“Deepfake” uses artificial intelligence to imitate a person’s face, voice, or both. The result is a product that looks like a real person, but there are ways to find these shame.

“The big picture isn’t entirely clear because of the blurring in the video,” said Roseann Freitas, BBB Hawaii Marketplace Manager. “Maybe there are some double edges on the face, or even unnatural blinks, or even no eye blinks.”

“Deepfake” is often used to impersonate a politician and disseminate false information, but it can also be found on fraudulent sites or emailed.

BBB recommends taking everything you see online with a grain of salt.

“So no matter what site you go to, you need to be skeptical,” Freitas said. “First of all, make sure you are visiting the correct website.”

False information from “deepfake” is a big problem, but scammers can also create deepfake for trusted family and friends.

Therefore, if you receive a strange request, it can be expensive to meet in person to make sure it really is them.

“They are especially looking for a lot of money or something unusual, saying it’s video or voicemail,” Freitas said. “Just check.”

Another tip to avoid deepfake scams is not to post your long clips online. Deepfake can only be created if the scammer has access to a selection of videos and recordings featuring your face.
