Someone is catfishing folks as Catfish host Nev Schulman

Nev Schulman Catfish texts and DMs

And in “ironic things I’m surprised didn’t happen sooner” news, Catfish host Nev Schulman sent out a warning via social media earlier today to make people aware that someone is catfishing folks pretending to be Nev Schulman!

Here’s the Facebook message from Nev followed by a screen cap of the text messages people have been receiving from a person claiming to be him:

ATTENTION! For the past 2 weeks I have been getting lots of tweets and DM’s from people who have received a text message from someone pretending to be me. Ironic, isn’t it? Anyway, I just wanted to let everyone know it isn’t me texting you (sorry) and that you should watch out and probably best to delete/block the number. #DontSendNudes
