    Angry People keep stealing my pictures to make fake profiles, WHAT THE SHIZZLE

    I've been told I look like this celebrity & my followers on Twitter reached a crazy figure because of this,
    So obviously to get more interaction I started to post pictures of myself frequently.

    Now I see people coming back to me saying oh "arn't you shakz, the 17yr old bengali?" I'm not bengali nor is my name shakz
    I've been getting random names over & over - I shut down a few accounts .. but there's obviously more.

    Anyway to track this down?

    Speak to Muscleteen, he probably has the same problem.

    Is this a joke? I'm getting people adding me after seeing my YouTube video saying "I was supposed to date the fake you" how can you date someone that isn't real? It's clear these guys have bad intentions in their mind. I just want to get any other accounts removed from FB, Twitter this isn't a thread boasting about my good looks.

    You could hire a dev to make a photo scraper to compare it and to automate a report thing or w/e.

    Just throwing an idea.

    Use Google "Search by Image" function to spot all fake profiles

    Some useful suggestions - the tineye is not working for certain just gave it an obvious picture and it picked up 0.

    Google search by image? You would need a keyword for this right? I don't have the names.

    Use the google search by image feature in images.google.com. post in your photo and see how many duplicates or similar pictures are there. Fake account are mostly public and google might have indexed from different profiles.

    Then report them.

    Good luck

    You probably are, handsome people who look like celebrities often post that information to complete strangers on forums.

    Everyone's pictures get scraped for populating accounts automagically. I wouldn't assume its because you're either handsome or look like a celebrity -- bots wouldn't tell the difference anyways. Maybe a 17 year old bengali genious programmed a bot to only pick handsome people that look like celebrities though, you never know.

    Watermark all of your photos with your twitter/fb username/url in a place that it is very difficult for stealers to remove or hide the url...

    Thanks for the suggestion buddy, the damage is already done I had this in mind before I decided to get brave and post without watermarks.

    I would not watermark it with your twt URL as it could potentially bring bad publicity to your name as well. Just watermark it in way people will lose the interest on using it.

    Start a page or campaign on FB. Get more fake mini-me's.

    You can't fight the tide. I'll say embrace it and use your popularity to your own advantage.

    No hard feelings, +rep. Just thought your post was funny as it sounded rather vain and then seeing your signature which says "stay humble". Good luck in getting them all deleted.
