It had been more than ten years since the idea of catfishing first became well known. It appears that people are still falling for phishing scams on the internet.
The identical subject was recently discussed in an episode of Netflix’s Untold series. The main characters are collegiate football player Manti Te’o and his fictitious partner. The Girlfriend Who Didn’t Exist, the first episode of Netflix’s Untold series, explores Manti Te’o’s relationship with the fictitious girlfriend.
Even if everyone involved in the current Netflix Untold episode wishes it weren’t real, the tale of the girlfriend who never existed is based on an actual occurrence.
A new Netflix documentary has a trailer, and it appears to be about Hawaii-born American football player Manti Te’o.
Te’o played in the upcoming football season in memory of the two recently departed individuals. He knew that those people meant so much to him that they would be devastated by the terrible news.
The story takes an unexpected turn when Te’o realises Lennay Kekua was never actually his girlfriend. He had, in other words, been an outsider.
Te’o admits in front of the cameras that his uncle was the one who first warned him that his fiancée was not who she claimed to be. The young footballer’s career declined after that.
The teaser also reveals Kekua’s true identity, which had been concealed by a mask. Evidence of catfishing points to Ronaiah Tuiasosopo, also called Naya.
Naya discusses the reasons she created her Kekua profile. She claims that she was too afraid to be authentic with Te’o.
The video also includes a voicemail in which a person Te’o mistook for Kekua tells him that she “loves him so much.”
The trailer gives viewers a peek of the media hysteria surrounding the fake girlfriend. This suggests that Te’o may not have been completely honest given that Naya acknowledges she was astonished by the story’s rapid ascent to fame (though that part remains to be seen).
