So i was looking through my facebook notifications and noticed this one...

Looks legit right... no

Load the profile page to have a look, yeah right im sure this "chick" knows me.


Probably no point blurring the name, but i will just incase.

An easy way to check if she is for real.

Download the main profile image. Just drag it into a folder.

Load images.google.com, do an search by image. click the little camera icon in the search box.

see what happens...

So if you see a few profiles and some other websites when searching for this image, you can usually presume a fake. Unless its actually a legit person that is being ripped off. You just have to be really careful! Dont add them unless you really know them in real life!
