How to know whether my penpal is a fake person?
but i just want to know how to make sure?
my pen pal lives in brazil, so hes kind of poor and not as well off as i am, so he doesnt own a computer, he goes on at school.
we write to eachother often and also email if he cant afford to post a letter.
but he seems real because he has a lot of pictures of him and he has photos of him as a child. which he put on the penpal website.
so im confident he is who he says he is.
but how can i be certain?
he uses his school computer, and i never really asked him about photos.
Do you understand what the pen-pal mean ?
Who is really care about it either fake or true .?
Pen pal is for someones we can talk too about grudge in our heart …..
As long as he didn’t mention about asking money that fine for me …..
Sympathy for them is right but asking about money that no way …..
I have meet a poor people only and asking me to donated money …
I ask him why you wanna the money for ?
He said wanna to buy some meat …
Then am buying the lunch for him ….
He throw it way went he get it ……
Certain about 1 person in pen pal ….
If he or she not asking for money you can trust him …..
That man to man / human heart hard to guess …..
