After decades of being married, Thomas Peschel of Breckenridge, Minnesota said he couldn't believe when his sister told him he was on a dating site.

"My sister told me her friend saw me on Zoosk," Peschel said.

Peschel said he logged into his e-mail and saw tons of messages from Zoosk in his spam folder.

"I hardly ever check my e-mail, so I'm not sure how a photo of me ended up on the site," Peschel said.

However, there's a happy ending to this story.

"Don't hesitate to call the company and tell them to take you off immediately so you don't get your email bogged down with the catfishing," Peschel said.

Peschel said he called Zoosk and they took down the fake profile. His wife Denise said she laughed about the situation.

"I say if anyone wants him, they can have him," Denise joked.
