If any matches are provided, you can read through them carefully to see if it is a true match or just a coincidence.
Step 2: perform the same search using her email address, then her home address.
If the report presents some objective evidence of a scam, then you probably need to take it seriously and start verifying your ladys information as soon as possible. (we will refer to this person as "your lady" in our answer, for simplicity sake) Yes, it is possible that someone stole her pictures, but from our practice we can observe that if the ladys pictures are posted in a scam report, then further verification of her information tends to confirm that she is a scammer.
back to FAQs I found his/her pictures online, but under s different name. However, you should not presume her guilt right away.
If some other details match as well, there is larger chance that your lady is involved somehow after all. Is there anything else in her behavior that you feel uneasy about?
Start verifying your ladys information and biographical info, if possible. If nothing else matches your ladys information, if you checked her identity and she really exists, and there are no other troubling signs in your ladys behavior, then I would recommend continuing your correspondence, but being very observant about her behavior, in case it will start becoming more troubling in the future.
The scammers (who play both the lady and the translation agency) milk all men interested in correspondence with this lady for money for translation services for as long as possible.
Travel scams (sometimes you will see then being referred to as Visa and Tickets scams) are the most widely used.
We loosely classify RDSs into two groups: 1) Travel scams and 2) all others.
A good thing about Travel scammers is that they are very easy to detect if any .
We would recommend the same due diligence checks to detect them.
