    Hey,

    So I am chatting with a guy atm and I wanna know if hes fake or not. He send me some pics, I wanna check if they are real. So I tried looking them up on image.google. It didnt match any of the pics it found. Are there any other ways? Besides the obvious ways like meeting him etc..

    Skype. If he can't Skype, explain to him that you've been deceived in the past and ask him if he has some idea how he can prove his identity.

    Some people are shy about going on webcam and having screenshots saved of them. You live in a city... skip the chatting and save it for an in-person meet, the earlier the better. If he's too far away or isn't up for it, don't bother.

    I guess so. But that doesn't ensure 100% the legitimacy of the photo. Video chat would be the only 100% foolproof method.

    Does no one talk on the phone any more?
    You might not like his real time personality and then that's that.
    As said above, it's a good idea to say, "I've been deceived before so send me a photo of you with my name on a piece of paper" or something like that. What could be easier?
    (That's when I became suspicious of my catfisher. He actually sent me videos of himself talking to me but none said my name!)
