Man scammed almost 18,000 of his followers just by using a FaceApp to look like a Hot Girl

A youthful-looking Japanese female motorbike rider (pictured) has gained a huge following on social media - but not everything is as it seems.

The Japanese rider, who goes under the username @azusagakuyuki on Twitter, has gained a following of almost 18,000  with life updates and pictures dressed in a motorcycle jacket or posing with Yamaha bikes. But eagle-eyed followers suspected something wasn't right when a mirror reflection in one of the pictures showing a completely different face.

With long red hair, eye makeup, and feminine features, most people took the user for a young woman. But after a Japanese variety show has revealed the truth. A TV crew tracked the rider down and filmed the moment they removed their helmet, showing themselves to be a middle-aged man with a luscious head of hair.

He admitted to "catfishing" his fans, revealing he's been using tools like FaceApp and PhotoShop to alter his face and give him a feminine appearance because nobody wanted to see an "uncle", as he put it. FaceApp offers users a feature that swaps them to the opposite gender, making his con all too easy to pull off. He added that the "beautifying" process was enjoyable, as was the skyrocketing number of likes on his Instagram posts.
