So, I’ve been chatting with a man who supposedly works offshore, I even hit the video button to see if he was who he said. He did match his pictures. However....he gave me this email [email protected] and said it’s a bank that he needs my help to activate an account. Then he says I have to pay $1700.00 to activate it and I’ll have access to the money he puts in it. I call bs. I have never had to pay to activate an account but I have no idea how this works overseas. (Even if I had the money I wouldn’t do it). I just want to know if this is the scam it seems to be. Thanks
Definitely a scam. Send him $1700 and that's the last you hear from him. Even if there is such a requirement, why doesn't he use his own money for the purpose?
You can't trust anyone you meet online with your money.
