Fake Profiles

    Years ago I found a site that people who find fake profiles of themselves go and expose the fake profile and also verify they are actually the person in the photo(s) being used.

    Does anyone know about this site? I've tried to find it again but with no luck.

    I'm not looking to report a profile, just wanted to see if this guy is in there before I ask him WTF

    (has nothing to do with any profiles here at realjock)

    My question is why would you care if a profile is fake or not in the first place?

    About two years ago a guy I had chatted a few times to informed me someone with pictures of me had hit on him.


    It was unsettling to think someone was impersonating me...

    I was just chatting a few days ago with someone on here who turned out to be a complete fake. All of his pics can be found on an Aussie gay porn website.

    He was charming, sweet, and ridiculously good looking which made me sad to find out I was the fool.

    Impersonating others is absolutely wrong.

    RED FLAGS

    ** Ridiculously hot man wants to talk to you

    *** Ridiculously hot man with One Picture in his profile wants to talk to you

    **** Ridiculously hot man with One Picture in his profile and who suspiciously looks like a porn star or a fashion model wants to talk to you

    and the Coup de gras...

    ***** Ridiculously hot man with One picture in his profile, who suspiciously looks like a porn star or a fashion model and who has one sentence in his profile wants to talk to you

    I've found it's just easier to have hard rules about anyone who's not verified. Basically, if you're unverified, you have to be able to prove who you are with a cam. If you don't have a cam, you have to be able to send me a pic text from your phone and/or show me your myspace or something that shows people know you. When someone's unable or unwilling to meet any of those criterion, there is something rotten in realjock.

    I sometimes wish there was "FAKE" button you could click on a person's profile that just smacks of 'too good to be true.' I would imagine after getting 40 or 50 of those, either the person would leave or at least new people would be able to see a big "caveat emptor" right away.

    I gotta agree, once you upload a face pic, you should have no problem getting verified.

    Any ideas Mike? icon_razz.gif

    Are you serious?

    What if they make a fake profile using photos of YOU? What if that profile depicts this person (with a picture of you) as a slutty whore who is looking for cam shows and anonymous bareback hookups? Is that enough to raise your ire?

    What if someone you struck up an online friendship with turned out to be someone completely different? You wouldn't feel a bit pissed?

    not to sound conceited; i say this only to give my perspective on the subject of identity theft: i get hit up with messages weekly by random ppl telling me of profiles that are using my pictures to misrepresent themselves, or similarly they ask if i'm in craigslist (which i'm not) and then inform me that someone's using my pix there. it was mildly, albeit creepily flattering at first, but now its just frustrating. i hate the thought of all the people out there who are being douches from behind my face.

    and i don't get it- if you're using someone's pix to conceal the reality of your own sorry hideousness so that people will talk to you online ('cause god knows they don't in real life)... what's to be gained? so many of the profiles i've found that steal pix are very explicit in their propositions for a hookup.... but it follows that when someone goes to meet them, they'll find that the person is unforgivably ugly and dishonest- not at all the person displayed in their profile. do they hope that this won't, in fact, be a deal breaker? that the relatively attractive person they've lured to them will think, 'oh... wow, well, ok... i guess i'm here anyways, i may as well follow through. could you put this bag over your head?' honestly, any clarification on this would be illuminating.

    i'm not verified ...

    i'm not fake ...

    i don't need to prove anything ...

    since i'm the real thing ...

    you decide ...

    and by the way, i don't care if you're fake or real ...

    as the saying goes ...

    truth will always prevail ...

    I'm with you Mike..I need a self esteem boost. Maybe I'll make my own fake profile and just send it around in disguise. LOL

    I figured you were purposely not following the red flags of GQ just to throw us all off! LOL
