SELFIE queen Karen Danczuk has revealed Catfish fraudsters keep stealing her famous shots to use on dating sites and social media.

The 33-year-old spoke today of her irritation that strangers are using her pictures on their profiles, as she woke up to more messages alerting her to fakers on sites such as Match.com and Elite Singles.

She told the Sun Online: “It’s just getting a little bit annoying now, obviously I’m flattered, but it’s a little bit annoying.

“It’s the most bizarre feeling.

“I woke up a bit grumpy this morning as I got messages off people saying ‘I’ve seen some pictures of you’.

“It wastes my time constantly having to report it.”

“There was one lady, I say lady as I assume it was a lady, on Facebook and she was using all of my pictures and I reported this particular one and Facebook said they are not violating any rules.

“But I had one last week and they closed the entire profile down.

“This year with Twitter to Facebook to dating sites I’d say probably about 30 [incidences of finding her pictures or name being used].”


“I don’t search for it but I always get messages as the public are really good, bless them, so I get a message on Instagram saying ‘by the way I’ve seen this profile’.”

“In the past week I’ve messaged about two.

“There’s a couple of profiles of people that have used it on Elite Singles, they’ve used Karen Danczuk, but moved the letters around.

“I think what if you met these people and they turn up and then it’s not me.”

“It’s just getting a little bit annoying now, obviously I’m flattered but it’s a little bit annoying.

“It’s the most bizarre feeling. They say that they are from America or they’re in Australia.”

She said that “real profiles” – people using her name and pictures – have been seen or reported on Elite Singles, Plenty of Fish and Match.com.

Karen said it is difficult to report people on dating sites as you need to be signed  up, so she will often ask the people who have alerted her to report the fake profiles.

The former wife of Labour MP Simon Danczuk tweeted this morning to say: “Starting to get a little irritated now by people (I assume women) using my pictures for FB, Twitter, dating sites etc to create profiles.”

One Twitter follower commented: “So many guys are going to be so disappointed when they find out the truth!”

And another said: “Imagine that. Men go on a date thinking they’re getting you, and end up still knocking up Dusilla von Catfish regardless.”
