before falling hard for an online-only acquaintance, here are a few tips, to help you detect fraudulent profiles on social networkingand dating sites.
1. The perfect person is not a real person. A supermodel or retouched profile photo should raise the first red flag.
2. Be wary if the profile describes a personality that complements your own or is too good to be true. Often, imposters will create interests and activities that mirror your own in order to start a conversation.
3. Check how many friends and followers are listed in the person's network. The average Facebook user has 130 friends. An imposter will often have significantly fewer.
4. Determine whether any of your "mutual friends" have actually met your newest online acquaintance in person.
5. Peruse posted pictures and albums carefully. A real person will often have pictures with friends and family, who will have tagged and commented on photos.By contrast, imposters will often use modeling photos featuring only glamorous shots of the individual rather than group photos.
6. Don't be tricked if your friend has multiple people who vouch for him or her online. One person can easily make multiple accounts to make it appear as if there is a support network of family and friends.
7. Imposters will often try to interact with your own friends and family members to create a broader sense of familiarity and build up a broader network of trust.
8. Finally, if you've been harmed by someone who posted a fake profile, report it to site monitors and authorities. Although it may be humiliating to be duped online, authorities will be able to identify imposters and close their accounts more quickly than you working independently.
