    I see profiles that are verified but I can tell they are fake. How are they verified then?

    RJ be confusing me.

    I have seen obviously photoshopped verification pics where the paper held up is clearly fake. Firebrand used to say, if you can't see the elbows, it's likely fake. He trolled HottJoe for hours one night accusing him of being fake until he posted something new.

    You can post a pic, post an actual verification pic, then hide the pic you used to verify in privates and populate your profile with fake stolen pics afterwards.

    Exactly what Ariodante said.

    No verification system is perfect. So there's always a chance that any 'verified' RJer you're chatting with is still a fake icon_eek.gif

    The system is not perfect and fake verified profiles have won motd in the past. Each step from uploading pics, to being verified, weeds out some of the fakes.

    Speaking of fake profiles, this unverified profile had 21 votes for motd yesterday and since it is verified, that means 21 people actually voted for the guy.

    And his profile headline: A No Drama Zone ~ Looking For Honest and Real

    It also says this in his profile: "More pictures on the way. My scanner is on the blinks, but I have numerous "shots to share".

    21 of you were so gullible. The profile looks fake at first glance.

    But seriously... who has the time or even finds it enjoyable to join this site and post fake pictures. I guess I won't understand the mindset of some people.

    Having a slight background in photoshop, I know how easy it is to fake pictures. The one seen in this post is not a bad example, but a photoshop master can take it to the next level where the untrained eye can't even tell if it's fake.
    No system is perfect. Just look for signs of it being fake and if there are none, its probably real.

    The funny/sad thing is that there are a lot of guys on here that either need glasses or they know the profile is fake but are fantasizing that it's real. I've seen so many fake profiles with dozens of photo comments and testimonials. Mind boggling. icon_lol.gif

    The grand majority of fakes don't go through that much trouble, though. Only the really sad ones.

    One verified profile seems to be questionable.

    These pics go back as far as September 2011.

    Anyone ever met the guy with the profile here?

    Great. So today's MOTD is another fake profile? Because "mikeofland10" is 21, from Switzerland, and definitely likes girls. icon_confused.gif

    I think mikeofland10 probably is probably a fake profile also, but it is the oldest date that I can find pics of the guy.
