Netiquette IQ Technical Term of The Day - Catfish


 ==================================================



Definition: catfish
“A catfish is someone who creates a false identity online to deceive victims, often as a means of attracting romantic interest. Sometimes a fantasy relationship is the sole purpose of the catfish. Often, however, the intent is either to defraud directly or to commit identity theft and access funds through selling the victim's information.”  (WhatIs.com)
