He wears two or three gold chains around his neck and Nike sneakers cover his feet. He holds up a bundle of cash so that it shows on the photo with his big new car. He is Cadenaman — Chainman — one of the characters on the Instagram page Cubalseros, created by a Miami Cuban American to poke fun at recent arrivals from his native homeland.

“He has a Mercedes and a bunch of cash in his hand, but he's pumping the cheapest gasoline,” says the Cubalseros creator, who asked to be identified as Jorge because, he says, anonymity is what allows his page, which attracts about 400 followers daily, to grow. The page, created in April, has more than 29,000 followers.
