A "sugar daddy" requested that I send him my Cash App tag (username) so that he could put me on his payroll. He told me that I would then need to verify my bitcoin and pay a small fee of $70 so that the payment roll verification can be completed and that it is not a Cash App clearance.

I am very skeptical about this. I asked him why I needed bitcoin if I do not plan on using it, and he replied "[because] you are gonna use it to complete your verification" and then told me how I need to add the $70 to my account and then purchase bitcoin.

    "Sugar daddy" can mean one of two things. (1) it's a euphemism for prostitution, or (2) it's a scam. If you're not doing (1), it will be (2).

Anyone who promises to pay you money but first insists that you send money someplace they direct is trying to scam you. Now that you know this person is a scammer, it is vital that your permanently cut off all contact with them. Don't give them more chances to scam you.
