How to Spot a Fake Match.com Profile

This post is part of a series of posts on online dating and Match.com. Check out the other posts here:

If you haven’t noticed it already, there are tons of fakes, spammers, frauds inhabiting online dating sites. Match is a little better than a free site like plentyoffish, but it still has it’s share of fakes and scammers.

Where I live, I’ll probably identify one fake out of every 30 profiles. There are a number of tip-offs for spotting a fake and after reading this post you’ll be able to identify them too.

Why are there fakes? My theory is that the online sites actually employ people to re-post old, disabled accounts in order to balance out the male-to-female ratio. The ratio is already skewed against men, but these fakes give off the impression that there are a few more fish in the sea. I don’t have proof, but if you do a google search on “fake match.com profiles” you’ll see a TON of consumer complaints. Where there’s smoke, there’s fire. Some fakes are spammers, and these folks are trying to induce you to send them a real email address. Others are scammers who will try to extract money from you after you contact them. Avoid all of these completely if you suspect a fake.

Most damning though, and this is conjecture, is that an online site employee would send you a wink or email from a fake account to get you to renew your subscription. I’ve often received what I felt like were fake flirtations when I didn’t have a lot of activity going on with my account.

Let’s dive in. Here’s how to spot a fake. I’ll use a match.com profile I found recently as an example…

Okay, the first and biggest tip-off is that the fake doesn’t have any additional pictures. Rarely will a woman post only one picture. Even if she creates a new profile, she’ll usually upload at least 3-4 pictures. I’ve actually seen fakes with 2-3 pictures before, but these are infrequent. This is the first tip-off but in itself doesn’t guarantee a fake profile. Let’s keep going.

Tip-off number two. The fake has no “In my own words” section! Nada, zilch. Why? Because whoever is posting these are too lazy to actually fill out the profile. When I see this combined with only 1 picture, I’m 99% certain the profile is fake.

Number three. Note the bad writing in the “About me” paragraph. Notice it’s short, generic, and poorly written. Big tip-off there. Watch for a lack of specifics. Check out the very last line: “I hope Match you…” Bad english is the best tip-off because most scammers are non-English speakers.

My favorite part of the whole fake profile is the “About my date” section. Notice the scammer posted a broad height range (5′ to 7′), which is unrealistic. Real women are obsessive about height ranges and they sure as heck aren’t going to list 5’0″ as the minimum. Most chicks list around the 5’8″ to 6’4″ range, with the really hot chicks shifting towards the six-footers as a minimum. If you’re interested in reading about an awesome match.com experiment one dude performed as it pertains to height and looks, see here.

Also, real people usually fill out the education, job, and income fields.

So there you go, a handful of tip-offs to separate wheat from chaff. Fake profiles are annoying but I don’t let it prevent me from using Match.com. All online services have them and it’s like any other form of dating. There’s a game to be played and the game has pitfalls.

If you root out a fake, use the Report A Concern  feature on the right hand side of the profile to notify the Match.com customer service team. This will help to keep the overall community clean.

Have you ever encountered a fake profile or scammer on Match.com? Let me know your experience in the comments below.

    Gary Anthonidis contacted me on RSVP and wooed me, and was so romantic and told me I would never have to work again.Then Mum got sick and died, found a painting he never knew existed, got stuck at KL airport customs the night he was meant to be coming to WA, asked for $20,000, for taxed for painting, then $10,000 as he managed to get some out on his Amex at the ATM for Gods sake, then it came down to $5000 as the girl holding him in custody came up with $5000 and was coming back to WA with him, and he was going to give her $20,000 in return. Two days later, I got a phone call saying he had been released on bail, and a business associate was going to put $20,000 in my account and wanted my bank details so he could access it. I declined. I forgot to tell you about the fake cheque for $250,000 from a company called Raytheon in London. DO NOT HAVE ANYTHING TO DO WITH THESE PEOPLE. THERE ARE A COUPLE OF THEM INVOLVED, SO DON’T BE DRAWN INTO THE CRAP. He wanted me to sell my car to get him some money. Not going to happen.

    I have been scammed out of $15K+ by a low class, low life scammer I met on Match.com. I posted my profile on 2/20/11 and met a guy who said his name was Cole Mahone who was from the Ipswith, London and a Marine Engineer. He claimed he was a widower and had a 12 year old daughter. Three weeks into corresponding with him he told me he had to travel to Nigeria for busiess. That is when all hell broke loose. I had just ended a tumultous, 3 year relationship that had robbed me of my self confidence, self-esteem and I wanted so much to believe that he was the warm, compassionate, caring person he said he was. He called me the day he arrived in Nigeria and told me that customs kept the money he came into the country with and if I could send him money to “temporarily” help him and his daughter out he would pay me back ten fold.

    This continued for 3 months and he had one story after another and I was stupid enough to believe in him and when all was said and done I am out $15K. I am about to lose my home, my car…everything. I committed financial suicide for this man and I am so humiliated and distraught over this that I feel like I have no purpose or reason to live anymore.

    I called Match to report him, provided them with his profile name, etc. and they promised to keep in touch and follow-up with me and they never did. When I finally did talk to someone they just laughed at me and hung up the phone.

    Match.com and their employees are a bunch of unconsionable, disrespectful, heartless people who don’t care about people, just the money. I wish I had done my research. It’s too late for me now. I have no recourse and they know it. My story is just one of many and I truly believe most of the profiles on their site…and all other dating sites are fake, con artists.

    My biggest regret in life was ever joining their site. I would never have met a scam artist like Cole is it weren’t for them.

  • G Anthonidis is a FAKE

    Please check out this weebly website:

    http://garyanthonidisisascamartist.weebly.com

    which is Gary Anthonidis is a SCAM ARTIST on a free website for websites.

    The pics and profile are likely using a match dot com past customer profile or have been poached off of FB. As for the gentleman and family in the pics, they are likely unaware that their images are being used in a Scam Ring. I am curious if these images are Cole Mahone…..as the story is almost the same as the BS fed off by Gary Anthonidis.

    I can only hope that we can expose this crook and prevent anyone else from falling prey to his lies.

  • Hunter

    It looks like the more and more you search Match.com on google you are finding that there are many complaints about Match.com being a scam with many “posing” members from oversea.

    As there are many Legit member accounts on this dating site, Im sure there is equally as many fraud accounts that will try and scam member who are looking for true love.

    Just looking at how many complaints filed about Match.com “posers” I personally wouldn’t use Match.com

  • Scratching_My_Head

    While I do sympathize with the scam victims and I don’t mean to offend anyone, shouldn’t common sense tell us that most of these profiles sporting “Mr./Ms. Perfect” are too good to be true?

    I just want to point out that a common theme among women who got tricked by scammers is that they ONLY choose to interact with those who post up fake and handsome GQ pics with perfect profile stats but wouldn’t give any chance to regular guys who exist in real life, and then they conclude that “no real men online” exist.

    Example of “regular guy” is the poster who claimed to be an average guy who sent out hundreds of emails w/o getting any response. This logic seems to be the prevailing mentality among many women on online dating sites and it is troubling. Don’t they realize they are living in a fantasy world?

  • Jennifer

    I was conned by a guy saying he was in the Phillipines. I googled his email address and another gal had also been approached by him. I stopped the communication and he got angry and – oh well. I didn’t send any money. Duh.
    I agree with the broken English communication. If someone makes over $150,000 and cannot speak English, I am not sure he is legit. I am communicating with someone now and I think he is also a fraud.
    I am getting frustrated for all of us who just want to meet a nice guy. Sigh.

  • WatchOutForMonsterRat

    just wanted to warn people about:

    montserrat lawrence “mooolaw@hotmail.com” / alethia echaniz “echanizalethia@hotmail.com”
    possibly fake family members include Diego Lawrence and Camilo Lawrence.

    DO NOT SEND HER MONEY!

    she may say: “she got mugged and the money you sent her for a webcam was stolen” “she has blood cancer” “she didn’t want to video skype with you because she didn’t want you to see how sick she was” “her brother or cousin is in trouble with people over drugs and they threatened them in a parking lot” “she tried to cut herself and almost died because you online broke up with her” “she’s actually not montserrat, she’s really alethia who was pretending to be montserrat because she just wanted to know what it was like to feel pretty” etc etc etc.

    these scams happen a lot. run away screaming! or if not at least — two way video skype is your friend !!

  • Mr. Bitterly Looking

    Well, I’ve only started on Match but can corroborate the tipoffs about the fake profiles.

    Then again, I found this part fascinating: “Real chicks are obsessively selective about height ranges and they sure as heck aren’t going to list 5’0? as the minimum. Most chicks will look in the 5’8? to 6’3? range, with the really hot chicks shifting towards the six-footers as a minimum. Don’t be shocked, but height is one of THE top criterion for females online.”

    Well, that puts to the lie that women are not just interested in looks. I’m 5′ 9″ and didn’t consider myself lacking in physical appearance (not a stud, but you know, not awful). I’m college-educated, make a decent salary. I guess the only possible stigma is that I’m recently divorced. But so are a lot of the women, and they get tons of email, I’m sure.

    But this article, combining the analysis of fake profiles with the details of what women look for, explains why getting into Match has been a little depressing. I have sent out 50+ emails, with at least half trying to mention something I have in common with her, not focusing too much on her looks, etc. I have received about 10 replies — with about 8 or 9 bogus.

    My conclusion? Match is a good petri dish to conduct these social experiments, and they prove what most men already know — women are just better at masking the physical and superficial qualities that they use to judge men. They couch their language in terms of “dependable” (rich or physically strong), “adventurous” (can afford travel), or just plain tall, dark, and handsome. I guess we men wouldn’t complain so much if we got as many replies as the women did. I know I wouldn’t.

    Good luck out there.

  • Elizabeth

    I am a woman and I’ve been on Match for about a week. I’d say I’m getting about 50% real and 50% fake “winks” and emails. The fakes are pretty easy to spot. #1, they’re good looking. All the real ones are average to homely. #2, they’re either widowers or never been married. I guess when crafting a tempting lure for women they figure that we don’t want a guy who had a failed marriage. #3 they’re religious and talk about God in their profile. #4 they aren’t selective about the physical stats or ages of the women they seek. That’s a big one. Real men are VERY picky about age and size, particularly if they’re good-looking men. #5 they use very romantic, flowery language in their profile and/or email, with terms like “love at first sight” thrown around. And they usually make lots of money.

    So I guess the scammers think the best way to reel in a woman is with looks, money, piety, sympathy and the promise of love. Men of course can be much more easily caught – a pretty picture will do it. They have to work a lot harder for the women.

    So who are the fakes? I assume the ones that want to get my private email address back right away are not Match.com plants but rather money scams, but I really think there are plenty that come from Match corporate just to keep the ball rolling and keep the money coming in. I’ll be interested to see in 3 months, right before my membership expires, if I start getting a flurry of winks and emails like a lot of other members have reported. I took that test about what I’m attracted to “so that we can use the information to send you better matches” and I assume the fakes are categorized and I get the types that I showed a preference for.

    Buyer beware, indeed.

  • Elizabeth

    Yeah, try being a woman that’s not “slim/slender” or “athletic and toned”. Believe me, it’s no worse than being a short man.

    Btw, my height minimum in my preferences starts at 5’8″, which is 1″ taller than me. What are the size maximums in your preferences?

  • Jesse

    Been on Match for about 6 months. Met one real girl on there (actually met in real life). She was going through divorce. Every other communication I’ve had has been like mentioned above. Either no response (I’d honestly rather be rejected than ignored), or if someone is interested, as soon as you give them your real email address, the broken-english kicks in.

    Also, a lot of the ‘daily matches’ that I get seem to have not been active on the site in 3+ weeks, as though that’s some criteria I’m specifically looking for. Aside from being divorced, I don’t think I’m the most repulsive person on the site. (I don’t know, maybe I am…) I’m 31 years old, tall, slim, making 75K. I honestly expected it to be a little easier. I figured I’d have to deal with at least one shallow girl interested in me for my income. But not even that has happened.

    I’ve had better luck meeting girls on CraigsList, which is just wrong.

    Is there a dating site that is pay-only (no free limited-access memberships)?

  • Noelle

    I have been on Match.com for almost a month and have been corresponding with a man named William E Mayo. He claims to be a widower and has a 8 year old daughter. He is a agricultural scientist and has a private client in Lagos, Nigeria. We have been chatting for about 24 days and everything was going well. Supposedly his daughter fell ill and contracted malaria and was in the hospital. Something just did not add up. He was gorgeous,dark hair beautiful smile, looked like a model. I started getting suspicious when I went on Match and I couldn’t pull up his profile.Next I find he has 4 profiles.I looked up people in Chiefland, Fl. and there was a married man with that name who was 56. I did a reverse email and it says it is coming from Sunnyvale, CA. It is such a shame that people are so dishonest. He sounded to good to be true. Next he finally came up with a story that he need $555 to complete his work so that he can leave Nigeria and that he will pay me back this weekend when he gets home. I told him I did not have the money, and he got upset and said goodbye abruptly. I was offended and wrote him a letter. The next night he comes back and says that its ok and ask how much I could help him, because he is short because of Dale’s hospital bill and he has no insurance on her. I told I would help, but I am not going to.
    Sent him another email of my concerns about the fraud disclaimer on Match.com and he fits the profile of all odf the warnings. I wonder if he will respond.

  • Justin

    If you have been scammed. Hire a private investigator, it worked for me and the motherf**** is rotting in a jail in Ghana right now. Although it cost me a fortune but it was worth it at the end. There are highly skilled private investigators in cape town.. Look for one. Let them all rot in african jails

  • Rosemary

    Amen about the grammar and geographical changes. One person tried to convince me that his primary language was English and he had a PhD from Oxford. Of course he could not write a complete sentence so I asked if Oxford was now awarding degrees for theses written in gibberish! His and other player’s favorite phrase was “talk to you soonest”. I’ve turned in these profiles but to no avail.

  • jennifer

    well, Michael, I don’t know if women are fake just because they disappear when you suggest chatting on the phone or meeting … I do that when I feel that the man is pushing things too quickly, or I am really not interested. For example, people will email me with short messages such as “how u doing” I’m not going to take this seriously. If they continue with the short messages, I will stop writing back…

  • jennifer

    i am using okcupid, but you know, it was bought by Match. So happy for you meeting your husband there.

  • Michele

    Look out for another scammer on Match calling himself Mike Duffy from Sweden widower one child lives in Phila interior designer ALL FAKE. will hit your up for money.. tells you he is in love with you right away.. same story..

  • Jun Garcia

    Nigeria is the scam center of the Universe.
    I get bleeding heart request daily from Nigeria – reject anything and everything from that black hole.

  • Mary

    I was Ms Popularity for awhile then I realized that they only wanted to commuicate through online chat. They don’t have real jobs, two told me that they were from Italy and worked as a jeweler and broker. One was from Portgual. They all say that they were raised overseas,but had one American parent. They listed their income as 150+ Their profiles are letter perfect, but their English is broken. One of them ask me online if I drove. I told him “No that I rode my horse to work” and his relply was “That’s nice”. I think they may realize that I am on to them. Tonight they sent me an email from a women from Canada maybe by mistake or maybe or purpose. They also do not view your profile before talking to you. Frequently they have more than one profile. Also when you go back to check their profile, its gone. Perhaps match.com has pulled their profile or themselves have pulled it.

    I had recently made contact with a woman whose schedule was too busy to meet up one week then never heard from her again. Then several days later another random person viewed my file so I looked them up. I had seen the pictures before so thought I’d see if we’d made any contact in the past. What I found was the emails I had sent to the other person. Their names were different on the profile, but the email history was there. I had referenced their appearance, which had dimples yet the new profile the person had no dimples. I had also used an abreviated version of their account email EA, yet the new profile the name was completely different. I’m going to see about getting my money back. WHAT A SCAM

  • Mel

    Thank you tons for posting this. I have something strange going g on. I am determined to figure it out. This guys acts so romantic. Im going to google his emails now because all other searches have left me with no info and im pretty good at finding out what I need to . This guys claims he is in cairo even emailed me a flight itinerary showing he was coming back then said he had to cancel his flight because custom was holding his goods and he needs to come up with the money in time or they will seize his goods. :/I all I said was oh sorry for your trouble. Anyway here I go to search emails.

    You certainly don’t have to be an IDIOT to fall for some guy’s sweet talk, if you are a lonely widow, looking for companionship. It never entered my mind that people would falsify their information for illegal purposes. Just call me Pollyanna!

    Sounds like the same guy (from Eastpointe, Michigan), working for an oil company in Lagos, Nigeria who had a huge cheque in payment for the work he had done, but couldn’t cash it in Nigeria. Wanted money for airfare to get back to the States. He said he was Robert Lewis, an American, but asked that the money be sent to a Nigerian sounding name via Western Union. After I had lost $3,500. Cdn., I finally got smart, reported him to match.com and his account was cancelled — but two weeks later there he was again, showing an address in Georgia, looking for some other patsy. I reported that to match.com, account cancelled, and then he showed up a third time! Do they not screen the supposed personal data — they could see he said the same thing THREE times!
