    ...potentially. Not that it matters, but if you just hold your mouse over someone's pic for a second or 2, the filename pops up. Generally, if the filename is a bunch of random letters, something along the lines of 21437_903pkfi9.g3, rather than IMG387.jpg, boobies.wmv, or similar, it's a pretty safe bet that the picture was copied from the web and pasted onto the person's computer, and then onto here. Maybe this will help out some of the retards around here...probly not though

    This is the pattern that Facebook uses. It always starts with a lower case 'n' followed by about sixteen numbers.

    What if they steal the pic of the net and then rename it themselves? I think the best way to catch an imposter is to play along with them until u get their yahoo or msn and ask for more pics.. by this stage they either come up with a million excuses why they've only got 3.. and then u can start to pick holes in their fake indentity either by their randomly named email address or their inability to maintain a decent conversation after u've put them on the spot.. common signs include words no 'female' would think of using and erratic and rash behaivoir..thus not speaking to u again.. :nutkick:

    "I'm just a woman and don't understand how to use my webcam thingy. I only have three pictures because I don't know how to put new ones on my computer. How dare you imply that I'm a man. I'm so insulted that I'm never going to speak to you again!"

    You mean that? I've heard it before... many times.

    Personally, I find that "females" tend to use overly-feminine names and act dumb. ie:

    CandyGurl: Hi, I'm Britney and my widdle cunny is sooooo wet

    Or they use words that few women would ever use, ie:

    PowerSlut: Hi, I need a massive cock to fuck my cunt deep until I bleed.

    Well, yes, naturally there will be people who know this. But if you look in the women's gallery, you'd be surprised at how many don't

    If they decide to call you, do a reverse phone number check and see what you find out.

    Read what they write in their posts, they tend to reveal more than they think they do.

    If it doesn't add up, get out fast and protect yourself.

    Good one!

    He swears his cock is 9, 10, 11, 12... inches long, but has no pics or pictures from questionable angles, clearly photoshopped, or worse, of someone else that is in porn or a member of LPSG that he claims stole his pictures from somewhere else.

    His screen name includes the numbers 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15.

    His screen name includes words like horse, beer can, feet, or inches.

    He wants to see what you look like, but when it comes time to trade pics, he has to "find one" because he doesn't have a cell with a camera, digital camera, or web camera, etc.

    Whenever you log in to LPSG or IM, he's on. Not necessarily proof he is fake, but shows he doesn't have shit else to do and can use that free time to make up lies.

    Is extremely wealthy - owns an island or plane, family is wealthy and/or somehow famous, lives somewhere like Bel Air, Beverly Hills, Hamptons, Tahiti, etc.

    He "just broke up with his girlfriend" or wife (1. I don't care 2. You're probably lying)

    You are in the same city, so he claims, and chat fairly regularly, but he has no desire to meet.

    PM'd a year ago, forgot you blew him off, then PMs again (same screen name!) but with completely different details (age, race, sex, size)

    Not to mention the ever popular "I'm not going to post any new/validation pics just to prove something to you, asshole". It's all a monsterous lie.

    you can always use tineye if the pic's naming structure looks suspicious.

    i am always wary of the ones that claim 10 inches and above. that's just near mathematically impossible.

    i have actually been sent pics by a guy with a dildo stuffed in his shorts (clearly), and by another guy who was using pictures from another guy's profile (a popular member here). i just try to be aware and not too trusting.

    Mule is entirely believable. Horse would be an unrealistic exaggeration. :biggrin1:

    Thing is, the username is based on the funniest reaction I have received, which was "My God, you're hung like an Army mule!"

    Apparently, penis size was a criterion for pack animals to be accepted into the military.

    Oh, and I totally agree about the monsterous behavior that you referenced earlier.

    TinEye Reverse Image Search
    You browse for a picture from your hard drive or give it a URL and it goes out and searchs the web for other instances of the same pic. It doesn't have a the biggest database, but it's fun and I've found a couple of fakers using it.

    oh yeah what vince said.

    :D

    there was a guy here who posted a few times then was banned, he was a bit of a troll. anyway before he was banned he contacted me through yahoo IM, he was a wee bit wonky so i blocked him. then about 2 weeks later he came back as a girl (on yahoo), and he gave the same info (locale, student, same major, same age...was obvious). when he sent me pictures, i decided to plug them into tineye (he didnt bother re-naming them) -- i found them on 8 other sites. it's a good resource, pretty much, though as vince said the database isn't as large as it could be.
