Recognizing similar images

You guys have probably been wondering, why would I want to collect keywords for images?

As you may have noticed, you can search here if a photo that you have received has already been posted to this site. This photo search will work when you received exactly the same photo as someone else prior to you.

But the scammers are getting smarter. They take a photo of some model and slightly modify it. Each scammer may modify it in a different way. Usually they crop the image. Look at the two following ones:





Obviously the same image, but different size. The 'photo search' function will not recognize that these 2 photos are the same.

Now I added the ability to keep track of similar photos. The system will automatically recognize them based on the keywords. That is why it is not a good idea to add keywords like 'This is Natalia'. Instead the keywords should describe what you see on this picture- color of cloth, hair, etc.

I hope this will be helpful, in the long run. Only a small fraction of the images so far have received keywords. It's a lot of hard work.

Here are 2 other - 'similar' - pictures:


As you can see, they've been cropped to a different size and one has also been made 'brighter', for whatever reason. The keywords exposed them as being 'identical'.

This guy says his name is Andrew James, a 1st Sergeant in the Army in Afganistan. Has asked to have a 'care package' sent to him, asking for specific items. Hasn't asked for money yet, but I'm sure that is to follow. His 'diplomat officer' (contact person who get the package delivered to him) is in Accra-Ghana.

This number is still existing. just like what Ms. Witty from USA said, a person named Mark Roland from London told me the same thing..told me to send the money for clearance and duty tax fee for the luggage to be release by the customs and send the money under the name of NURATIKA BT MUHAMAD HUSAINI
ADDRESS: KUALA LUMPUR KLIA, MALAYSIA. I think he forgot to mention Western Union. Why is this Nuratika still doing this? Why is he still in KLIA? Is that mean they are no reports in their country that he is doing this scamming?. don't ever send money to strangers.

I want to know if this picture is stolen also from someone else.. thank you very much for this site, it's a really big help. i was a victim too, just two days ago. Thanks God i have found this in GOOGLE. Thank you.

Here's another scammer pic that 'they use' as it's probably a team effort. Goes by a fake name, no doubt, 'Harry Ratchford' says he Swedish, speaks with a slightly british or middle eastern accent. Construction engineer overseas, sends adoring and loving emails and lets you know how tragic his early childhood and much more to make you feel sad for him. Then suddenly new tragedies befall him where he needs your money! Miller Jeferry (FB) and Andrew Johnson (FB NY,NY) may be tied to him.
