Spot a fake

May 22 2024

Well, I've been here on the Pie for a month now as a paid member. I'm wondering if the good people here can give me any advice on spotting a BS profile besides the obvious of being verified?

    Ok. Look for ultra grainy pics. Or seemingly ultra pro pics.

    Also look for things in the background. Unusual vehicles. Power points that aren’t Australian. Pics that have been reversed.

    In my experience fake profiles tend to be around 27 years old, 5’6” and often are looking for ALL genders and ALL ages.

    When you get to private albums, look for freckles that tend to move or disappear.

    Fakes also tend to have a photo for every occasion ‘hey chat later I need a shower’ ‘oh I just got out’ (sends pic of wet hair).

    Lots of selfies tend to appear to be from the passenger seat of a car. Why?

    Also if they go hard and heavy with ultra raunchy or very sexual photos quickly…. Yeah girls likely don’t do that.

    Best of luck.

    If the pictures don't seem like they've been taken from a camera or are grainy do a google lens check. Easiest way to spot a fake if it comes up with an exact match.

    That’s pretty much the acid test.

    Filter out unverified and sex workers and you’ll have the right pool to approach.

    We often do reverse image searches on profile photos - to see if they have been “stolen” off the internet.

    Then look for things like light switches & power outlets that might not be the Australian ones.

    Then the wording. If it’s a female / couples profile that has a lot of sexually explicit wording, it generally tends to be a thirsty male … but that’s our experience.

    The other way is to go to events and meet people in person. You have nice profile and pics and seem social enough so you would probably do well. I also have some female friends who I team up with to go to couples events, so in time you may find FWB like that.

    I reckon a good indicator is weird grammar in a bio. I got one yesterday that sent the spider senses tingling

    Another thing I’ve noticed about AI images is that it seems to have a hard time with hands and fingers, so missing/extra digits or weird fingers are a flag. Unless of course the people are real and have had a horrible work accident….Sorry I reported you if that’s the case 🫣

    So, do you get any that are paid but not verified?

    Usually few photos or very poor quality or overly good quality photos. Little to not a lot in their profile but just enough to be a hook. As a woman, my spidey sensors are on point and I know they are fake almost instantly. I've reported many many profiles as fake and had them removed.

    Another good way, to sort the fakes from the genuine, is to appear on webcam.

    I few people have, in the past, questioned whether we are genuine or not.

    Imagine their surprise in the chatroom on Friday & Saturday night this past week, when I (Mrs Flirty) appeared on webcam, from the bath, and sang a few songs to the chatters in the chatroom 😂

    The whispers / PM’s were coming in “fast & furious” from the wannabe directors.

    It’s like “whack a mole”. They just keep popping up.
    I love the ones that keep changing their profile names and locations, just to keep the boys guessing.

    There are 2 men I look for on any woman’s profile “friends list” (if she has one), and if either of these 2 guys appear on it then it’s an instant no from me.
    It doesn’t matter if the woman isn’t actually a fake, but if she’s so obviously silly to add these blokes then I simply cannot be bothered.

    Bad or almost too good to be true pics and disjointed english I guess, never experienced as a woman but could imagine men get sucked into these fake profiles promising it all...and probably asking for money
