is one that can tell you if the person is who she says she is, and if she has a criminal history.
Read That Profile Another way to spot a fake is to really check out their profile.
Unless the online dating site is going to go to the extra effort of meeting the single in person, doing a background check, and taking their online profile pictures for them (like Findthe It Factor.com, a personalized dating service), then “verified” means nothing more than the faker has access to a credit card.
There are services that can do background checks for you, if you feel the person is worth looking into further.
A Singles’ Dating Convention member sent this to me: “I’ve recently joined a different singles’ site and am running into the same issue I’ve had with the previous ones I’ve been involved in.
It seems that somehow my profile targets only those that are looking for money, or are spam. For example, the other night I got a message from a lady on Plenty Of and responded to her and then she quickly responded giving me her Yahoo screen name to IM her.
Though, recently, I learned that averages 10 percent paid profiles and 90 percent free profiles.
The unfortunate truth is that the paid singles don’t know who is free and who is not.
If a lot of their profile says, “ask me,” or says very little at all, it’s probably a fake.
It’s not as simple as some online dating services claim it is.
Singles, both men and women, are under attack from the fakes.
Verified, Schmerified Beware of the “verified” profiles that some sites tout.
Even some of the more clever fake profiles can get “verified” by using a friend’s credit card.

You want to avoid using your actual name unless you combine it with a descriptive quality. If you want to use numbers, then make them relevant to who you are or who you want to meet.
