I caught a girl on here using a pic of a friend of mine. The girl I know, who was the actual girl in the pic is in her early 20's, married, a devout Christian, doesn't smoke, and has no children. The person who used this pic claimed to be 33, smokes often, "Other" religion, and has a son. I contacted my friend and let her know, and then I reported the fraudulent profile. It is now deleted.

Who would fake a pic like mine lol...yet it gets deleted weekly.....I'm guessing it gets reported for being fake or not me....how would people on here know if its me or not....so I had to include another pic on my profile showing myself without a beard and glasses....

lone stranger

Not everyone is playing with a full deck of cards is all. Many a man would have turned tail and run without speaking but surely she wont do that again. Just inviting rejection. It is not as if she doesn't know she is huge as she had posted a pic of her sister, which is foolish anyway. It takes all kinds and you have to expect the worse on dating sites and hope for the best, I guess. Never cease to be amazed at the stories I hear on here. I have had a couple of similar experiences and I just prefer the forums, much more interesting.

off the top of my head there was a guy which im still sure is on here using pics of a man that where from a weight lifting workout site..


besides the obvious give away of the pictures looking very photo shopped an downloaded he tried his hardest to convince me that HEY thats really me why would i lie to you act..however captain obvious not paying attention didnt notice that 1 of the pics had a trademark copyright symbol at the bottom saying from google,,


when i casually pointed this out to him with in 3 minutes he had took that inparticular pic down then blocked me..

i was confussed as to how come i was the 1 who got blocked when mr fake muscle google man was the 1 called out for lying an using fake images you would have thought i was the 1 to pull this s hit an he was mad at me..

some people have a lot of nerve thats all i can say..

I meet'em in person, no IM'ing. If you look nothing like your picture, which has happened. I'm up and gone on the spot and if you are offended and embarassed, too bad. This happened to me twice on meet and greets. One used her sisters picture and the other photo-shopped the hell out her picture. After confirming who they were, I brought up their pics on my phone and just left.

If it hasn't been mentioned...TinEye is a program you can download, and right click on the pic, hit TinEye in the drop down box, and it will search the internet for the picture.

I had a meet last night. In his pics he looked about 45 and in shape. In person...he looked about 65. And was wearing dirty clothes. Then he says "You're really beautiful....did you loose weight? Because you look a little heavier in your pics". UMMMM NO!!! But thanks for critiquing my pics.

Hilarious! You should have brought your dog and scared him away.

That has not happened to me YET but now I am leary, again, of these sites. I think he was to worm his way in for a botty call.

Both of my dogs!! My profile even says I don't want to start on a lie....and he still contacted me and lied. Loser. Did he think he was going to magically go back in time when we met?

I think there may be something more to this. I've run into some who are apparently here to scam. If they won't answer a direct question about the location of a picture and then suddenly swap the picture rather than say where it was taken? What about the ones who seem to be having trouble with English language but they have a Bachleors degree? There seem to be a lot of foreigneers here or are they just modern day Gypsies who have found a better way to get money. Put widow on your profile and they think you are rich.

My version of this scam is: I get a msg from someone who is fairly nice looking. They often have a son maybe living elsewhere, or w/a relative in a foreign country. They usually have poor English, say they're from Italy or Norway, or ? And--can't come visit because they're working on a big project, either here or afar. I've gotten quite a few of these, and am beginning to think it's the same guy, finding me on different chat sites. Anyone else find this sounds familiar? My surmise is that after they butter me up, they'll probably ask for money, but I never let it get that far.

That doesn't work for me; I live in Quartzsite, AZ, and NO-ONE lives near here. I have to get a relationship going online, and hope that someday I'll find someone close enough that we have maybe meet half-way. And yet, I know a couple I met at karaoke who met on MySpace--him from Oklahoma, her from Oregon. He drove to meet her, and then even moved to Oregon and they got married. Hope springs eternal, eh?
