Summary of “A Catfishing With a Happy Ending”

“Don’t talk to me about trust, Alan Stanley!” Emma yelled.
From a quiet corner of a half-decorated shop, Alan called Emma back.
“I told her everything.” Emma told him she felt like a fool.
It was, Alan said, a “Big error of judgment, the worst and biggest mistake of my life.” But even in his telling of “The truth,” Alan told Emma he was 50, shaving off a few years.
“It might sound cruel what I’m going to say,” Emma told me, “But I carried on talking with him, after I knew who he was, only because I wanted to know why he did that to me,” Emma said.
“I’m 34 at the time, but maybe another girl, when she finds out, she could maybe go too far, maybe kill herself.” After the big reveal, Emma asked Alan if he wanted to meet her.
Emma decided that she needed to protect others from his scam.
“Hello Adem, we don’t know each other but a year ago I met a guy online and that man is using your picture and pretends he is you under another name. I wasn’t sure if getting in touch with you was a good idea but I needed you to know, kind regards, Emma.”.
