Tineye is Addictive

18 posts in this topic

OK, I already posted 3x in a row in the other thread ... all I can say is, thanks for introducing me to this tool (tineye.com)!

Went to blonde.escorts London, and in the first two lines of WGs alone, that would be 12 listings, tineye identified Carly Heart, Elizangela, and Vanessa as fakes -- a 25% fakery rate.

Hmmm, let's click on the Brunettes section of the site. Valentina is first up, I'm not sure I totally buy her but it doesn't look like an obviously stolen image. Tineye agrees. Barbara is next. Italian 21 year old DD, a "student," she loves music, theater, and fine wines. Her pics look like they were swiped from Playboy. Tineye? Hey, look at that, Tineye found that very same picture as another site, and it has a little rabbit head on the corner. Fancy that.

I can't believe I was once dumb enough to call blonde escorts for a punt. :)

i have reported several profiles on @w in the past and they have been removed. I don't use agencies but imagine they are no better.

It would be nice to think that a sustained campaign of reporting false pics might have an effect but, unfortunately, there are too many fools out there who will be taken in. i cannot understand how anyone can be conned by a blatantly 'lifted' pic. There is a very, very attractive girl on @w who has pics apparently taken in a mirror with her mobile - I'm cynical enough to think it might be a double bluff.

Is Tineye easy to use? Do you just paste the escort page Into Tineye?

It's very easy to use. You need to register with an email address and then you can check either by uploading the picture from your own computer or entering the url.

It's also a very useful tool for escorts to check if someone has nicked their photos.

I don't think you need to register - do you?

Right click the photo to check and choose Copy Image URL (or similar), go to the tineye homepage and paste in the link you copied. Job done.

You're quite right, apologies.

For some reason I did register when I joined, although it's not a requirement.

I've just realised (by accident) that you can copy the link of the page rather than the photo and it will scan for all the images then you can click through to each one. That's pretty cool as it saves loads of time when checking multiple images.

Here's an example against an agency was suspect of a day or two ago. There a a few suspect ladies there, and there's a cracking picture of Misa Campo in the middle.

I like this game.

Yeah, I reported a couple of fakes to the other site last night and they were removed. Cheekily, one of them has already put her profile back up, this time with only one picture, which doesn't return any results in TinyEye. It's a shame, because the girl actually sounds pretty decent (she even replied to an email I sent her a few months back, and not a one-liner either), but the fact remains that she's duping people. I'm going to keep an eye on her profile...

The easiest way is to install the Firefox or Explorer plugin from the tineye website.

Then all you have to do is right click on the picture and select Tineye.

Carol and Caroline on alphababes.com both failed the Tineye test. So did Angela, it appears ... but then I saw something even odder, above her name, on the very damned alphababes site itself, are the large words "Not Recommended."

This is on the agency's own site, I mean I guess I appreciate the tip but what the hell?

All three of the girls at the bottom of the alphababes website are listed as not recommended. I can only assume that they pissed them off and have refused to take their photos down in the hope that they might be recognized by somebody in their personal life.

That most Alphababes didn't have matches on Tineye is probably due more to the limitations of Tineye's database (young and still growing), than to semblances and vestiges of honesty in those who run Alphababes.

You know, in the States legal businesses can't fib so blatantly in advertisements, because they get shut down by the Better Business Bureau. An escort agency is legal in the U.K., no?
