Fake Facebook accounts having conversations with one another, anyone else come into contact with this?
As well as a completely comprised fake girlfriend account. Has anyone else experienced this? It’s a group of about ten people. Whenever I click on their profiles they are all friends with each other, and ONLY each other, and maybe a few other people that happen to be of Indian or Asian descent with CEO titles in their job description. The girlfriend– same thing. She has a "roommate," comments on his page, and has a ton of pictures that are flawless and vapid to say the least. They just look completely choreographed and overdone. She "tags" pictures of him, although there are NONE of them together, or even with the other one somehow being in the background or anywhere in the same picture as them. None of them with her in his house, even though he claims to have been in the relationship for over a year. When she "writes" on her page, the tone, spelling, and manner of writing are very similar to his, and the posts are of things that are very stereotypical, and things he would probably want her to say; for example he wrote something about a home renovation project he has undertaken, and she "responded" with something like "yes, I am very impressed." There are times when she "scolds" him, so to speak, but it sounds so much like an internal dialogue, it isn’t even funny.
They both go to church and live this quaint, picturesque lifestyle, even though he, himself, regularly makes posts that are so far beyond anything a Christian would say, or think. And he has never gone to church before. I’ve actually caught him posting fake pictures of other things, like certificates, places he’s supposedly been to, and they were completely lifted from Google.
He also owns a website with over 15,000 PLR members– that is, fake members whom he claims are real.
What really baffles me is that these ostensible accounts occasionally leave posts on his daughter’s (who is real) profile, and she either just "likes" them, or makes a brief acknowledgement (not really engaging them), and moves on. She lives on her own now, I think.
Is this even possible? That was rhetorical. I guess, likely is what I was after. He always has struck me as a bit superficial. Lying comes easily to him. Was wondering if this sounds like it could be fake profiles to you, and if there are any ways I could know for sure.
There are tons of fake accounts on facebook. Some of them are bots. Some of them are people using fake accounts for playing the games that require help from friends, and make posts to keep them "legit enough" that facebook doesnt pay much attention to it. Some of them are people using like exchange sites to boost the numbers on their own page, but most of these sites require you to use your real account. NO one wants to post that much junk on their real account, so they make a fake account that looks real. And of course, all the likes you get from the like exchange sites are also fake accounts, but that doesnt matter – the point in doing this is social proof. Someone is far more likely to hit the like button if 50,000 people like the page vs 5,000, and you have no idea if those are all real accounts or not. you can guess if they are, but most people dont think that much about it if they like the content.
Your situation, however, I have no idea about, as it sounds like you are talking about real people just being fake, as in trying to give others a fake view of their life. Or, just weird people who dont have many friends and make weird posts.
