My question is to find out if I'm being scammed.
This guy says he's from California (area code 909) and we met at an online dating site. Says he has a daughter in TX, 30 yr old.
He is asking if he could do a "wire transfer" to my account from his account; attaching my account to his checking account.
He says he's going to transfer 5000 to my account. I'm to keep a thousand and send his daughter the rest by account transfer. I should also buy a few things for her and send them to her.
I'm feeling like this is a scam as he asked me for my online bank account user ID and password and security code.
He says he is on a boat for some kind of training and won't be back for 12 days. This was 2 weeks ago and I was like then your daughter can wait 'till you get back.
So is this a scam? It's smelling like one. I keep saying to just use my routing number and account number but he says it has be done with my user id, password, and security code.
