A fake user is someone who imitates the online appearance of a person with the intention of defaming this individual by being rude, telling lies and bullying other users on the internet. They try to imitate them as good as possible, copying the original user's background picture and username to make it look more convincing. However, a fake user is not evil in all cases. Many people create fake accounts without any malicious intent, to avoid providing their real, identifiable information for example.
