Tinder may be the hot new dating app for regular folks and beauty queens, but it's not without flaws.Cybersecurity company Symantec revealed in a blog post earlier this month that it had come across fake Tinder profiles, which spam people and direct them to an apparent porn site designed to take their money.
Most cameras require a human to operate it or mains power to power it.
Quoting the French police on the BBC programme: "This sort of crime is only possible because of the unique connectability, anonymity and intimacy-at-a-distance which the internet affords.
Until the differences that separate international law enforcers are bridged as easily, we will continue with victims in one country, perpetrators in another - and with little that can be done about it." The programme can be viewed on BBC i Player.
The fake profiles show up alongside the other photos of strangers you see once you've signed into Tinder through Facebook via the i Phone app.
For those who haven't used it, on Tinder you fill out a simple profile and post a few photos of yourself.
"This is likely because they created fake accounts on Facebook and did not populate them with any interests." He also suggests that you read the short bio they provide. A few fake bios that Symantec encountered included lines like "will u do it right" and "just need a booty call." Also, remember that spam accounts never send the first message. On one popular dating site, OKCupid, users can be chosen to become moderators.
