We decided to do a tutorial that shows you how to identify fictitious profiles on dating sites quickly and effectively. You can follow the step-by-step process that we have written below in this detailed tutorial.

How To Identify Fake Profiles On Any Dating Sites Using Stolen Images From Other Sites

In order to spot fake profiles on dating sites you need to have the right tools. The tool we use to identify profile pics that are fake is called reverse image software. Reverse image software is computer software that has been specifically designed and created to help people identify where a photograph is being hosted on. This type of software is perfect to spot romance scammers and fake dating services such as LocalMilf.com and XDating.com and using stolen images to create bogus profile pages. Using reverse image software is invaluable and save so much time and helps you cut through all the BS. There's no need wondering if who you're chatting with is real or not. This software helps you with a couple clicks and it takes literally seconds.

With a click of a button you can easily identify where fake profile pictures have been taken from and what sites they are listed on. In order to use the software there are two different options for you. The first option is to input the URL for the photograph you wish to research and the second one is to upload the actual photograph. Both methods work in the same fashion helping you to research if profile is real or if it's fake. We have listed the two options with step by step tutorial so you can quickly and effectively spot bogus profiles. This will help you save lots of time and stop you from get ripped off by romance scammers and fictitious dating services trying to con you.

There are numerous sites that offer the ability to do reverse image searches. We like to use Google's reverse image search and TinEye.com both of which are free resources that work in the same fashion.

How To Identify Fake Profiles Using Stolen Images From Other Sites Using Google Image Search


This option uses Google's reverse image search engine to spot stolen faked profile pictures by pasting the url web link into Google's reverse image search.

  1. Go to Images.Google.com.
  2. Then click on the camera icon in the search box on that page.
  3. You will see 2 different options to choose, one is "Paste Image Url".
  4. With this option you need to put the link of the photo in the search box.
  5. In order to get the link of the photo you want to see is fake you have to go to the photo and right click on the image.
  6. Then click on the "copy link location", this will copy the link to the photo you want to do some research on.
  7. All you need to do now is go to Images.Google.com  and then "Paste Image Url".
  8. Then click on "Search By Image"
  9. If you get this error: "The URL doesn't refer to an image, or the image is not publicly accessible." it's because you are in the members area of the site not publicly accessible by Google search software.
  10. You can circumvent this by saving the image you want to do a reverse image search to you computer.

This option uses Google's reverse image search engine to identify fake profile by using the upload image option.

  1. Go to Images.Google.com.
  2. Then click on the camera icon in the search box on that page.
  3. You will see 2 different options to choose, click on "Upload An Image".
  4. Click browse and find the photo on your local hard drive that you want to research.
  5. If the photo is found on other sites you will see a list of links showing where that photo is found on other web sites.
  6. Many times the photos are copied from porn sites.

Besides Google reverse image search you can also use TinEye.com which works just as well and is just as effective to spot fake profiles using stolen pictures. You can upload and enter a web url to do reverse image searches the same as for Google image search .

How To Use Tin Eye


This option uses Tin Eye's reverse image search engine to identify fake profile by using the upload image option.

  1. Go to TinEye.com.
  2. If you want to upload a photo to TinEye.com just click on the white square with arrow in the middle of it. Then find the photo you want to upload from your hard drive.
  3. If the photo is found on other sites you should see a list of links where the exact same photo is located.

This option uses TinEye.com's reverse image site to spot stolen photos by pasting a web link of the photo you want to do a reverse image search on.

  1. Go to TinEye.com.
  2. Paste the link of the photo in the white search box that you ant to check and see if it's of an actual member.
  3. Then click on my gray magnifying glass and it will start searching the whole Internet to identify the exact same picture and the web link you inputted.
  4. If the photo is located on other websites you will see a list of search results.
  5. The search results will give you the link where the photo is located the same exact photograph. Many times the links will come back with a list of porn sites because these are the best places to get images of attractive looking women for fictitious hookup sites.

    I have been scammed also. Want u bad. Has profiles that lure you to easysex.com,firecams,and others. Then the fun part!!  A girl contacts you to meet up asks of you have an id. Wtf.  ID? Safe date badge, meet-up pass,hook-up ID.  All are fake as all hell. When you sign up they say it's free and to put in your CRedit Card# as verification of age and citizenship. Well then bam you  are charged an international fee along with a sign up fee and then the monthly fee. If you cancel then they threaten you saying you will not be able to visit other sites. Also they have an administrator tht will come on and tell you how to proceed. This bastard is fake also and I thought maybe I was getting help. No way. More threats in the tune of 200-300 US dollars. For going only half way thru the process and backing out. So if anyone asks for a credit card jut move along it is not what it seems. Also watch for the swapping Of sites. I didn't like wantubad told them and they sent me to wildsex4date and had the SAME scammers on it.., I caught and told the one user am that was it she was gone!!  Next they send me to spicy desires and well you know it's a fake right!!! Another is a girls e mailed me "from the site". Which I don't know!!! Says she can get me a ID from her special link. Ok then. Ilog into datebook single and use her name Inga and was supposed to get a profile and then upgrade. The money spent would be given back afterwards soni can get my id and a special code to cancel and reimburse me.  In total i had 4 different peple pulling on me to do what they wanted and was scared of the threats. So not sure what i can do!!So now I have to cancel everything. It really sucks, but now I know. Gotta be something we can do but ultimately it's my fault for not reading the fine print or to think a hot 20+ wants anything to do with a 41 yo divorced male with 2 kids and a mortgage Haha lol. Have a laugh on me. Not too long tho and help me out if you know anything.  Datingbusters.com is a great tool and check out "dating judge " also. Thanks.   Jason
