List Rules Vote up the victims on Catfish who probably should have figured out they were being catfished.

MTV's Catfish illustrates what can happen when someone believes everything they see online. Meeting a significant other on the Internet is completely normal, but what's not normal is never talking to that person over the phone, video chatting, or arranging a time to meet up in person. If someone doesn't ever want to see you or talk to you, that should be a clear sign that you may be getting catfished. Unfortunately for these individuals, they ignored the warning signs and were deceived.

Some of the craziest stories to ever come out of Catfish appear here. One man believed he was dating one of the biggest pop stars in the world so completely that he bought her an engagement ring. One woman believed that she had met someone who was communicating with her dead father. from beyond the grave.

This is not to mock anyone whose trust was exploited thoroughly enough to end up on MTV's Catfish, but instead to point out the bottomless human capacity for denial. Vote up the Catfish subjects who make the most affecting cautionary tales for anyone striking up a relationship online.
