5 Red Flags of a Sugar Daddy Scammer

By Caitlin

ARE YOU A SUGAR BABY? GET PAID TO WRITE FOR US!

Sugaring has never been so popular. There are sugar dating websites and apps galore and more potential daddies and babies join every day. And that’s great on one hand since it means more candidates to choose from but the downside? The mass migration to sugar websites also attracts some unsavory characters.

Yup, the rise of sugaring comes with scammers, and the first thing you need to know as a new sugar baby is how to spot them quickly so you can continue your search for a genuine sugar daddy unscathed. Look for these tell tale signs to help you identify the hucksters before you get scammed!

It sounds too good to be true

Some sugar daddies are truly generous. They won’t be stingy when offering you an allowance that fits what you’re worth (a lot). However, there’s no such thing as free handouts and if your POT is offering a hefty monthly allowance in exchange for phone calls and text messages, there’s a chance that he isn’t the CEO that he says he is, and is planning to scam you.

This is especially true if you two have never met. There are tons of sugar babies out there, so why would he open his wallet to a stranger if he can do the same to someone he’s actually met a few times? Be on your toes, and trust your gut instinct.

He asks you to open a Chase Liquid card

There are many variations of this card. Wells Fargo has one, Chase has it, and many other banks offer something similar. The idea is that your sugar daddy will be able to deposit your allowance straight into the card, but he has no access to your personal information.

It’s a reloadable prepaid card. To deposit money, the scammer might ask for some information on the card, using your allowance as an excuse. How it works is that they send you a check of a high sum, but the check is fake.

Once it’s deposited into your Liquid card, with the right information, the scammer can withdraw all that money at an ATM. A few days later, the check will bounce and the bank will call you — because now you owe the bank all the money that was on that check. Not only are cards like these uninsured (meaning there’s no way you’ll get your money back), but by then, the scammer will have blocked you and ran off with your money.

Scammers will often make up different stories to get the maximum amount of money sent possible. They’re buying jewelry for their coworkers, they’re throwing a surprise party with an extravagant budget, or they’re just promising that you can have a cut of the money if you deposit the check for them. Never deposit a check for your sugar daddy. There are tons of other discreet ways to transfer money. Check out the most popular ways to get your allowance.

He asks you for nudes before meeting

A respectful sugar daddy should never ask you for nudes. Daddies are kind and courteous, and they never pressure a sugar baby to do something they’re uncomfortable with. If he asks for nudes or other provocative pictures, that’s a big no-no.

If you both have an established relationship and he’s proved to be real sugar, and you’re comfortable, go for it! If not, block him and don’t look back. These “sugar daddies” are just fishing for nudes and won’t actually reward you for them.

He asks for bank information

With modern technology like Paypal, Venmo, and even Chase QuickPay, why does he need your bank account information? You only need an email to send money securely.

There is zero reason that your sugar daddy needs your account number, social security, or any logins. If you are asked, politely decline and offer to use a different method of payment. All apps are equally as discreet and only show up as “Venmo” or “Paypal” in their bank account statements.

He’s asking you to buy something

Many times, scammers will ask you to purchase them a gift card or gift cards. A common one is iTunes. They will offer you a multitude of stories on why you need to buy them these gift cards with the promise to pay you back.

The scammer will then ask you to send him pictures of the barcode and pin, drain the money out of the gift cards, and stop communicating with you altogether. Since it’s a gift card, you won’t be able to get your money back. This is a very common scam that you should always watch out for! If he needs gift cards, he can buy them himself. No excuses!

I got scammed pretty bad. If it weren’t for my daily withdraw limit, I’d be screwed. My sugar daddy offered a lot of money and I assumed he was just some desperate, lonely, rich guy. He said he was working as a contractor for construction on private government buildings. It’s pretty obvious now that I think about it. I was just blinded by my need of money. He ended up only taking 200 (luckily) since my bank caught on that there was an attempt at a large purchase of Apple cards. He had told me he needed a program on his laptop to finish his work and he could see me after. Long story short, after a long time talking, he asked for my Wells Fargo info to log in and take a picture of a check and deposit it to him. It was about 2k and he wanted 600 for programs for 2 laptops, and a deposit of 1000 to Western Union. When I went to get the Apple cards, a lady told me scammers pick iTunes cards and Western Union to take your money without a trace. After that I asked more questions and only did 200. He took it and never responded.

    Well I’m in the same situation but I think I stopped it cause he’s offering 200 a week and then he had my information and deposit a big sum of like 1700 and 1200 and wanted me to send it to western union and my bank already caught the bad check from the 1700 so I changed all my info on my bank so they can’t get it but I hope that’ll stop them cause I was aguing to his “accountant” and I told him I’m not stealing any money I’m not touching it till the next day which confirms if the money is real or not I already caught them in two lies so I’m not belong anything

          They will never get lawyers or anything. They say that just tonhet you to send the money but if the bank has a hold on your account or anything you will not be able to get the money anyway.I had been scammed thinking I had a job and they sent money orders that were fake and I cashed them. Then I took the money and western union it to the person and a couple of weeks later the bank came to my house to ask for the money back but I had already figure it was a scam because I could not get a hold of the person.The bank want me to pay back the money I owned but i did not have a job so I could not. So my parents could get a loan with them and pay it to my account.

          I literally just had an experience where I called the guy out. He paid $500 for my credit card bill and I told him I contacted the authorities (because I did) lol he then began demanding the money he used to pay my credit card but the payment had processed and the only way he’s see that money is if he had a three way phone call with me and my credit card company (which he never responded about) so idk long story short. I’m still a little worried. are there any cases of guys like this ruining your life because of this? like I highly doubt $500 is THAT big of a deal but who am I to know, yknow? I immediately changed all my bank/credit card info (which I did before I even gave it to him. I changed al my personal info like phone numbers, addresses, passwords even so that none of them can be traced back to my main accounts). He asked me to open up Wells Fargo and chase liquid lol so I did and idk he hasn’t tried logging on at all. Should I be worried? Can I be implicated in any way?

    So I don’t exactly know if I’m getting scammed. He supposedly lives in a different state and is offering to pay me 300 a week and asked for “sexy pictures”. I’m new to this whole sugar thing so I don’t know what to expect anyways but he told me that I should make a new bank account for the Sugar world since I’m so new. But I haven’t been paid yet and I haven’t exactly sent him nudes but I have done his favor in asking for pictures. Can someone give me advice or help me figure things out with this Daddy?

      I actually just got contacted with the same idea this morning Kimberlynn. He is a pilot, working down in Peru for awhile and wants for pay me $300 a week to send him pictures and says we will meet when he comes back.

      I too am new to the sugar baby world and so when he asked what bank I used, my gut told me to start researching this out.

      I think I will open another account as well just for this- however I am not going to pursue things with this fella I just feel to uneasy about it.

I had 3 guys do it to me. You would have thought the 1st was a red flag but when two were asking and explained the same thing I thought it was how it goes since I’m really new to all of this. 2 of them deposited into my account 2400. One said to take 400 and the other 2000 into a western union for a charity. The other one said to keep 800 and buy 16 $100 iTunes gift cards. I was stupid enough to give them my log in information to my bank because I thought it was how it worked. And the 3rd guy only got my routing number and account number. He then asked for my log in for his accountant (btw all three guys had an accountant) and he cane back saying that he went over his spending limit and that he was going to give me his week paycheck and that I would take out my portion and then help to pay his suppliers. I told him no I wouldn’t give him my log in information. I told him it was compromised and I didn’t want him to get hacked if I was already. I never heard from him. After that I did some research after damage was done and realized that I fucked up. I called my bank immediately and tried to fix the damage done. They got me for my log in too and my social. I called the following morning to figure out why it was still pending to find out that I was compromised again that they had found a way to forge and tap into the phone line. I quickly went to the bank to figure out what happened. They were shocked to know that their lines were tampered. So just for all you sugar babies out there, don’t give your bank info out. And if you did like me, don’t call your bank. Go to your bank!!! Be sure to put an alert on your ssn and be sure that you submit an alert. I told one of the guys who did it what I did and told him how it was all reversed and he begged me that he would take care of it. But I told him it was done and over and he stopped talking to me. The other guy who got in. I told him that it was all reversed with my bank and that I understood that he would not want to speak to me any longer. I told them that a police report was filed and funds were being reversed. And he actually still wanted to talk to me but I warned him that I wouldn’t be giving him any bank info and there was always Venmo or PayPal if he really wanted to give me an “allowance”. He understood. So i guess we will see what happens.

So i opened up a new bank account and sent him the account number and routing number. He put $100 bc r account had an opening limit. Now he’s asking for log in to add it to his bank to transfer easier. When i told him he just needs the account and routing he got upset. This a scam right? Like i have my doubts bc he said $400 weekly and we never met. We been taking for three days.

      I’m in the same situation! SD/Dom and I have been talking a couple days. Offer to pay 500$ for allowance, asked for nudes, has 2 cell numbers. Wanted my bank account info or credit card info plus my full name and credit limit.
      Told him I can’t do that because you don’t give any account information out. He keeps pressuring me for the info. I told him there has to be another way like PayPal or Venmo. He dodged the statement. Now he is asking for an iTunes card or steam card. When I asked him why he said that’s what a sub is for to run that errand.
      I said it seemed like an odd request. He’s trying to guilt me into doing good strong upset I won’t just run out and buy them. He goes by Robert he has a 631 number and a 657 number.
      At first I thought I’m being paranoid because I’m. Ew to this but after doing some research he’s scamming me or at least trying to.

I was pretty close to coming into a scam. Same story as some of the other comments. I did give my account number and login, but grew suspicious before anything was done. He asked me to get ITunes gift cards, and then I would supposedly keep the rest of the money as my allowance. I changed my info right away and set my account so that before login, I get sent a code (to my phone number btw) and then that code is required to continue. The code is unique each time. Hope this is enough and the guy will just give up. Because my account number and routing number was given, I am still going to my bank to see if additional measures are needed. I am
looking into closing the account entirely. I pray nothing happens. I even cancelled my debit card. He was reported to seeking arrangements and went by Charles who is 51 from California for future reference.

In my defense, I was completely new to the whole sugar baby life. I obviously had no idea that these scams existed!

He claimed to be importing cars for a company that he inherited . He sent me money via check (these were fake checks ) he said he sent me too much and had me send it away . Immediately I felt uneasy but did it because I was promised more money . I’m busy I word 60 hours a week so I’m not the easiest to contact that being said he called me 50 times so I was forced to block his number . I still had some of his money and he said if I didn’t do what I was told he’d call the police. So I followed the instructions as given . I went to the bank to switch over accounts and noticed that there were -thousands in my account which I am now responsible to pay back . All because I was worried about my student loans . Daddy said he’d pay those too , thank god I didnt let him send me that heft sum .

After being on a sugar daddy app, I contacted a guy and he asked me how much I wanted my allowance. I said $200. After I gave him my credit card login information. He willingly made a payment of $2,350.00 without my permission. Afterwards, he threatened to call law enforcement on me if I did not buy him 10 iTunes gift cards adding to $1,000.00. I immediately cancelled and locked my credit card account. This money was a real online payment. He is still threatening to blame me for fraud after no agreements were made in the beginning. After I refused to send him the gift cards he told me to send cash through western union which I also refused. Please be cautious and smart.

I had recently just fallen for the exact same scam as all of these commenters. The man had deposited 1500 IN MY ACCOUNT for an apartment. Just today I found out he was going to scam me, or is scamming me. I made the dumb mistake to give him my account login, and now I’m worried that he has a lot of my info, granted when it comes to my online banking mobile app, he can’t see account information on statements, but on a computer/website, that’s a different story.

Today he wanted me to get him Wal-Mart gift cards for his honorable attendees to his seminar. He apparently was an air pilot, and had a seminar for people who wanted to learn to fly. He said he needed them urgently because it was stressing him out for this presentation. I nearly had a friend get them for me since he was working there, and could do it. This man wanted me to go 45minites to get it, regardless of me telling him that i didnt have a way to get there several times. He wanted me to put 500$ on 2 cards with the money he gave me.

Prior to all of this he sweet talked me. He told me he’s take me Paris, get me a passport, etc. Well intol d him I needed money for food because I was starving.
He said i can use some of the money he gave me for food. Well, I used it. Only 60$ of it. Then I figured it all out when my friend kept saying he felt really off about the dude. I tried to get a friend to help this guy for me. All because I was so desperate for money.

I don’t know what’s going to happen now. I didn’t spend all of the money, only the 60$. I don’t know on him going to get into some serious money trouble with that, or what.

To be honest, I haven’t been able to shake the physical dirty feeling that I have from this. O feel so…. gross, disgusted, and like there’s pounds of dirt on me that I can’t get rid of. I don’t know what to do anymore.

Can someone help me I want to block this guy but I also don’t want to get in trouble. So one guy paid off a closed credit card and a open one all he said he wanted was love and affection. he got my login info and then asked for $300 of iTunes gift cards I said no and he said just send back $300 to PayPal I’m like ok that’s fine. It’s his money I don’t want any problems so i researched and saw the iTunes was a scam he said no it wasn’t and he wouldn’t do that. Don’t believe him. I called my bank and they said the payment looks processed it looks like it was done online well I called and changed my login and also will close my acct and open a new one with the same bank. I just don’t want this to go back on me. I feel really uncomfortable about this whole situation can someone talk to me and help me out

Just got scammed pretty bad and should have trusted my gut. He wanted me to buy 900 in itunes cards because his business partner was in Dubai and he was in Paris. I was sketched out so I sent him used fake itunes cards. Scam the scammer. He had an accent on the phone and said he traveled to Paris for work but lived in San Diego. He used a closed Bank of America account to pay my credit card off. And I was so excited. I immediately used it to buy stuff for my new apartment. I waited two days before using the card and thought the payment fully processed. Mind you this was after he asked for the cards from itunes.
I was like yay I can actually buy food and essential new home stuff. Of course two days later I log into my account and see the payment didn’t process. The bank I use cant help me but they offered a payment plan which is kind of them. Now the guy is threatening to air my nudes and number. Whatever that means. Some people might care but being nude isnt shameful to me. Grew out of that feeling a long time ago. On the plus side my bank said if I pay it off fast enough it wont show up on my credit report. So heres hoping.

I honestly fell for it like you guys. I always told myself I wouldn’t fall for it or fall there scams. My sugar daddy asked for bank info and online access. I fell for it. He asked for my credit card info. I gave it. I fell for all the scams. I would try and leave but he would convince me to come back. I had a bad feeling in my gut and I ignored it. He told me to buy iTunes gift cards and I did. When I go to the stores to do it. I would get the strangest look when buying them. I should have listened to my gut then. It would give me anxiety cause I felt like I was doing something wrong. I guess when you have so much debt in student loans like me and really desperate for money. I want to be able to do stuff. I just ignored the signs cause I was more money hungry then anything. It makes me sick to my stomach and feel so guilty for this. My second sugar wanted me to wire a check for him and he would put it in my account I told him no. He got very mad at me and told me if I didn’t do it that he was going to die. Cause he supposedly had prostate cancer. He actually sent a check for $153,000 to my bank. He mailed it to them. I told him no and he didn’t listen to me. He did it behind my bank. My bank account is now under fraud investigation because I was so money hungry and stupid to believe this sugar daddy. I also have checks bounce in my account cause they fake. You name it has happened to me. Now I am paying for the price. I am scared and nervous about the whole fraud thing.

    It’ll be okay. Just inform your bank about everything that has been going on, and this cops probably can trace this guy you never know. Just be careful you’ll be okay.

    I was scammed by SD last year where i lost everything to my name, he would tell me to send my money to his workers in Atlanta that he was going to refund me which he never did and I fell for it … I had to surf round the internet to see if there was any way i could get my money back, I contacted an Israeli lawyer who wasted my time and extra cash of mine but I was glad I met this good hacker who helped recover all my funds back from the SD. I am forever grateful to him, i promised to spread the news about him if he’s successful with the job and I’m glad he came out perfect” I’m glad i contacted him, he recovered my lost money back through bitcoins. Contact him on cyberTIRO@gmail.com or 559 565 5433 and thank me later

Babies, as an experienced SD, let me tell you that NO legitimate Daddy is going to ask you to handle business for him. He already has someone to do that for him, or he’s a competent man and can handle it himself. The only thing a Daddy should be asking you for is your attention and affection. He should be helping you handle your business, not relying on you to do menial things for him. Anyone asking you to do something involving you spending money, even money they’ve sent you, is scamming you.

Use PayPal or Venmo if you’re doing debit-type transactions. If he opens a credit account, it should be in his name and have your name on a card. He shouldn’t need to ask you for any information regarding any account – bank, credit card, or otherwise.

A Daddy didn’t acquire the wealth necessary to assist/spoil a baby by being unable to handle simple things like gift cards. There are concierge services for a reason as well. It is not your job as a baby to EVER assist him in financial matters, only possibly in personal ones. Think about it. If he needs your help to handle these kinds of rudimentary financial transactions, how could he have possibly became wealthy enough to have the extra resources you’re seeking?

Well I almost got scammed but my instincts are strong. In the first place why would he send me allowances just to be a sugar baby? Well that’s too generous.I stopped texting him when he got mad for not buying him a gift card. He asked me to buy some gift cards (actually I already feel that he is scamming me 😱) but still, I said yes just to fool him (haha silly me) so I just pretend to go to the store (Walmart to be exact) by not texting him for an hour and after that I told him that there’s no gift cards available in the Walmart and he was like “???” because he knew that there is and he got mad so I blocked him. Hahaha try harder to steal some money baby 😂😉

Well my story is a little different. This man deposited 1,000 in my account only to deposit a bounced check of 950.00. But there was a hold on the 1,000 check and it didnt come off till a week later. Lucky I was able to keep my account and they took that negative 950 from the 1,000 check. Which only left me with 50 dollars. But before I found out the check bounced, I told him thanks and that I got his deposit. Shortly after that he asked for a 50 dollar gift card, cause he knew 950 was going to be taken from it and that’s how much I was gonna have left. So guys be careful! If it ain’t PayPal or cashapp don’t trust it!

I’ve never done this before so I was quite nervous, he told me that I would get $300 twice a week for a total of $600 a week. He needed my bank info and dumbly I gave it to him and he deposited the money, but it isn’t availablee yet. I changed my password and my username so hopefully he doesn’t have access to it anymore he never got my account number or routing number or social nothing like that. Im waiting for the deposit to process to see if anything else happens.

I fell for one of these scams and I feel like i really shouldve known better. He wanted my accpunt info and asked me to send some money to somone for him that he deposited into the account. After i gave him the info the account had a check clear so i attempted to send it but my account restricted the ammount he asked for thankfully i was only able to do a few hundred. Cuz when i went back to my account ot was suddenly negative and now i cant get ahold of him.
I cant even believe I fell for that, I know not to give out my info. He also combined the scam wity the gift card one saying he needed me to do that so he would know he could trust me before sending me the fake check. What an assshole.

This just happened to me. He said many things that got me very suspicious. The fact he refused to meet me in person before money exchanged hands was my first sign. Then he asked for my banking info. I said no, no way in hell because I don’t know him. He did the usual, “baby, don’t you trust me. I wanna take good care of you. I wanna help your music career.” So I cautiously gave him info to pay off my credit card. When he did, he asked me to get six $100 STEAM gift cards, “for his cousins”. I immediately reported fraud, cancelled the payment, and called the police. IF IT’S TOO GOOD TO BE TRUE, IT IS! If you are still curious, do your research into SD scams, and ask A LOT OF QUESTIONS. Don’t let them try to manipulate you by claiming you are being difficult and dishonest. It’s not you, honey, that is being dishonest. And don’t worry, he threatened me with arrest if I just ran off with the money. If you don’t agree to sex for money, he has no legal grounds to have you arrested. BE SAFE OUT THERE, BABIES!

I’m new to this Sugar Baby business and I fucked up. I fell for it and ended up giving my Paypal account info, after giving him what he wanted. Sadly, he kept me asking me for more while he completely changed the password and email and phone number to the account so I couldn’t access it. I had zilch on the Paypal account and only 30 cents on a prepaid debit Visa card.

This just happened to me. Thankfully I listened to my gut and I cancelled the pending payments to my CC the day it was placed. I removed the added account and changed all my logins and passwords. I was so stupid to actually hand out my logins, that should have been a red flag, but I was so desperate for money that I ignored my gut. I told them some lie how someone had attempted to hack it and the bank traced the IP to a certain area and how they were investigating it all. It really spooked them, so hopefully they leave me alone. What really alerted me was when the sent me a screenshot of the payment being made and they were stupid enough to send the whole message from the person working with them Iin the scam.

Hey girls! So I’ve had a sugar daddy earlier this year he was great but he went away for a while so I decided to look for some new prospects in his absence. Now I’ve been scammed before (not by a sugar daddy) and it ruined my bank account to the point they just had to close the account.
But as I’m looking for new guys (I use Seeking) a few are messaging me wanting to text me, I use a google number for people online all the time because you never know.
Fast forward and I’m talking to two different guys, we’re talking about allowances and how I’d be paid. Both guys asked for my account info and I was a little skeptical but I used an account that was negative and wasn’t in use anyways and gave that to them to see how far this would go. Mind you, I’m talking to both guys simultaneously.
One deposits $1,700 into the account and kept saying he’d send more and more so i can go shopping and ect. Then he switched it up on me and asked if I can get him an iTunes gift card for whatever amount of money so he can activate his iPhone, like how dumb do you think I am. He then switched it again and asked me to put $1,200 on the card.
The other wanted to put $1,200 into my account. He kept asking me if the money had been deposited throughout the day. Eventually he asked me if I could do him a favor and get him an itunes gift card as well and that sparked the red flag and caused me to start researching iTunes cards.
Like what a coincidence that two totally different men are working the same angle?!
I’m preparing for the deposits to bounce and try and talk to my bank about the deposits or just close the account in general.

I’m 99% sure I just got scammed and I feel so stupid. We hadn’t even met, he said he was lonely since his wife died and needed someone to talk to. I asked for $250/week and he said okay. He asked for my main bank account info (account number, login info, etc.) but I said no because my family has access to that card and just in case, I did not want their money and identity to be compromised.

So, I opened a new account and gave him all that information but mobile deposit didn’t work. So, he got my credit card information out of me because he said he would pay off my debt (i’m a college student who needs books and is $100k of debt in student loans so i’m desperate). He had my home address, card number, and login info for my credit card. He said he deposited $500 to pay off my bill and I said thank you, but I was a little sketched out so I changed all my login info and called my banks. After he did the deposit, he asked me to keep $100 and then by 4 $100 iTunes cards for his “co-workers in Brazil” so, I blocked his number, reported him on allowanceonly and changed every username and password he had access to.

I’m hoping everything works out okay, I didn’t buy any gift cards and I wasn’t even using my real phone number, but an app. I’ll keep you updated.

Also his name was “Weasley” on allowanceonly. He has been reported!

LMAO just happened to me today, was promised $2000 in exchange for a $100 iTunes gift card. I’m an idiot and sent him a picture. After that, he said PayPal and CashApp won’t let him add his bank account and he “called his bank” and they won’t allow him to put his account on third-party apps. He then asked for my banking information. He’s about to catch this BLOCK.

Guys always use PayPal. PayPal means the money is directly taken fro their bank account into their PayPal (So you don’t have to worry about a cheque bouncing) and then sent to yours where you can do whatever you want with it.

If they insist on your bank information to desposit money or a cheque don’t give it. They can take information from the that which will put you in jeopardy. Not just at your bank but with the police too. Regardless if you can your password afterwards the information they can get is dangerous.

Ignored they are asking you to get a prepaid Visa card or debit card don’t. They can just as easily take the money in the card out and leave. It’s not a guarantee plus sometimes they’ll despoit money that they don’t have into the card. Let you know and then take all that money and leave. And your stuck in a bad situation with the bank.

Basically you shouldn’t have to pay for anything at the beginning. A gift card or iTunes card. No.

Just use PayPal. Plus it’s faster. You can use your PayPal to pay for stuff or deposit it in your own bank account. Either way all they needed was your email. Nothing else. If they say no then that mean they don’t have money since PayPal only let’s you send money you have not cheque and stuff that can bounce.

🚨🚨🚨A PSA TO GIRLS GETTING CONTACTED ON INSTAGRAM FOR SUGAR DADDY OFFERS🚨🚨🚨

this piece of shit messages me asking me if I wanted to be his sugar baby and would pay me 400 dollars a week. I was hyped at first. Then he asked me for my account number routing number and online banking username and password to send to his “account manager” so that it was a weekly direct deposit that appeared every week at the same time. Me and my friend convinced ourselves that this was just how it worked and I complied. He said he’d send me 2400 and that I would take the extra 2000 and western union it to China for his construction manager. He told me he worked for this big oil company and was traveling the world and couldn’t do it himself. He also kept begging me to buy him iTunes Gift cards and I should have done my research but luckily I physically didn’t have enough money to buy him any and kept telling him to wait till I got paid or that I would just buy it with my allowance and he promised on his fathers grave he would pay me back. I got the money in my account last night and noticed that someone changed my email over to a different one on my online banking. I was sketched out but the guy kept telling me how important it was to send the money to China that night but I’m on a road trip so I didn’t know where there were any western unions so I told him I’d do it in the morning. Come morning time I get a call from my bank saying there was over 40,000 dollars in bill pay going out to various parts of America. She said the check that was deposited was a fraudulent check from the state of Utah tax return. She said these people have my home address and all my information and now I’m freaking out because he sent me a really threatening text saying he’s going to call his attorney to get his money back and that he knew all my information and my address and that he’s gonna call his men to “take me down”. Someone please help and give me any advice you can

I was scammed by a sugar daddy. I’m a teenager in high school and come from a poor back ground. While talking I told him I was struggling with getting around and he offered to send me money for a car and like a dumb person I accepted. He asked for my username and password to do a mobile deposit again I agreed. He deposited it and I withdrawaled it from my account. Later he withdrew the checks and I’m 2,400 in debt. He said if I used the Money to buy some amazon cards he would fix it and I did. Now he still won’t send the money back to my accounts and I’m in 2,400 in debt I’m still in high school and only 17 I’ve made a mistake and I’m probably gonna be paying this off for the next 10 years I don’t have money like that.

I got it really bad. I let a guy access my account (dumb so dumb I know) I just really needed money. He asked for pictures and said he would give me an allowance of $300. The account I let him use was one I didn’t use anymore and I put a code on it so whenever he tried to access it then I would have to send him a code. Also on this account my mom was on it so I needed to make sure it got out of the account as soon as possible. He put $2400 on and as soon as he did that I transferred it to my other account. THANK GOD. it said it would take two business days and that part saved me. He started screaming at me because he said he needed me to buy gift cards. I then figured it was a scam. I have the police on it now but I received a text from his “lawyer” saying he was going to press charges and then another number from a “police officer” I know it’s fake but it’s scary. Luckily after the check bounced I was able to explain and I didn’t lose any money.

I had suggested PayPal which both said they don’t use. I’m supposed to meet one in a few weeks who will give me cash. She is asking me to buy cell phones to send to her workers in Malaysia, and ship by FedEx, another red flag. I will let you know how it goes.

Ladies! BEWARE. This is a HUGE scam happening on Instagram and I’m sure MANY other social media apps. A guy by the name “Kevin Vega” @kevin_v5710 ; phone number (610)440-4791 commented on my pic something sweet with the ending line “I should be spoiled”. Further into the day we ended up direct messaging and exchanging numbers. I realized more into the conversation he was referring heavily to my debt status! He then told me because the money was coming out of a “business account” he was going to have to personally pay my debts. He asked for whom I banked with! That has nothing to do with my credit card. Apps are VERY easy+convenient/SAFE. I even tried to talk about how he was and he changed back to the money! SD’s if they are “lonely” and looking for conversation will converse! it’s not all about the money when they’ve got it. I wish I could upload an image he sent me because even that was clearly not the same person I was speaking to. The text language did not line up with the look, at all.

MORAL: AINT NO WAY YOU SHOULD GIVE A STRANGER ANY OF YOUR INFO! The internet is a scary place. This is yet another ploy for people to get your personal information and steal!

So my sugar daddy told me to message him on kick, which I did. I checked out his profile it says he has been using it or 278 days (or something like that) it seemed legit. He starts talking about a weekly allowance of 500$ and you know I am cool with that (mind you he lives is MO and I am in AL, nowhere near him). When we start talking about payment methods he said he can’t use cash apps because he got scammed by his ex sugar baby on PayPal and she stole money from him and he has a friend in the FBI, reported her and got her arrested. He told me he would pay off my credit card debt but I don’t have any and I told him that. I suggested he give me his info because I was NOT going to give him my bank account. This morning he asked me to run errands for him and pick him up gift cards for his employees. I told him I was not going to purchase them with my money and asked for his info again. He gave me his routing number and account number and wanted me to transfer money into my account from his. I did not feel comfortable with that so I told him no. He now said he reported my picture and info to the FBI and I am going to get arrested for stealing from him. HOWEVER, I did not access his bank account or take out any money. I got a weird gut feeling that something wasn’t right so when I told him I wasn’t comfortable with having his account info (after he sent it) he told me he reported me and that I will be arrested and not to call him begging him to get me out of jail. Is this something I need to be concerned about?? HELP
