Photos and names used by scammers in romance scams
Fake online dating sites, scammers create profiles using fake names and fake images in order to make contact with potential victims. In general, they “borrow” photos of a handsome man or a beautiful woman to naturally be more successful in their attempts of romance scam.
We post below a table with information about the scammers you could meet on the web. You will find the photos used and the names used by scammers on online dating sites.
If you have any doubt about the person you are in contact with, whatever the dating site, please verify that their photo and name are not in the list.
Pay attention that the photos and often the names used by scammers correspond to real people. Scammers download photos of people on Facebook for example and then use them for their misdeeds.
The real person on the pictures has nothing to do with these scams and is an indirect victim. Same for the names, imagine that a scammer creates a profile on a dating website with your full name. You would probably face trouble because your name would be associated with a scam. If you have been scammed by someone called John Smith, you’re not going to retaliate against the first real John Smith you will find!
