CSUSB professor interviewed about ‘catfishing,’ what it is and how to avoid it
Feb. 7, 2022
Kelly Campbell, CSUSB professor of psychology and a nationally recognized expert on relationships, was interviewed for an article on the streaming service’s website about the documentary “The Tinder Swindler,” which focuses on convicted fraudster Shimon Hayut and the dating scam known as “catfishing.”
The article reads, in part, “With all these horror stories, is catfishing really as common as it seems? Dr. Kelly Campbell, a professor of psychology at California State University, San Bernardino (and real-life love doctor), has researched the topic extensively and says that real-life catfishing is a little different than what we see in pop culture. ‘When I started my research, I realized there are many more reasons why this happens than were portrayed on Catfish,’ Campbell says. Here, Campbell explains why catfishes lie about their identity and how to make sure you don’t get baited into a fake flirtation.”
