Please help! I’m new to the sugar daddy world and he’s willing to pay me through email by sending me a check? He’s asking for me to provide my full name and email address. Is this fraud or no?
Yes, this is inevitably a scam. Using cheques for payment these days is incredibly rare and a forged cheque is a classic way to make the recipient think they have money irreversibly in their account, when actually it may be detected as a forgery weeks or months after the deposit when the money has long been spent. The “sugar daddy” will send you the cheque, ask you to deposit it in your account and then ask you to either buy something (from an accomplice) with the money or send some of the money on to someone else. That way they get your (real) money and you are left with their (forged, non-existent) money.
