My FB page gets one or two contacts from a fake profile every month. I report them to FB and I don’t respond. It’s my understanding that the scammer (who may be a woman posing as a man) use photos they’ve downloaded from the internet somewhere to use in their scam. If you reverse google search the images sometimes the search will return the legitimate source of the photos.

It sounds like you were aware you were dealing with a scammer during your interactions with the fake person. It’s an interesting study to break down the techniques the scammer used. Pretty much the same as my ex spath used on me in person, but taking full advantage of the total anonymity of interacting with you electronically only.

Consider saving your valuable time and empathy for interactions with your brother or someone else real like him, who would appreciate a friendly something from somewhere.
