To verify your true "identity", ask her to send you a pic with her holding a placard with "I am a catfish" and a date on it just like the Reddit AMA.

How stupid can you be to keep getting scammed over and over again by the same person?

you shouldn't be loitering on the phone so long with this person. You should have met in the flesh at least so the catfish situation wouldn't even occur.

Hopefully you've not become emotionally attached to her internet photo.

Got catfished in 2010 by a nigerian love scam.

They used amateur model pix (badly posed, strange facial
expressions, other quirks) which I did not pick up on.

Eventually puppet #1 dies in the storyline, 2 weeks into it.

(Yes, in an auto wreck.)

Puppet #2 delivers the bad news (there was nothing really
suspicious about puppet #2, up until this point).

That was August 2010. It hurt!

I finally got closure when I found pix of both puppets on
the same website as one another (not the dating web site)
(not quite models; scammer used amateur photos only).

As luck would have it, I put in the photo of the primary (the
one I wanted, who died) (supposedly) and the photo of the
other puppet (totally different woman) pops up in the search!
