A mum ‘catfished’ her ex to find out where he was living when he ‘hid to avoid paying child support’.
The woman, known only as Stephanie, shared her master plan on how to get her daughter’s dad to pay up the £28,000 he owed on TikTok.
She explained: “My daughter’s biological dad stopped showing up two years ago. He hadn’t been paying child support, and the courts couldn’t find him.”
Despite a serious lack of information online, she managed to track him down.
She said: “I made a fake Snapchat. It’s the only one that doesn’t look fake because you don’t need an extensive friend history.”
Stephanie added: “I catfished him and got his address and where he worked. I sent all the info to support enforcement.
“Now I get child support weekly from his paychecks. He’s still behind £16.5k.”

Since hearing her story, many people have praised the mum for not letting him get away with it.
“‘Couldn’t find him…’ Meaning they weren’t looking for him and intended for you to just move along. Good work!” one viewer said.
Another added: “Dads who abandon their daughters are POS. Girls are the best!”
A third parent took the comments and dubbed Stephanie a ‘smart cookie’ for thinking outside the box.
