    I was on skout to make new friends and perhaps a relationship.

    Started talking to this girl, we got on very well and she seemed into me. Her English isn't too great but I didn't mind. After 2 days of talking( I know I know) we decided to meet up because we lived fairly close...however she didn't turn up.

    She made an apology and said she was late coming home from work due to a spot check at her nursing home which was a surprise spot check.

    I got a bit suspicious but nonetheless agreed to see her tomorrow. However just minutes ago, I decided to see if her photos were real or not. I uploaded one of her photos onto a site called tineye and all her photos on her skout profile were on google images plus another website.

    Really annoyed but should have seen it coming, as if a girl would be that interesting to meet up with me.

    However before we met up, we spoke on Skype(without cam) and her English wasn't too good too. I was convinced she was real...I don't know what to think, I don't I'll meet up 2moro.
    She hasn't replied to my message I sent 10mins ago and she normally replies quick.

    She's fake right?

    She gave me her sister Facebook because she uses her sisters Facebook. She only had 2 friends, including me.

    About 99.9 recurring % sure she's fake, sorry. Her pictures are on Google and she backed out of a meet up.

    Do you do this?
    1) right click on the picture
    2) select "copy image location"
    3) paste into Google
    4) should say "cannot find the document, search by image?" And click the hyperlink

    No I just uploaded her pic onto a website which scans for the pics to see if it's been uploaded anywhere online.
    Damn.

    Oh ok, yeah, she's fake. Unless she does hair style modelling or whatever that site was.

    I had this problem once and actually ended up meeting a real girl who'd had her pictures scattered online everywhere

    true story

    but yeah you'll probably get taken into a van and harvested for your organs if you meet her.

    I'm too naive

    Fake, move on mate. Sucks.

    Btw, you can also use Google for reverse image searches (go on Google Images and click on the camera icon in the search bar).

    Yeah did more research and she is definitely fake. Removed her as a friend on fb and skout, reported her but nothing will probably be done.!
