up for about a year.

    Then I met one other guy in class. Just within 10 minutes of talking with him, he was telling me he bought a $6 million home on a hill. Then he bought a $10 million home in West LA and is now renting to some movie stars, bla bla bla. I think it's just a bunch of BS.

    I just don't get why he has to impress me when I don't even know him. icon_confused.gif

    ^^^^^^^"Samintown" (the O.P.) is a fraud. Stolen photos. Newest fake profile. He's had dozens of names preceding this one. He's the stalker, muckraker and mentally ill guy. In truth, he is just an unemployed, troubled soul who should be given the full attention he deserves. Several of us are reporting him to the new Mgmt. Trust me - he'll be gone in a few minutes, once again, and he'll be right back. Poor guy. He's back and is using the name "Determinate" now.
