Our verification system is designed to help prove the authenticity of the member you are speaking with. Once verified - it's a signal to you, that this person is who they say they are. Do not take it as gospel but it should give you a good indication into the person(s) behind the account.
However, we do have a very significant issue to point out to you;
You can verify a member easily, but be warned it can only be done for meeting people in person. Virtual meetings are unacceptable forms of verifications - such as cam or FaceTime etc.
By doing this we're ensuring that the person is real and someone has actually met them in person, who can then verify them as real.
