You can use the above link.

Customer:

that link won't open. When I cut & paste it it just takes me to a uscis website I checked BEFORE I sent you my question. It was NO help

Customer:

there is no place on that website thay a normal citizen can verify the authenticity of someone elses passport information. You have to be a business or corporation.

Andy4712 : You could call the government to verify.

I am curious as to the reason why you are trying to verify a passport?

How do you know this person? Have they asked you for personal information or money?
Customer: replied 5 years ago.

the site you gave me is of no assistance to my question what so ever.

 

I did not ask a family physician to answer my question. what good is that to me?

Customer: replied 5 years ago.
Relist: Inaccurate answer.
the website I was sent to I a had already found on my own and it did not provide any assistance to what I need at all.

I just wnat someone to tell me if & how I can use a passport number (I have an email picture of this person's passport)to verify if it is a real passport belonging to this individual - that is is it authentic or a forgery?

the response I got does NOT help me in any way.

There is NO way to authenticate a photograph or photocopy of a passport.

I'm not sure why your are trying to authenticate a person's passport, but I would be very suspicious of any scheme or request for assistance or money that involved a claim that they have a US Passport and need something from you.
