Hello, I am Keith, one of the experts on Just Answer, and pleased to be able to help you with your question.

Don't even begin! This has all the hallmarks of a classic scam. Pay their 'taxes' and that is the last you will see of them and your money. My advice to you would be to have nothing to do with the suggestion. You could report this approach to the police.

I do hope that my reply has helped clear the air.
