One issue that many new people face when joining up when using a dating site is confronting a fake profile. A few profiles appear suspicious, and some are alright. Whatever the situation, it is still comparatively easy to make up a fake profile, and it is really dependent on whether the fraudster is so good that he or she can lure victims with it.
There is now apparently a way to help stop one self from being tricked by a fake dating website profile and that is by getting involved in some “soul” searching using the very online resource used to find love.
Google offers a new facility where an image recognition search can be conducted using any photograph seen on the web.
What one has to do it seems is quite simple! Just drag the picture of the dating site user one is interested in into the search space at Google Images. In less than a second, a variety of the same photograph or some quite similar photographs will be loaded in front of you. It will be necessary to check if the name on the dating site user’s profile is the same as the name on the Google search.
There is also now in existence a website named TinEye.com that may be used for a similar purpose.
If, in any online dating encounter the victim is asked for money by another site user, then this person is more than likely a fraudster.
In this situation, it is best to ignore such users and put on a pretence that you do not know them. Swindlers will do just about anything to get victims in their clutches. Often, victims just fall in love and can’t help themselves.
If a profile description is badly written, this does not necessarily mean a fraudster is on the loose, it might be just a genuine online dater who does not have good skills in writing and can’t articulate that well.
Thousands of daters get caught out by fraudsters and do nothing about it until it is too late. This so often happens out there on the internet where there are few checks and balances.
