Deception on the Internet

This story has nothing to do with Kimkins and Heidi Diaz, but I think there are parallels in showing how easy it is to create an online persona that has little to do with the real person behind it.

An IM Infatuation Turned to Romance. Then the Truth Came Out.

OMG :( what a sad story!

I see how compelling it would be to create a new persona, if one were not happy with their own life.



Fantastic Blog, Sol! as always

Prior to Kimkins, I'd have had a difficult time believing this one. Wow.

DivaDi - Thanks! I was thinking of you earlier today and remembered that I promised to send you this link when we met the other week. Reading it again, I decided to post it as it truly is an amazing story.
