Scamalytics, the fake profile detection service, has released the top 10 celebrity profiles most used by scammers.
The list, which ranges from pornstars to Bollywood actresses, was created through Scamalytics’ image recognition software and photo blacklist.
Scamalytics co-founder Dan Winchester said: “As an anti-fraud company we aim to analyse as much relevant data as possible.
“Analysing photos is a natural next step for us. We are picking up more fraud faster by identifying scammers from their photos before they even go live on a dating site.
“Reputable online dating companies are keener than ever to clamp down on fake profiles created by scammers, and we are now even more effective in helping our clients prevent these fake profiles from ever appearing on their websites.”
