Fake photos are usually a giveaway; when in doubt, do a reverse Google image search.If it turns out to be a model, or really anyone other than who the profile says it is, that's a scammer.
Quantity of text isn’t a great indicator, says Winchester, in part because of the growing popularity of bots.
“But the operator of the bot is collecting payments for generating downloads, without ever having to interact with the user themselves.”If someone’s going to fall for a fake profile, that’s about as innocuous a result as one can hope for.
The bigger danger comes from human interaction, where, as in those familiar scam email exchanges, the person behind the profile doesn’t want your heart; they just want your money. While the UK’s favored scammer line sounds ridiculous, the top spot in the US goes to “i am very easy going and laid back.” Okay, so it’s no Pablo Neruda.
The same rule of thumb with email scams applies to online love, though; if it seems too good to be true, it probably is.
Human nature by default has been programmed to be socially active to a certain extent.
