A woman was catfished by an older man using a model’s photos and what happened next will SHOCK YOU.
33-year-old Emma Perrier joined a dating app called Zoosk after a bad break up in 2015. She received a private message from a 34-year-old Italian man named Ronnie Scicluna but would have to pay the $35 subscription fee to read said message. She and her twin sister marveled at his stunning good looks and she decided she had to see what he said.
The message said: “You look beautiful.”
The man behind "Ronnie Scicluna" quickly admitted to using photos of a male model that he found on Google and said: “I’m always nervous about posting personal images of myself. I just don’t like pictures of me. It goes back a long way, to be honest.”
After failing to meet in person multiple times, Emma finally did a reverse image app on "Ronnie's" photos. What she found was Turkish model/actor Adem Guzel. Along with an official Twitter account, she found his model management website and his Facebook page.
In September 2016, Emma went back to Adem’s Facebook page and sent him a message so he would know what was going on, saying: “Hello Adem, we don’t know each other but a year ago I met a guy online and that man is using your picture and pretends he is you under another name. I wasn’t sure if getting in touch with you was a good idea but I needed you to know. Kind regards, Emma.”
Fast forward to January 2017, the communication between Adem and Emma reignited. In April, he came to meet her in London and the spark was undeniable. Adem said he wasn’t religious, but it felt like fate. They’ve been together ever since. “My catfish became cupid. And now we’re living happily ever after,” Emma said.
Even Alan (the man behind the fake "Ronnie" profile" was pleased with the couple. He said: “I think it’s brilliant Emma and Adem have met. It’s almost like fate.” With all this talk of fate, we have to know... do you think it was fate? Have you ever been catfished? Let us know in the comments or on Twitter at @WhatsTrending.
