It was easy for me to sign up with a fake ID and fake location.
The better sites use geolocation and name/address verification. Geolocation is a feature that allows the website to find out in which country and city the subscribers are by IP number or other method.
It seems that you only need to pick up the newspaper or watch the news to hear about the latest financial scam and it’s something that has become an unwelcome part of modern life.
So what does this have to do with a dating site you ask?
I became interested in this subject because one of my best friends is currently being scammed and she is in such denial so I realized I needed to find proof so I could show her that indeed she is dating a scammer.
I started my research by examining the dating site itself S************ dot com. Right off the bet I noticed there was no real security.
Include the name of the person you are meeting, where you are meeting them and when you expect to be home.
I started browsing men between the ages of 55 and 75. Almost on every page that showed ten results I could detect a scammer.
After browsing just a few pages only I saw thins like seeing the same profile picture on different profiles with different names and locations. I also noticed the exact same profile description matched other profiles word for word. It said it was new but the posts were several years old.
Yet when you upload your own picture they say they will post it after verification. Then on the very bottom I noticed something inconspicuous.
About an hour’s drive along the Gardez highway south of Kabul, beyond the bustling shops, the trucks spewing diesel exhaust, and the clatter of donkey carts, there is a sharp left turn onto an unpaved road.
