Photos you cannot dispute...

Picture a profile photo of a woman in a hotel room and the caption states what city she is in when the photo was taken. Orlando Disney? Hyatt in Atlanta? Hilton in Paris? or 5 miles from home at the Double Tree Suites in Shitsville, North Dakota?
Actually, there's no way to prove or disprove what is stated with photos like that.
Maybe stationary, restaurant menu, holding up a key with the hotel name on the tag... something. But that's not the full story.
From a man's point of view, if someone took the photo of her and she's in bed or wearing a sexy nightgown, chances are the photo was taken by a guy... possibly the one night stand that her profile claims she's NOT looking for.
My advice: Move on.

True that you cannot (easily) prove where a photo was taken. Of course you may be able to identify landmarks in the photo and use various forensic techniques to prove it, but that's not for casual use.

But more easily, most people don't know that there is what is called EXIF Metadata in most digital photos that contains the GPS coordinates of where the picture was taken. Of course this too can be spoofed if you know how to do it. But the average scammer doesn't.

You may in fact be able to tell where the picture was taken simply by reading this data if it exists. Not 100% foolproof, but depending on the circumstances, potentially pretty reliable.
On her ? banana laugh
DR, I haven't checked this, but I believe uploads to Facebook retain their EXIF information. I heard a story of a woman posting photos of sunbathing and shortly after had a visit from a guy who captured the GPS coordinates from the photo.
Dating sites 'convert' member photos into smaller images and possibly the header gets stripped from the new image.
If you have to go to that much trouble about a photo, give up online dating laugh
laugh molly, is that what you did?

Seriously, if you distrust the person from the start, it makes no sense to continue.
I must have seen a few hundred photos of women sitting at a table with an expensive meal.
Chances are 'Mister Wrong' paid for the meal and took the photo thinking the date went really well. It didn't, but that photo is on her profile now.
Actually, some women (and men) are professional daters just to get free meals, movies and dates with people they really had no interest in wanting to be with.

If you remember my blog about 'ghosting' that's a perfect example. Catch a date or two and disappear with no explanation.
I don't think I have ever dated anybody with a public photo up, so it is a moot point for me

I go by their words and the feeling I get rather than a pic
daears
Come on.
Tell the truth dunno
How the heck do you know so much about without looking confused
You've got a wife an your writing about what other women are doing.
You've never written about your wife confused
How come you don't include her here dunno
daears, I started dating BEFORE internet. Classified ads in a local newspaper.
I speak from experience in meeting women without photos... only the sound of their voice on the phone.
You have pried several times, what details do you need to know about my wife that I haven't already disclosed?

molly, there's lots of BS in a nice voice and great story.
Nice voice? I would have to talk to them on the phone for that uh oh

laugh

Don't worry about me, Chat, I have never been caught by a scammer or anything even close. My internal radar is way too good for that.
"From a man's point of view, if someone took the photo of her and she's in bed or wearing a sexy nightgown, chances are the photo was taken by a guy... possibly the one night stand that her profile claims she's NOT looking for"

At least you can bet she is not looking for YOU exclusively.
daears
Oooooo touchy laugh . Dude. You should re-read all off your words here and see how little you speak of your wife. If I had a wife. I'd not even be on a dating site period dunno .
And I wasn't when I had my last lady whom I met here on CS.
If all married people weren't on dating sites
Us single people would have alot more chance of meeting singles dunno
Instead we have to put up with married people with time to waste confused
The married people I know don't hang out online dunno
My profile clearly stated my intentions here.
I don't respond to women so there is no loss for you.
Here's a tip: Dating women rarely blog.

I'm off to work, but I'll have to give you a list of married or attached women here so you can personally tell them to stop using the resources.
