Beware of the Perfect Gentleman

Beware of the Perfect Gentleman by RF Jurjevics (VICE)

An article about the guys whose pics get stolen for romance scams and catfishing in social media.

Geras shares his experience with a small subset of men, all of whom have been targeted by a very specific and insidious form of identity theft: Their real photos are stolen from their social media accounts and used by con artists in a ruse that began in the early days of social media. The women taken in by these schemes may be the primary targets, but the men whose images are used to lure them are the unseen collateral victims.
