I had a bad vibe about our new triplet mom. I spent more time than I should have researching her and couldn't find anything definite, but there just was something not adding up about her story. Looks like I wasn't the only one as she's been banned.

It's too bad that people come to JM and lie with outrageous stories. I think it's been almost a year since we had a multiple troll. It always makes me leery about welcoming anyone too much as our section of the board seems to draw people with trolling tendencies.

I wondered how long that would take. The really shocking one for me was armywife something or another (I forget the numbers) that had twin girls. . . .She was in the Jan and Feb 10 PRs I don't know if she posted here or not but I was really shocked!

Was Armywife the one whose twins were born on different days/different years. Dec 31 and Jan 1? IF so, her being banned didn't surprise me either. This doesn't hold true for all of them, but a lot of the trolls seem to have poor English skills. They tend to say things like "I seen" and use I and Me wrong for instance.

I must have missed this... Glad she was banned then. People obviously don't have anything better to do but make fake identities for themselves on message boards.

I must have missed this too. I had my suspicions on someone the end of last year. She came up pregnant with twins less than a year after having twins and one of the died. She posted here and I questioned her about a few things and never saw her again. It's sad that ppl have to make up such things. I know there was someone in a PR that was the host and raised money for something and then took off. Who in the world has the time to make up such stories. Just crazy.

The playroom I'm in had a troll (our host) who had a persona in this group as well. I barely have time to post anymore (twins are super mobile!), I can't imagine wasting time here to post about make believe children/pregnancies.

Her story did seem very weird. I wonder why people even make up fake stories ...what do they even get out of it?

She posted in the newest prego mommies thread. I kept replying trying to see if I could get her to slip up I was following a friend on another section of Jm and saw a post from her there. I had my suspicions about her from that post. She didn't post on the multiples section for a couple days after that.

Army wife was in my playroom.

She didn't make sense from day one. And this triplet one irked me too...

It's crazy these people have this much time on their hands to think up all this crazy stuff!

**I'm not a troll, I just tend to forget about this board hehe

There was just one in Closely Spaced that was banned too, but she had been around for a long time before she got caught.

It is pretty crazy. When I first came to JM I was afraid people would think I was a troll LOL! But now I see that there are lots of people with close pregnancies after/before twins...lots of people with 3 kids closer than mine or 2 sets of twins and so on. I feel a lot better realizing that I don't look like a crazy person anymore LOL!

I went to read her posts and I must say how pathetic to make up losing a baby. I feel so bad for the women in her DDC who were fooled by her and wasting prayers on her. I just can't believe someone who would make-up something as tragic as losing a child. Sick is all I can say.

I get so pissed about people who post about losing a child. My heart goes out to anyone that loses a child and than to find out they lied and wasted my thoughts and prayers. That is so low. I was always worried about people thinking my story was made up since so much happened to us.

Yeah, our pregnant-with-twins host ended up being a troll. She might have been the one that collected money for something. I'm not sure about that. I was surprised when I found out, but then, once I thought about it....not so surprised. She never showed pics of herself that I can remember. They most definitely were never in her siggy.

As far as having 2 sets of multiples, one of our PR's twin mommies is pregnant again and it looks like twins (the last she told us). But, it looks like one of them might not make it and I don't think she has posted how the last u/s went. She's on FB with us, so I'm pretty sure she's legit. One of the twins looks like her, so she'd have to be stealing adult/mommy and twin pics from someone else to be a troll. Plus, moms who have had twin+ pregnancies are statisitally more likely to have another multiple pregnancy than a woman who has never had a multiple pregnancy.....because of this, my mom has told me to be careful about getting pregnant again.

Has anyone seen Catfish? It is a good movie that shows how sad these trolls lives can be to create this alternative life online. I consider myself a strong woman, but what the woman in that movie had to take care of on a daily basis - honestly, I'm not surprised she created a whole other life online. I won't ruin the movie by telling you what it is. But, I'll say that she created a FB account as a fake person and even created 15 other accounts of "friends" to talk to her on her Wall to attract other people to interact with her. It's just sad and disturbing. It'll be a long time before I forget that movie. (I also saw a Dateline type show that had the woman who's pics the troll used.)

I haven't even heard of Catfish, but it sounds interesting.

I'm amazed that a troll could end up being a host before being caught. She must have been good at being fake.

I know there are lots of people out there with multiple multiples, especially if they've used fertility assistance. You only have a higher chance of multiples again if you have frats. There are families out there with a set of ID and a set of frats thoguh.
