How to Spot Fake Online Personalities on the Internet for FREE: Google Reverse Image Search

It is very easy to contact me. Just send me a LinkedIn or Facebook contact request, and I will usually accept you as a new connection.

As a consequence, I often receive contact requests that are somehow fishy.

I don´t work with fishy people.

Better stay away from them.

Example

Here is one example, it was on LinkedIn.

A man named “Thomas Nixon” sent me a request to help him with a banking matter in Singapore. That is not unusual, and sometimes we can help honest people with banking matters in Singapore.

I have even written an article about that, here https://ip-lawyer-tools.com/bank-account-for-foreigners-in-singapore-how-does-that-work/

The profile picture of the said Thomas Nixon was this one:

This Is Where the Work Starts

I have used the Windows Snipping Tool for creating the above image from that LinkedIn profile.

In a side-line only: learning how to use the Windows Snipping Tool is a must for an IP lawyer.

Then I did a Google Image Reverse search. Check out this video, it takes only 3 minutes to find out how this works.

 

This man has even given a TED talk, check this out:

Result: the same and identical image has been used many times before, on the Internet, over and over again. For all sorts of purposes.

My conclusion was: don´t trust this person.

Game over for him.

Call to Action

Get familiar with the Windows Snipping Tool.

Then use Google Image Reverse Search and check out who has used your picture for promoting their own agenda.

Then contact me if you need help.
