  • reverse image search is your best try... but it's not reliable. if it doesn't find anything... a mix of what they post, who they follow and the type of pics they have.

    it's some super hot girl with a professional pic, following 50 girls and just 2 guys and posting only sexual stuff of the type a guy would like to hear... especially if it's a new account

  • Seeing as you created your account today and you're already worried about catfishes, I think it's possible that you are one.

  • Read up on her as best as you can and famiurize yourself very well. Then in conversation ask questions based on your knowledge of her , see if she knows herself as well as you do

  • You can usually identify a catfish by its distinct whiskers.
    In the case of trying to tell apart a catfish and a bullhead, take a look at the specimen's tail. A catfish generally has a tail fin split in half by a v-shaped inward curve similar to that of a dolphin. A bullhead, however, does not have the split tail fin.

  • Keep asking them the same question every now and again you will see their answers changing.

  • -If they Refuse to send you pics
    -Add them on Facebook
    -Check out if their friends live in the same area he/she says their from.

    • That sounds like an invasion of privacy.

    • @Raymond_Reddington no lol that's what a basic friend is. I call my friends on the phone. I know where they live, who their friends are. Etc. If she's talking to someone and knows nothing about them then they aren't friends and she shouldn't trust them as much

  • You go to where catfish are and you spot them.

  • Google reverse search, if that doesn't work
    If they refuse to Skype
    If they refuse to send more proof pics
    If they refuse to send Facebook/Instagram link or if their Facebook/Instagram link looks fake because the friends don't live in the same area or there is inconsistent information

    • If their answers are not consistent that's one big red flag
