This website allows you to upload photographs and uses recognition technology to see if there are matches to the photo anywhere else on the internet.
Check that the profile on the dating website is consistent with what you’ve been told.
In your profile, don’t include your last name, email address, home address, phone number, place of work or any other identifying information.
If you handover these details, you could be at risk of identity theft. A fraudster will usually make the first move, and this will often come out of the blue.
Asking for money before they’ve met you is a telltale sign of a romance scammer and should set alarm bells ringing.
It’s common for romance scammers to pose as a soldier serving in the military as this gives them a good excuse as to why they can’t meet you in person. If you’re dating someone who claims to be in the military, you can offer to give them a call, organise a video chat or send them a letter as they should have a number, internet connection and mailing address.
They then get the victim to send money or hand over enough personal information to steal their identity.

And be wary if someone online, after a short time of corresponding, professes strong feelings for you and asks to chat with you privately.
Romance scammers who are just looking after your money can appear desperate if you don’t send it straight away, and their emails or calls will become more persistent, direct or even aggressive.
And if you do send money, they will just keep asking you to send more, as they will view you as an ‘easy target’.
