This week it emerged that three women in Chechnya, a mostly Muslim republic in Russia, allegedly made almost £2,000 by tricking fighters from Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (Isil) into thinking they were willing to become ‘jihadi brides’.
“I told him that I didn’t have any money, and he offered to sent me 10,000 [roubles - £107] on Qiwi-Wallet,” she said, referring to a popular Russian electronic cash transfer system.
Nev and Max have been travelling around the US for five years now, trying to mend broken hearts, help others get even, and generally having the best TV bromance ever.
You'd think by now no-one would dream about trying to fool someone over the internet in fear of these two turning up at their door.
The pair had Skyped before, but Ramon "didn't want to believe" that she was Paola. Loyda had used Ramon's money to buy herself an engagement ring and told everyone Ramon had proposed. The Aftermath: The pair decided to stay just friends, though it's unclear whether she paid any of his money back. She has since moved on and married a man named John, another guy she met online.
The Story: Lauren and Derek met on My Space eight years before the episode, and he had got her through lots of tough times, and supported her after she had a baby with an ex-boyfriend. Derek was exactly who he said he was all that time, and they started a relationship together, and he instantly bonded with her 3-year-old son. It was the most joyous and soppy moment in The Aftermath: In a special episode, Derek proposed to Lauren and she excitedly accepted.
However, they have been pretty vocal John had met Kelsey 'Beelzebub' in a psychology chat room, had only heard her voice once and had never video chatted. Two others from the same chat room, named Ellie and Adam, were in a similar relationship, and had also never met.
But John and Kelsey had a VERY close relationship otherwise (see above pic).
He later moved to LA, deactivated the Kelsey profile and continued his relationship with Ellie, despite all of that weirdness.
The Truth: After Kelsey sent Nev, Max and John to a fake address, they tracked her down at a murky casino.
She was actually Adam from the chat room, who admitted he took pride in catfishing others, having done it to about 40 people in total.
Her scheming came to an end when she was caught by Chechen police, along with the other two women, who now face charges of fraud, which carry a maximum sentence of six years in jail.
But none of this has not stopped the internet from celebrating these women as absolute ‘heroes’.The Story: Jesse met former Marine Brian on Facebook, and they had arranged to meet up, but he never appeared and stopped answering her calls.
