Police Create Fake Profiles on Facebook and Attempt to Build Relationships Along With Monitor Your Friends and Events

Police departments around the nation have taken predictive crime prevention to a new level by building fake user accounts, as well as posing as genuine people to gather information about local events, Tech.Mic reports.

Local agents put on a “digital mask” and pose as “members of the community,” allowing them to gather personal information about suspects they consider a high risk of being involved in a future crime or have existing charges.

In a social media guide for law enforcement officials published by the Justice Department, the document details, officers create fraudulent profiles even though Facebook officially bans the practice.

Departments are also beginning to use predictive analytical policing software, allowing authorities to patrol local neighborhoods based on social networking posts. If people are emotionally upset and publish it on social media networks, the software program labels the neighborhood high risk alerting law enforcement to occupy those area’s.

In a recent article published by Business Insider one police officer answered a LexisNexis survey that he “was looking for a suspect related to drug charges for over a month. When I looked him up on Facebook and requested him as a friend from a fictitious profile, he accepted,” and “he kept ‘checking in’ everywhere he went, so I was able to track him down very easily.”

Another respondent wrote, “Social media is a valuable tool because you are able to see the activities of a target in his comfortable stage. Targets brag and post … information in reference to travel, hobbies, places visited, appointments, circle of friends, family members, relationships, actions, etc.”

Out of 1,221 federal, state, and local law enforcement agencies that use social media today, more than 80% of the responding officials said social media was a powerful tool for crime-fighting and that “creating personas or profiles on social media outlets for use in law enforcement activities is ethical.”

The NYPD has even gone to the extreme to use photos of young attractive women on Facebook to spy on gang members, the New York Times reported.

No one seems to know if agencies use these photos with or without the consent of the person photographed.

Bradley Shear, an attorney and expert in social media and the law, is not quite sure how the justice system will handle challenges made to this style of policing. However, noting that “police often pose as prostitutes or drug dealers to catch criminals.”

We also know the government hires agents to sway political opinion under its notoriousOperation Mocking BirdProgram.

How to identify a fake user account on Facebook.

  1. Account was made recently 2014, 2015.
  2. Account has no history published for earlier years, but Facebook says they have been a member since 2009, etc.
  3. Most fake accounts have 1 image or no real profile photo of the person. Some may only have a select few photos over a long span of time. A well seasoned user would have more photos posted over a long period of time. A fake account may have 7-10 photos posted on the same day.
  4. User has very few friends in common and or friends in general.
  5. There is little to no interaction on their page with friends, no comments, likes or responses over their long time line.
  6. Profile picture seems to good to be true, that hot model added you today! They even messaged you and are interested in you!
  7. When in doubt use reverse image search. Take their image and see if it is a real person or not.
  8. When in doubt deny, deny, deny

  2. police have momitored me for years for no reason except i was a w itness to their overuse of force aqgainst a young girl and fabricated charges against me as if i started it all and the judge supported them as well as the ACCIDENT COMPENSATION COMMISSION IN NEW ZEALAND by ignoring the injuries and broken bones they gave me…my lawyer also turned on me during my appeal and delayed my cases so they were out of time…all corrupt and protecting our nazi police state

  3. It is discusting. i get so angry, soon we cannot breath freely:(((

  4. I can tell when they’re fake and I have to warn all my male friends who accept friendships from gorgeous women with only a few really suggestive photos and the girls pretend they like the guys.. I do reverse search and I turn them into facebook as a person posing as someone else. i didn’t know it was the ploice but knew something was wrong.

  5. This may help some but there are those of each of our own friends and family who are foolish enough to add anyone and they are watching you from their contact with each other…. They’re also all just hoping we have to use your own name. They are now go the extra effort to insure they know you can’t wear the mask, or so they can search anything about you. Take me , “Anonymous sUn” . Well they made sure Fb made me use my real name … So other departments can search for you were ? Yes you know .. There’s my real name … What does anyone what to know about me … They make sure they can find out … So My advice is to start another under a new name …. See the problem now is that Fb can not account for the numbers of members or real members …. Because they working to do what?
