To be clear, we video chat frequently, so I know she isn't a guy. Her Facebook has tons of pictures, pictures from class, pictures with friends and family, etc. She hasn't asked for money or suffered a sudden tragic accident which only my credit card can save her from. She sent me the initial invite, but I was the one to pursue regular contact with her. It will be months yet before we can meet in person, but she does want to meet when she comes to the states (she doesn't need me for a visa, either).
I've read a bit about love scams. Most are clumsy, but it sounds like some are extremely elaborate. She hasn't given me any specific reason to be suspicious, but I'd like to head off the possibility instead of continuing to worry about it.
What would you consider proof that the person you're talking to is exactly who they say they are? How would you ask? I want to iron out the question once and for all, while providing the same proof to her, preferably without causing offense. Would you even consider meeting people online in the first place?
