    This is a scam. It will start as $25, and will steadily increase. Cut off all contact with any individual associated with this communication! They will continue to attempt to scam you. You must remain on high alert now that they have gotten this close to getting money from you! Commented Apr 16, 2018 at 16:34

    Unless you know these people personally (IRL), it is a scam (and even if you do, it could be). First clue? If "his friend" can arrange to get money from "your friend's" account to the one you open, they can just as easily get it to "your friend".
