This question already has an answer here:
I saw a comment posted under an Instagram picture & it said " I will deposit this much amount of money into your bank account call or text me for information" so I messaged this person and his name is John. I don't know where he lives I just have a number. He said he would need my first and last name and my online banking information not my date of birth, SSN, Address, Bank Address, Routing number, or checking account number. I don't know if it's a scam because all they want is my name and online banking username and password.
So my question is if it is a scam or could he really be wanting to put money into my account? Oh yeah, he also said they'll send it through my account and I'll send half of it BACK through money gram or western union.
No I haven't given him any of my information.
