A friend of mine says that 4 years ago he invested $500 in bitcoin and now the bitcoin company is paying off $50,000. He wants me to use my bank account to receive the money. He says he needs my routing and account number and for me to take out 35% and send him the rest. Mind you, he doesn't want to go through Western Union or Moneygram or any money transfer companies.
Is this money laundering?
