A young woman named Amber was swiping on Tinder when she stumbled upon one of the most nefarious beasts in the world of online dating: a catfish. This guy, who called himself "James," was using a photo of former One Direction heartthrob Liam Payne as his profile picture.

Was he trying to scam women out of money, or just desperately making himself seem more attractive? Amber didn't bother to find out. Instead, she just trolled this doofus by dropping as many One Direction references as she could think of. And of course, he never caught on.

It seems remarkable that this catfish could be so dumb. But when you think about it, it makes perfect sense. Anybody who didn't realize young women on Tinder would recognize Liam Payne probably isn't familiar with One Direction's discography.

But of course, Twitter is full of Directioners. With their support, Amber's tweet has gone massively viral, racking up more than 34,000 retweets and 71,000 likes in less than a week. It's living proof that while 1D may be no more (RIP), their fans' love will never die. That's something "James" will never understand. Cause he's a dumbass.
