    Check how many friends--oftentimes if the account has very few friends they just put a profile together to scam with.

    Anything on the internet has the possibility to be. I take anything on Facebook with a grain of salt. I speculate all is a scam and full of total BS.

    By being highly judgmental.

    Unless you actually know them there is no Real way to tell Even if they show Proof there are ways to Fake the Proof 

    If you know them you can Contact them Outside of Facebook and Ask if its really them

    Facebook's TOS Terms of Service Says not to Contact Strangers that you dont actually know in Real Life

    Easiest is to ask them to provide a picture proving that they are who they say they are that is current. You could ask specifically for a picture of them holding up a certain number of fingers or something. But the only way to know 100% certainty they are who they say they are is to know them in person outside of websites or Facebook.

    If their profile is open, you can see how old the account is. If they’ve had a Facebook account for eight or more years and have lots of legitimate post, it’s probably real.
