Sugar Momma Scam - Scammers Trying to Break Your Heart and Empty Your Bank
I got followed and approached by a woman on Twitter. She says she is 37 and inherited money from her late husband. She says she is from Texas City, TX but living in Maryland, but Twitter says she is from Michigan, and her phone extension is from Seattle Washington. She called me stupid for asking for a picture of her holding a spoon to prove she is who she says she is, even though all of her photos are of the same woman and I can't find them by reverse image searching, but it is still suspicious as her photos could be ripped from someone's Facebook. She said she does not want anything sex wise but just wants to be happy by supporting others. This is the biggest red flag for me.
She said that she will write a check in my name and mobile deposit it to my bank. But she needs my online ID and password. When I said I didn't have the details for it on me she said "See you're not the one trying to help me here... I don't need anything from you and seriously I'm trusting you with my money .. if we really have to do this then you have to trust me (scammers love talking about trust) when I say I got you... I really do and seriously I don't need your info for anything... I have the physical check with me and if I wanna make the deposit I need the username and password to sign in on the app to make the deposit. You can even take all your money out before sending me them to me .. mine is just to make your deposit and that's all" And that was the exact typing wording and format.
I haven't given her any information at all other than the state I'm from and what bank I use, but I am not giving any username or password unless I make a bank account to test the scammers waters, although I'm not sure I can open an account and then empty it so that's why I'm here looking for advice. Thank you so much for reading and commenting if you do. I will take all the info into consideration.
