SCARS™ Anti-Scam Tip: How To Catch A Scammer! Use The Photos!
You Know Scammers Steal Photos Right?
But Did You Know That There Is Hidden Data In Most Photos?
In almost all photos taken with digital cameras, assuming that it is not a screen-grab but the original photo, there is something called “EXIF” data or Meta Data embedded in the photo data file.
You can use this data to tell something about the photo.
There are several FREE online tools that can display this data, simply by uploading a photo into a tool. If it is an original photo directly from the camera that data will be there.
