Identity TheftIdentity Theft Identity theft is when someone uses another person's personal identifying information, without their permission, to commit fraud or other crimes. In both the U.K. and the United States it is the theft of personally identifiable information. Identity theft deliberately uses someone else's identity as a method to gain financial advantages or obtain credit and other benefits, and perhaps to cause other person's loss. The person whose identity has been stolen may suffer adverse consequences, especially if they are falsely held responsible for the perpetrator's actions. Personally identifiable information generally includes a person's name, date of birth, social security number, driver's license number, bank account or credit card numbers, PINs, electronic signatures, fingerprints, passwords, or any other information that can be used to access a person's financial resources. & Use Of Photos Without Consent

We think all of our visitors should see this, as it relates to the problem of identity theft in Romance ScamsScams A Scam is a confidence trick - a crime -  is an attempt to defraud a person or group after first gaining their trust through deception. Scams or confidence tricks exploit victims using their credulity, naïveté, compassion, vanity, irresponsibility, or greed and exploiting that. Researchers have defined confidence tricks as "a distinctive species of fraudulent conduct ... intending to further voluntary exchanges that are not mutually beneficial", as they "benefit con operators ('con men' - criminals) at the expense of their victims (the 'marks')". A scam is a crime even if no money was lost..

Scammers steal the photos of not just porn stars, but also real normal people from Facebook and other sites.

Especially, and ironically in the case of men, almost all are just normal people. But it happens for women too, not all are porn stars.

They are all victims, and we try hard to be respectful in our use of stolen photos. Unfortunately, we have to share them, so you are empowered by being able to recognize the stolen faces.

We completely agree with the message of this video and share it with the intention of helping to promote a greater understanding of image theft without consent.
