There are few things more disturbing than finding out that a person on the Internet who you're linked to is using a fake profile. Until now, it has been very difficult for the average user to reliably authenticate an online profile and protect themselves from cyber bullying, identity theft, fraud and other types of criminal activities.

PhotoVerified.com provides an innovative online safety tool that aims to empower Internet users to authenticate a user's profile photo. Knowing that the person you are interacting with online is actually who they say they are makes the entire Internet experience much safer for all parties.

The company has launched a Kickstarter crowd funding campaign to bring the service to market.

"Getting PhotoVerified™ is as easy as taking a selfie," said John Maitland, founder and CEO of PhotoVerified.com. "Our goal is to make 'Selfies That Save™' to fight the serious problem of identity theft and photo impersonations online." Maitland knows a thing or two about online safety. As a Detective investigating online child exploitation for five years, he has seen some of the worst outcomes that result from predators using fake profiles. This played no small role in his passion for this project. "It's the wild west out there right now with fake profiles and the Internet as a community needs to say enough is enough."

PhotoVerified.com will bring huge benefits to people who use Internet dating sites, social media, and any other cyber space where photo theft is widespread.

"I've seen the damage and cost to society from fake profiles online." added Frank Goldschmidt. Goldschmidt is known world wide as a pioneer in the battle against online child exploitation and is a Director with PhotoVerified.com. "The psychological impact on innocent people is devastating and online offenders feel anonymous behind their stolen pictures. Photoverified.com will ensure that what you see is what you get. There is nothing better to enhance safety on the web."

The company's goal is to raise at least $150,000 in the Kickstarter campaign set to run until May 2, 2015 and they are appealing to both business and individual donors for support.
