A Catfishing Story With An Unbelievable Happy Ending

Ronnie, in fact, wasn’t who he claimed to be.

Alan Stanley, a 53-year old from Stratford-upon-Avon was self-conscious about his baldness and lonely after his 22-year marriage fell apart. It was easy for him to download photos he found on Google Images and use them as his profile pics. The photos he used turned out to belong to a model and actor from Turkey named Adem Guzel. Remember that name.

One day at work, Emma lamented that she longed to meet her boyfriend in person, and one of her coworkers questioned her online romance. “How do you know he is who he says he is?”, her coworker asked. “Have you considered that he could be an old man? Or a psycho?” At first, Emma was angry and adamant that her boyfriend would never deceive her. To be sure, her coworker suggested she run his photos through Reverse Image Search.

As their relationship passed the six month mark and Ronnie still refused to meet in person, Emma’s family and friends urged her to cut off the romance. Only then did Emma decide to give the Reverse Image Search app a try. Within seconds, she learned that the photos Ronnie used belonged to a Turkish man named Adem Guzel. Emma confronted Ronnie about it, but Ronnie was prepared. He explained to her that the photos were, in truth, him, but he had once used the stage name Adem Guzel when he tried to launch a modeling career. Emma didn’t fully accept his explanation, even as Ronnie guilted her by asking, “Don’t you believe in us?”
