4 SIGNS THAT I AM BEING CATFISHED
We live in a world where technologies that allow users to alter faces, rank #1 across app stores. Damage currently happens, reaching from funny cat-fishing with fake profiles to actual criminals showing up at the front door for a babysitting assignment. A quick look at someone’s social media profiles can not serve as a secure form of validation.
What can you do when in doubt of being Cat-fished?
Luckily technologies such as FaceCheck now-days make it easy for you to end any doubt and get a secure validation of the actual person you are communicating with.
Users can simply validate each other’s visual identity using our 5-second one-time-only request to another user’s front-facing camera.
For situations in which you doubt your conversation partner, we have listed four signs that you are being cat-fished and should ask your conversation partner for a FaceCheck.
Number 1 – The new connection turns into a relationship a bit too quickly.
If you find your conversation partner to move forward with an obvious fast pace to begin a love relationship without having even seen or met you, you are almost certainly being cat-fished and should ask for a FaceCheck.
Number 2 – Everything seems too darn beautiful to be true.
This point may appear obvious but ask yourself the two questions: Am I being sent sets of perfectly edited images by someone who has no visible errors and flawless skin down to the feet? Are their interests in music, books or film spread so broad that they could theoretically match with anyone? It is a classic case for requesting a FaceCheck and get peace of mind.
Number 3 – There are international cosmopolites and constantly en route
People travel for a living it’s common enough. However, let’s say the person of interest you met online has a “job” that causes them to travel frequently into low band-with regions. This case usually brings excuses in which a request for Skype’ing or any other video chat app cant be conducted.
Lucky for you, FaceCheck uses ultra-low data to conduct its process and the image you receive back is traveling back to you in seconds even when using an ancient 2G or older data connection as commonly found in 3rd world countries.
Number 4 – They’re stories and lingo do not fit their listed gender.
Many online dating websites have first-timers who enjoy experimenting in the networks depicting the opposite gender and try to befriend you. We agree that this can be easily detected or in some cases very hard to notice. The damage caused by it is also minimal as you are just wasting your time rather than money or your identity.
FaceCheck’s easy and un-intrusive way of verifying anyone you met online, also here ends any doubt by delivering a clear picture of the person on the opposite side of the line.
Put FaceCheck to the test with a friend or person you are currently talking to and have doubts. It is easy and requires no signup or fees to use the Safe Way To Play.
