You passed quite a few pictures here that looked fake. I've been using Google Images for a while, it's a good tool. It can tell you for sure if the picture is fake, but it can't always catch a fake profile. Just remember, if it seems too good to be true, it probably is.

Here are more tips: 1. If they have 1 picture, scammer. What woman has one picture? 2. They ask how long you been on POF. If you say few days, they ask for email or what to text. 3. They say if you email at such and such address because its easier. Really? You have to log on to your computer to get email or pof email. 4. They are modeling in Ghana, and need money to get back home. Who buys a one way ticket from home? What model has one picture? 5. They never want to meet in person, always out of town or not even in the town they list. But you can email her... 6. Clearly a black womans picture but lists Caucasian as ethnicity. Just report them so others wont fall for it. POF could do a better job at confining email addresses before they can make a profile, but PIF doesn't listen to ways to make it better.

POF do NOT check any profiles. They have a few algorithms that look for key words and nude male pictures but POF staff do NOT check profiles? Who does? The members do and LOL the members do a shit job at it. Why is this so? Well, if a member reports an inappropriate pictures or profile text and POF staff do not take it down, then that profile is left in the system. The same member may come across the same inappropriate POF profile again and report it again not realising he's reported it before. The member will then lose his account and POF blocks the reporting member's IP address in their system so that person can never get back into POF. Members have learnt this and are not eager to report fake or inappropriate profiles to POF admin. Why should they? So if Marcus Frind or any of his POF staff have a bad day they can quite easily ban and block decent members from POF for doing their job for them. And yes POF is inundated with all kinds of fake profiles and scammers. I know this is true because years ago I reported over a dozen PORN pages redirecting to porn sites within POF's site. What's thanks did I get from Marcus Frind? I didn't even get an automated email saying 'thanks for helping our site'.

They could put the same picture in many dating sites. That doesn’t mean It’s a fake profile.

POF is loaded with fake profiles! Two simple ways to tell is if there name is something like; Nicole64376, Mary745899, etc. No one's going to use that many number digits for their username. Another way to tell is if you get a notification from them; meet me or a wink, etc, and then go to their profile just a couple minutes later, if it says the profile/account is closed, it was a fake.

When he pasted the fake pic url and the results came in I was like o_o! Damn!

Another easy way is if they are actually really hot thats usually a visual clue its fake. Like why do insanely hot females waste time going to a dating site to meet guys when they can have any guy they want. The other way is anyone looking for "generous" men usually means they are prostitutes or just looking to spend a guys money.

This has been helpful.A man actualy inboxed me from instagram.He has a nice pictures of an american military man with the same name on his badge.From the onset he talked of no video calls or voice calls due to security reasons.2 weeks later he was asking me for 250 dollars for his phone bill.I played along until I failed to send him money through western union.He insulted n threatened me.Am now scared that i have lots of my personal photos on Ig and he may use them to create fake accounts to scam others.How can I prevent such?some pictures people use to scam othrs may not be from our consents like in my case.He even said that my pics have been used for rituals n i will die in the next one week.God protect me.

There is app that searches information about photo on the internet so you can check who is presented on photo. iOS - https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/photo-sherlock/id1270107821 Android - https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=hippeis.com.photochecker

This is going to sound hateful but the women who actually initiate contact with me on sites like this are morbidly obese women and I am really into fitness.

That really doesn´t determine "fake" profiles. Many use that same picture of them selves in various sites. Which ables that THE picture is all over the webs. Damn...Do not show-off your pictures if you don´t want to be shown all over the net. ( copy+paste+search) SOLID
Privateo Privy (5 months ago)
That's where common sense comes in when reading the search results. If the pics show up as being someone famous or some kind of model and that person doesn't live in your area, then you know it's fake.

I'm so innocent about all of this ,like a babe in the woods ,Now do you have some Really good comprehensive information that dummies like me can USE...Generally speaking IF people get Educated And informed IT would seriously diminish the scamming issue.

Heres a way to tell when a real profile isn't really looking for someone.  If she or he is standing by these people out on beaches or at parks and are putting up pictures of them in social setting THEY ARENT LOOKING.  Because go figure I am age 60 now and am not socially active any longer by choice, but when I was age 30 or even 40 I was always in settings at different places.  Knowing this I would have never wasted my time having some date site profile unless it was a crap shoot to just check back once a month to see of some millionaire lady wanted me.  Now considering what my Dad told me in the 70s which I know to be true at this time in my life and that is that no pussy that has any looks is going to be on the street for long in the real world.  Also, if you see a woman standing by a Harley its because she is screwing the guy that owns the Harley because as a Harley owner I know a woman cannot lift a Harley off its kick stand, nor do you see women with looks riding Harleys around in public and if she has a horse she is only playing and not serious being maintenance on a horse is very high she will be around many Joe blows all the time if she has a horse and she wont notice anyone on the internet

Can you do this on mobile phones?
Sunclief (3 years ago)
Hello Ephraimice. I am using Windows 10 and it does not have copy image address any ideas on how I can sort this out?
Yono Soyel (3 years ago)
Maybe right clicking the picture and choosing "copy url" will do the trick.
Nystagmus sumgatsyN (3 years ago)
thanks so much. Why do they do this? I suppose they ask for your email and fish for info?
Yono Soyel (3 years ago)
Manny reasons. From scammers to info-phisers to just plain women and men with lack of self-steam who are craving the attention.
Allan horian (4 years ago)
Awesome..it is really helpful, i am using this to unveil many people who messaged me. thanks for sharing this wonderful information..
susan kirby (5 years ago)
Thanks for posting this, I joined a site and checked out the photos of the ones that messaged me, and have found 4 fakes already ! Two were on African scammers lists, and are still using the same photos with various names and emails. It was such fun busting them that I am on the lookout for others on the site and reporting them. Watch out for servicemen working abroad, engineers on ships, and so called widower with a child or children, there will be a sob story to follow, Thanks again.
