Hello, My email is some what insignificant, and I apologise for wasting your time. I just wanted to reach out and say I feel for all the ladies who were duped by this person. I live in Australia, and I saw the Dr Phil episode 'To catch a catfish' the other day and those women looked shattered, especially Devon. I must admit, it was nice to see a happy ending for her and a big round of applause for banding together to make this person stop! All the best in your war against Catfishing, all the way from Oz :)
BRANDON ZANE WARNER:
Hi there, I was catfished by this same person, which I knew right away when I heard the voice on Dr. Phil. Definitely the same person. My cat fishing experience started in about 2003 or 2004. I met this person on The Sims Online, a game that was starting out at that time. Let me give you the names he/she was using then: on yahoo: jukeb0xjunky31 figment0520 and a bunch of variations of jukeb0xjunky. He said he was from Maryland, that he lived in Glen Burnie, had a twin sister named Dawn Warner, and his name was Brandon Zane Warner. He was a single dad, supposedly. There were several dates to meet set up, but he always bailed. I finally gave up after about a year and started dating in the real world, letting go of this person. However, I still think about this person once a day or more and wonder who he or she really was. Oh and their phone number was 410-409-8557. He used the following excuses not to meet me - he had an addiction to painkillers and had to go to rehab. His sister called me to let me know what was up. he had a car wreck. he had a serious heart condition and had to have surgery on it. he was afraid to fly. his sister had a surprise miscarriage. He actually sent me a box of what were supposedly his clothes, sprayed with his cologne. I gave them all to the Goodwill. I'm sorry that this has happened to others but I'm glad to know that I'm not crazy. This person was using pictures of a very built, tall, blond haired, blue eyed guy. He said he used to work for Verizon but was off work right then because of his heart condition, that he had also lost an infant son to the same heart condition. He said he didn't have to work because he inherited a fortune from his grandfather. He used to tell me about trips to Florida, he was a huge Nascar fan. He used to use phrases like, "Something that ugly shouldn't come out of your pretty mouth" whenever I would say a cuss word. He didn't think I should wear makeup, that I just wanted attention from others, etc. He knew a lot about music, said he was at one time a male stripper on a dare. He never asked me for money.
