Texas A&M Professor Commits Suicide after Catfish Scam

Yikes. I know "catfishing" happens probably more often than not, but this is just downright sick and demented on both parties. Yuck.

With the Manti Tao or however you spell his name thing, plus other high profile cases found this to be the worst of the worst I've heard in the past few years. Ten times worse than the To Catch a Predator incident.

I've often wondered how many of my AOL girlfriends circa 1996-1997 were 50 year old men and not 13 year old girls

That show is so good.

They're my soul mate, I couldn't live without them, they are everything to me, we have this deep connection that nothing could break.

What? They're fat?

They lied to me. I never said soul mate like you know "soul mate" I meant that as in someone I talked to. My God we sent pictures... I sent "pictures" know what I'm sayin. I just can't... they lied about their weight this is ridiculous I'm out of here.

I would tell the "girls" I talked to on ICQ/mIRC that I was in a band that opened for Papa Roach before they got big.
