Fred Weasley Calls Out Catfish Using His Photo To Hook Women Online

Beware of the catfish using Fred Weasley’s photograph online.

Harry Potter” star James Phelps (who played one half of the mischievous Weasley twins) has been forced to reveal that he isn’t on dating app Tinder after a fan spotted someone using a recent snap of him as their profile picture.

“When a guy tries to catfish you on Tinder but @James_Phelps was your childhood crush,” wrote Twitter user @BriMasterMcPhee on Saturday.

She also posted a screen shot of the fake Tinder profile of 22-year-old “Trent.”

The tweet came to the attention of Phelps, who confirmed Tuesday that he is “NOT” on Tinder ― and that he wasn’t actually called “Trent.” 

Twitter users loved his response:
