Not sure why the MOST IMPORTANT TOOL was missing from our DIY scam detective tools!!

Google Image Search - see if a picture:

- belongs to somebody else
- is used on many profiles by different people
- is being used in scams / already scamlisted


https://www.google.com/imghp?hl=en&tab=wi" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

click on a camera icon and upload a picture either from the web or from your computer.

Yandex Image Search

Having found Google image search increasingly frustrating in not picking up postings from RS, AND not working with the Firefox/Android tablet combination, I have recently been trying Yandex image search!

It's not perfect and isn't picking up RS often, but does give some different results to both GIS and Tineye...... and I can use it with my preferred device & browser combo! :D

Another useful tool???

I normally use "name of RPO" + "romancescam", to find the topic number to merge it into.
Tineye is usually better.
But either sites scan fake profiles indiscriminately, which are dozens over dozens.
The FF add-on "Who stole my pictures" uses either image search engine (mouse right click) AND yandex, and opens all with one right mouse click, option "Open All in Tabs" :)

I´ve been using this particular modality for years. :)
