Fake dating profile
There are a lot a spammers, often from Russia and Nigeria (and many other places), that specifically target dating sites and other social network sites, such as My Space and Friendster.– If a person requests your personal information such as phone number, address, or any other type of personal or financial information, they may just be using the dating site to collect information to use for identity theft or some other fraudulent scam.– If for any reason, the person or the message seems ‘to good to be true’, this should urge you be careful.
I’m not saying that you should never respond to messages that meet these criteria, but if you do, proceed with caution! Remember, online or not, real world rules still apply.
They won’t admit it, but I have personally seen some of the smaller or more obscure dating sites ‘pad’ the website with fake profiles and even go so far as to send a message to their members from this ‘fake’ person in the hopes of generating more activity on the site.
The larger, more well known dating sites have no reason to do this and generally have employees whose job it is to monitor new accounts and weed out the spammers and the scammers.
The methods we use to detect fakes are both manually done and using automated software tools.
Mostly, we use common sense methods that you can use yourself to spot suspect profiles.
