Who’s Vik? Why are ppl talking about him like everyone knows him

likefunny

I’m pretty sure Vik is/was here. I got a series of messages from what I honestly think were women and one from someone who I’m pretty sure was him.

What do you mean posting as a woman? Also, maybe report it? This is crazy!

Why does everyone know him?

Vik is a guy who created multiple profiles to catfish women on here. He’s posed as a principal and partner from BCG, McKinsey, and Bain.

SC1, he’s pretty impressive. We all have the same questions. It’s incredible how committed he is to these profiles and able to pull it all off.

Honestly if a man wants to join and post as a man, that’s their choice, and I agree that we need to be wary of not jumping to conclusions too quickly but it’s creepy with all these people posting/pretending to be other people

💯 agree .... I got some pretty weird questions about clothing and women and concerns about impropriety last night from a younger “woman” but the dwelling on some specifics made me curious but I’m still not sure so want to assume the best

Good ol Vik sending fake pics and names to people

Who is Vik?😀

Who is Vik?

Probably a creep. We have united to expose the creeps ✊

Just amazing research skills! How did you ladies figure it out? I am impressed...I often wonder how many men actually do what they say

Also, women on here have been amazing and shared information that helped piece it together.

On the one hand I think there have been men here:
1. Saw in networking mode 1-2 men’s profiles
2. Once argued with someone here who angrily said “we’ll talk about equality when you have to spend three months’ salary to by an engagement ring” which made me think he was a man. (But I’m not 100% sure) I asked if he was a man but there was no denying (but no confirmation either). I explained to him I did actually buy my own wedding ring and my husband bought his own too - there was no engagement ring. No response afterwards.

On the other hand, I’ve been personally accused of being a man posing as a woman when I played devil’s advocate on a post and didn’t think the man described was all that wrong. It’s been a while though so I don’t recall all the details.

I wrote the entirely of a memo that was filed with a partners name on it. I want to use it as a writing sample for a job app. I don’t know exactly what the rules are here but I don’t want to ask for permission to use it but I also don’t want trouble. Am I being super paranoid here or can a prospective firm somehow show my firm/partner my application materials?
