The fake profiles show up alongside the other photos of strangers you see once you've signed into Tinder through Facebook via the i Phone app.
For those who haven't used it, on Tinder you fill out a simple profile and post a few photos of yourself.
“If you look at other contemporary apps, most project a ‘one-to-many’ theater,” Arielle Goren, director of communications for Houseparty, told The Post of apps like Houseparty and its predecessor Meerkat.
If both people "like" one another they are connected through an in-app chat feature.
Tinder doesn't currently have any way to report spam in the app, and Symantec suggests that you just "block" any users who you suspect are fake.
"We are aware of the spammers and have already taken precautions to prevent them from bothering our users," a Tinder spokesperson said in a statement to The Huffington Post.
According to the blog post, the fake accounts only chat with you if you chat them first.
Once they start chatting, many of them have similar scripts.
