After transitioning from the clicking function Tinder initially used, Tinder became the first "swipe app", now a term to describe various apps that use swiping left or right to control what content the user sees in a browsing fashion.
Information available to the users is based on pictures from Facebook, a short bio that users write themselves, along with linking Instagram and Spotify account.
The site also has verified profiles for public figures, so that celebrities and other public figures can verify they are who they are when using the app.
Instead of swiping right for a profile, the user swipes up.
The complete scam reports on scammers using these pictures you can find on Romance Scam.com, this is just an overview.
Scammers take advantage of people looking for romantic partners, often via dating websites, apps or social media by pretending to be prospective companions.
