This question already has an answer here:
I began virtual assistance as a hobby and I posted a few ads. A guy contacted me and gave me his Linkedin profile and phone number and asked me to contact him if interested. He said that he's a realtor in the US (I'm in Canada).
He said that his wife is having a surgery and he is too busy to manage some work issues. He wants me to help with emailing his clients and to do some transfers for him by opening a new account. He'll send the money to help send to his clients. I refused at first because I didn't want anything to do with this. He assured me that this is legit since he gave his business profile and contact details.
He said he doesn't know how to handle a US account from Canada and that's why he suggested that I open a new account. He needs me to respond on Monday. I Googled his business profile and found an address and website for his company.
Should I believe any of this?
