My favorite Farside cartoon has two dogs, one sitting in front of a computer. The caption reads "On the internet, nobody knows that you're a dog". Looking at the full Te'o story, now that it's over, makes it look ridiculous that he was taken in. But, if it's true, it didn't happen all at once. It would have happened incrementally, with clever conmen and/or conwomen gradually leading him along. If you throw a frog into a pot of boiling water, he jumps out. But if you put them in a pot of room temperature water and gradually raise the temperature, they sit their until they die. I doubt that Te'o was conned, but I don't think that it's impossible.
