Hi,

I'm Zoey.

I've reviewed your post. Is this man someone you have actually know and have met in person, or is this some internet romance who's asking you for money by claiming that he can't get off of his oil rig?

Been on Rig since last week of June, finished job. needs to get off Rig to go to Bank to get money to pay a certain for getting him this job
Lawyer: Zoey, JD, Attorney replied 10 months ago

People who ask a question like this are typically being scammed. If someone can reach you, they can reach their bank online and authorize payments to creditors. This is just a way of claiming that they are stranded so that they can take your money.

I don't know the terms of this person's contract, but the industry standard is two weeks on the rig and then get two weeks off.

Lawyer: Zoey, JD, Attorney replied 10 months ago

I think you're being scammed. There's a well-known fraud where an impostor who has hacked someone's account reaches out to that person's friends and family with a phony emergency and asks them for money. In reality the person is safe and sound, but his loved ones respond without double-checking and wind up wiring money to a scammer.

What you have told me fits that scam pattern. And if your accounts have been compromised, that tells me something too. The story you were told doesn't make a lot of sense to me.

If this person is a loved one or family member, call others who know him and see if he isn't really safe somewhere.

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
