I got a message through OH that starts off "I'm a teenage IB student working a big project about VSG, trying to make people more aware of it and all." I'm a little bit suspicious, so I'm wondering if anyone else got this message as well?

Nope, haven't seen it.
Per the OH TOS, any solicitation to participate in research needs to be approved by the mods. Might want to make this student aware?

Gwen, I got that same message yesterday. It looked ok to me. I did answer the questions. After sending in the answers, I got a form from the teenager to sign. It also looked fine to me. The form had a school letterhead on top of the form. I think, as least I hope all is well. ??
