What are we referring to here? Photos. Some scammers will flip the stolen photos they use so they’re not found by image search sites. If you’re doing an image search, try flipping it around and doing a second search. It may just show you the true identity of the person in it.

The steps we advise for blackmail/sextortion victims is based on our years of experience with scammers and from dealing with thousands of cases. We are the #1 place to come to for help, yet people still insist on ignoring what we say. Deactivating FaceBook for 2 weeks is the most important step, but the one […]
To finish off discussing the iDate conference in Las Vegas, here are a few random thoughts about the experience. Firstly, the toilets in America freaked me out to start. The water level in them is much higher than those in the UK. The first time I flushed one, I thought it was going to overflow! […]
The final day of the conference arrived, and I spent the morning jumping between shaking hands with people and chilling in my room. Being so close to the conference was a great thing. I’m not a people person, so having somewhere I could go to when things got a little too much was a godsend. […]
So the day of the conference arrives, and I’m up fairly early all things considered. My room is less than 2 minutes from the conference, so I can nip in and out as I please. It also meant I could keep the rest of the site staff updated on what was happening. One of the […]

I’m finally home from Vegas, after 24 hours of sitting in airport lounges, sitting on planes, sitting on buses and sitting in cars. Once my brain and my backside recover, I’ll post up a review of how it all went.
As I’m travelling for the next 10 days, it’s unlikely there’ll be any new blog posts until I get back. When I do post next, I’ll give you all the news from what’s been happening. Until then, stay safe.
We do all we can to help those who’ve been scammed, but without the help of the dating sites it’ll always be an uphill struggle. Hopefully in the future we can work closer with the sites in educating their members on the ways to fight the scammers. Until then, we’ll do all we can.
