To be deceived or lead on by someone on any social network, or chat session who's claiming to be someone or something they're not and tries anything to make you believe them with words that might interest you. While they're just sitting behind whatever devices they're using and their true identity is being concealed while giving you false information about themselves.

A typical catfisher would:
*Use False info or identification
*tells or sends you anything that interests you (very romantic or sexual
*will ask for money or talk you into joining any website you got to pay for.
*will constantly go through great lengths to ignore or make up an excuse to avoid any telephone conversation or video chatting.

How to avoid it:
*ask as many questions possible and see how they react.
*video chat or have a telephone conversation with them a few times.
*check their pictures or info out (Google the images they use)
