Scammers usually create fake profiles to advertise for services/products, solicit for "help", prank others or even scam others directly for money. It is not easy to maintain extra social media network profiles and therefore, not many fake accounts will be maintained frequently. Those fake accounts that are well-maintained are usually for profitable reasons such as scamming for money or simply for work purpose (including cam girls's jobs).
Some months ago, we were looking at a fake profile who did not seem to be selling any product or service and neither a cam girl. The name was "Verene See". We did not discover anything strange about her at first despite some of her sexy photos uploaded were familiar. However, it seemed like her photos were in two different styles. It was until she started teasing her Facebook friends to LIKE her hot photo before she would upload new ones, we started searching around and realised many of the photos belonged to a Taiwanese girl - 徐湘婷, also known as 徐小湘. This Taiwanese girl was just a girl-next-door who had rose to fame because of her blog that included her hot photos of her sweet looks and 32F cup size.
We guess (yes, cannot confirm about this) that Verene See could be someone who resembles the Taiwanese girl and thus she is using her photos. We do not know her real motive for doing so.
Her previous Facebook account was GONE before we could broadcast about it, however, another new Facebook account with the name "Verene See" seemed to have emerged recently - https://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100003746033639.
Above are the screenshots of Verene See's main Facebook profile information and profile pictures pages.
徐小湘 is a Taiwanese and should be still living in Taiwan. Whereas, she is not from any Singapore school such as Singapore Chinese Girls' School (SCGS) or Ngee Ann Polytechnic (NP).
Basically, we can confirm that those photos with the longer and sweeter hair belong to 徐小湘. For example, the second photo from the top row does not fit 徐小湘's style as it looks more rebellious type.
Through our investigation through the Internet, it has been long since scammers have started using 徐小湘's photos to create fake accounts in Facebook. However, since 徐小湘 is a Taiwanese, not many Singaporeans would know about her name, but definitely would have seen her hot photos somewhere in the Internet before.
Below are some of the websites we have come across in the Internet during our search:

Basically, there are many fake Facebook profiles around but we are not able to confirm even though we have our doubts on them. We also have limited resources to assess each and everyone of them. If you are able to identify other Facebook profiles that are impersonating others, do contact us with your investigation report.
