I got a friends request from someone and I accepted it. We started messaging and Im questioning whether or not this person is a real person or just a weirdo. If I send a message to CM would they be able to let me know?

They don't do background checks on people, so I don't think there's anything u can do to make sure they're not a crazy person

No. I know that. Im more wondering along the lines of where this person is most active. Im kinda sketchy about this person. They have a few pics on their profile and say they have a child but there are no pics of the child. Other things that I noticed too. Things said that make me wonder.

Do you think it's a creeper or someone you know trying to get information?  I ask because I've been in the position of the later and networking sites typically can't tell you anything but if you have concrete proof that they're not legit, like photos taken from other people, etc, they will be quick to shut it down.  Sorry, not much help.  If you're worried just stop talking to them, or if you're in for some fun try tripping them up :)

Im wondering if they are a creeper. They seemed perfectly normal to begin with and then things got weird. However if this person is normal I wouldn't want to get them in trouble. KWIM?

A lot of ppl don't post pics of their kids cause pedifiles. But if they're asking inappropriate questions, and make u think this way, better safe than sorry and stop talking to them.

I don't accept any friend requests that I don't know exactly who they are. I think I have about 30 requests just sitting in my inbox for this very reason.

I made that mistake once. This chick (well, maybe a chick) was asking me about my boys genitalia. I got so weirded out that I deleted my account, and now I never post pics of my kids. Stupid creepers.
