I'm broke. I'm looking for a job. I find a guy offering me a job on reddit doing crypto transfers. I don't really know how they make money just trading crypto, but apparently that's the job. Now he wants me to add his business bank account as an external transfer so I can pull money out of it to do the crypto transfers. I don't know anything else about the job or the business he has so I don't know if I can trust him. It's like an underthetable unofficial job, no contracts, nothing.
Does it sound like a scam? Is there some way I can validate the bank account info he gives me?
Well I cut contact and called him a scammer, here's what he said to me:
"Man you need to relax your paranoia Crypto mining isn’t illegal Look up OSCP if you want. I work freelance What would I scam you off? I never asked for your money I literally made you an offer You can choose not to work with me but don’t accuse with all this shit You clearly have some issues to work on, sort yourself out. Goodluck"
Here's his reddit user: https://www.reddit.com/user/Temporary_Potato_484
He told me his company's name was "Core inc"
Update 1 - 7/21
Holy sh** this goes so much deeper than I originally thought.
I called him a scammer. And I said "call me then, you won't". And he did. He told me to "hold on" for 5 minutes before he joined the call.
We hopped on to a call (on discord). He said he didn't want to be disrespected by me calling him a scammer. He paused several times, probably talking to the people around him. He's using some sort of voice filter and has a heavy accent, but I can't tell what accent it is, his voice is very deep.
I couldn't understand anything except that he wants to send me an ID to show that he's legit, and that I should send him my ID so we can confirm a business deal. We leave the call.
Now he's telling me that he'll straight up send money to my PayPal and that's all I have to give to him.
I said, "before I give you my paypal, I want to see your ID as you promised". Now he said "hold on" again for 30 minutes. and that's where I am at now.
I'll post updates here regularly until this is over. I saved the chat logs too if anyone wants to see them let me know.
