Are fakes all around?

The word 'FAKE' is used frequently, especially coupled with feelings of frustration and disappointment. Is there a specific set of criterion that defines someone/a profile as being FAKE?
Profile is blank: no pic, no description, few details, hidden friend network, etc.
Profile with a generic images, 'stolen' pics & few details otherwise
Profile filled with 'unrealistic/elaborate' details, claims and/or demands
Profiles that are Unavailable for long periods of time
Female or Couple profiles that 'present' as MALE only
Person with multiple profiles that hold similar info/vibe that contact you in close succession using the different profiles
Profiles who mainly request pics, personal & contact info for scamming, etc
All of the above

Im standard and cant view profiles. I talk. email and text with a person before deciding to meet. People drop out of that process for their own reasons, perhaps some are fake....i wouldnt know. The ones i have met have all been real. Ive been lucky ~~

Broken English, looking for love and loyal faithful man in their profile is a dead give away for me. Some are good with their approach but as soon as they talk they ask to email them. Fake. I don't necessarily think a profile with no picture is a fake one. I went a while without a picture. Some people just don't want to put one up. These are just my opinions though.

Just a week ago I received notice that a guy and his wife wanted me to service her because she liked my cock. Making a long story short... he wanted to suck me off and the wife was no part of it at all. Talk about lunch bag let down. Fake as fuck.

Some are fakes and some scammers. Besides those to me a fake is a person who has no intention of meeting anybody. To some a person is a fake for no other reason then one of the following reasons. No picture. Being told to read my profile. Not being interested in whoever. Am sure others have other opinions of what they believe is a fake. Some valid. Some like like the 3 examples I gave.

This is the inter/web/nets the anonymity allows for "fakes" however . . . a lot of guys get rejected which becomes frustration and disappointment and the whines of fake fake fake.

When the going gets weird, the weird turn pro.

The only thing we have to fear is fear itself.

I feel out of the ones you listed, certainly all of them could be regarded as fake. But for me, 3 on your list scream fake.

1. I have found couples profiles that present only the male at the time, are generally fake. Although, I've chatted with a couple of couples profiles where it is usually the male who does the shopping as it were, and I know these two have a significant other. But many couples who contact me, who are just the male present, I feel is just a male profile, so I deem those ones as fake.

2. Profiles with a generic images, 'stolen' pics & few details otherwise, I feel are definitely fake.

3. Profiles who mainly request pics, personal & contact info for scamming, etc...fake.

Blank, pictureless profiles are not necessarily fake. But I feel some of them are, especially when they ask for a face photo, when clearly, I have body photos on my profile. I know standards cannot access them, and it's generally the standards who ask for the face photo. Which, I find ironic, seeing they have no photos on their profiles. When I tell such people I will send a face photo after you send me a clear, recent, unobstructed face photo of himself first, and they say, nah, I'm good, or they stall, or say I'm not a picture guy....then I know they are pic collectors, fake, or hiding something. Even some profiles that show only dick pics, or body pics, and you ask for a recent face photo, I get the...I'm not really a pic guy...they are hiding something, imo.

I don't know about the fakes but most of the scammers flirt with you and only have one picture. They want to contact by email. Who does that anymore.
Thare are a lot of old profiles on here that have not been active for years.
Since they took away last vist last online information we do not have a clue if they are active or not. I suspect up to 80 90 percent of profiles were not active in the last year.

For me, a "fake" profile is one that is created by the site to artificially increase numbers. Most of those are female and aimed at men so it looks like women are looking, flirting, hot listing, etc. and the guy will then buy a membership.

What someone else might call fake - I call a scammer or a liar. There are LOTS of those.

Profile filled with 'unrealistic/elaborate' details, claims and/or demands.

Claims or demands, perhaps in the eye of the beholder, but not unrealistic/elaborate details . This can be an exception of a normal person's profile. Some men and women who have been here for a while also have elaborate detailed info in their profiles. They feel that by being very specific in what and whom they're seeking on the site will reduce the number of incompatible matches and unwanted emails. What one person might list as a preference may seem "unrealistic" to some; again, all in the eye of the beholder.

Another example: some people who list themselves as "single" may actually have someone who doesn't know that their partner is looking here. "Single" to some may mean "not married" (or even "separated"), as opposed to "unattached". There's a fine line between, if you're really going to cut threads, as everyone will have different definitions.

Trust your instincts, but keep your guard up. When in doubt, ask for clarification. If it sounds "too good to be true", chances are that it is.

Are fakes all around? Yes, and some are really good at disguising themselves. But there also are good and true people on here who might be just a bit paranoid, because they have been scammed one too many times in the past. Sometimes it take a little patience and investigative work to find the real ones.

This complaint never seems to end.It is
really starting to sound a lot like the one
waged by guys about never getting responses.

Due diligence is the key!

Using more than all the road!

Like someone said, the "God fearing, looking for the love of my life" mantra is a common giveaway for the predatory scammer

And of course, this being the internet, something too good to be true is usually such

To me, fake profiles are ones which are designed to trick, scam or defraud other users.
Usually they are profiles operated by men in the third world (e.g. Nigeria, Ivory Coast). Typically, they are lining up some sort of sting, to send them money so that they can supposedly travel to meet you, or to obtain their supposed inheritance, or get them out of a country where their business trip has gone wrong, i.e. all the usual scams.
One way to spot fake profiles is to run a Google Image Search on the profile pictures, see my blog post "Fake or Fraudulent profiles". It's amusing to find the real owners of the photos! A couple of the people whom I've caught out that way then went on to claim to be the pornstar concerned, now reformed!
Happy fraud hunting, and Good luck,

There are many reasons to create a fake profile, not only scams or frauds, some people are just starving for atenttion but at the same time have a very low self steem

Over the years that i have been on Fbookhookups.com (cancelled and returned) i have had my share of fakes and scams pulled on me. After chatting for days and picture exchange we set up to meet at peet's coffee, well i sat for 1 hour waiting for her to show up but she never made it. This has happened many times. Now i have met a few that worked out so i can say their are REAL profiles here but you still need to be leery of some profiles.. I'm just saying.

YES, one on the many reasons I don't have GOLD anymore, removing last visit, last on-line. The company does not want to remove old/inactive profiles because there member numbers would be shit. this site is not what it was years ago!
