Are you trying to find love on an online dating site, but scared that you might run into a scammer? At Social Catfish, we care about our users and want to provide them with the tools needed to weed out the scammers. Our reverse search bar allows our users to verify dating profiles using only a tiny bit of information to make sure that the person is who they say they are.
Why Use Social Catfish to Verify Dating Profiles
Because we are living in a time where it’s easy to pretend to be someone else, it’s almost become necessary to verify someone’s identity. People are more capable of stealing someone else’s pictures and use them on their dating profile, passing off as that other person instead of themselves. Victims are more likely to believe the scammer is the person in the pictures and fall deeply in love as the scammer sweet-talks their way into their life savings.
Social Catfish lets you know the true identity of who you are talking to and also lets you know if there are no records of the person you are searching for. It is a useful resource to help you make sure you are talking to a legit person so that you are not falling in love with someone who only wants what’s in your bank account.
How to Use Social Catfish to Verify Dating Profiles
Reverse Search by Name
All you need to do is enter the first name and last name that the person claims they have. Next, you enter their country and region/state that they claim they reside in. Finally, click the search button and sign up for our social search membership if you have not done so. Your results will display within minutes!
If you see results associated with the name that matches who you are talking to, then chances are that you are talking to a real person. If you see no results associated with the name, then most likely you are talking to a scammer.
Reverse Search by Email Address
Type in the email address in the search bar of the person you’ve been talking to. Click search, and sign up for our social search membership if you don’t already have one. Your search results will pop up within a few minutes!
If results display with the name and information of the person you are talking to, chances are that you are talking to a real person. However, if results display with a different name or no results, be wary because this could be a sign that you are talking to a catfish.
Reverse Search by Phone Number
Type in the phone number of the person you are talking to in the search bar. Next, click search and sign up for our social search membership if you don’t already have one. Finally, your results should pop up within only a few minutes!
If a phone number pops up and shows that it is connected to the person you are talking to and their information, chances are you are talking to someone who is telling the truth about their identity. However, if it shows up as a VOIP number or is tied to someone else, you may need to block the catfish in your life.
Reverse Search by Social Media Username
Type in the social media username the person you are talking to uses in the search bar. Next, click search and sign up for our social search membership if you don’t already have one. Finally, watch as your results pop up within minutes!
If the social media username matches your partner’s information, then most likely your online lover is telling you the truth. If the information doesn’t match the username, there is information missing, or the username isn’t showing up, it might be time to question if your partner is telling you the truth.
Reverse Search by Image
Upload the image of your partner into the search bar. Next, click search and sign up for our image search membership if you don’t already have one. Finally, watch as your results pop up within minutes!
If the image has no other results but the ones on your partner’s profiles and verifies that they are the only ones using the images, this is usually the sign that this person is not lying. However, if there are multiple results for the same image and multiple profiles are using it with multiple names, this is a sign that you should block them.
Additional Ways to Verify Dating Profiles
- If they ask for any money or personal information, they are most likely a scammer.
- If their photo is too edited or too good to be true, they are most likely a scammer.
- Video chat with them or meet them in person to verify that they are real.
