Is it that improbable?

I always find it a bit funny when I converse with certain Brazilians online who don’t know me but think that because my Portuguese is good enough that I can only be Brazilian. Is it that improbable that someone, anyone can learn another language, including slang terms and cultural references? I understand that the lesser-known the language, the higher the chance that a non-native speaker would speak it, much less know how to speak it informally, but Portuguese is widely-spoken throughout the world.
