By a sample, do you mean a photo that was taken at the same time as the photo in question? That makes it pretty tough to actually test a claim. The claimant could just lie and provide a sample that was taken later, right?
No, I just meant a photo taken with the same camera so you could compare the exif data. It doesn't need to be at the same time. In fact, it would be better if you took the test picture yourself. Since a cell phone camera and/or internet hosting program will typically resize a picture and often strip the exif data, comparing originals would be a good way to know if a picture you are seeing is really an "original".
