Hey guys

So basically this dude messaging me asking if I want to make 4K minimum. He said all I had to do was meet up with a guy, he puts 10K in my account, I go to Carphone Warehouse and buy an iPhone X, draw the rest of the money out and then give it back to "the guy" and he gives me a share? Idk??? Help???

Sounds like a scam. At some point you're going to have to give him your bank details.

Can I report it to the police with just a Snapchat?

If you have evidence of the chat then yes you can. You need to be sure if you want to take it further as reporting it to the police.

Of course it's a scam. Why would anyone just give you a large sum of money, and contact you by text to do so? Just block the number and move on.

dont even think about it. Yes it is tempting but dont.
there will be severe concequences in the future and itll cost you way more than 4K.
forget it
close the deal.

As others said, this is definitely a money laundering operation.

A cifas marker is a fraudulent marker that will be issued on your file and freeze your financial abilities for a maximum of 6 years or if the matter was ongoing, you could be looking at a lifetime of no bank account, mortgages, insurances etc....
I stupidly became victim to fraud and now I'm stuck with a cifas and the bank I'm dealing with are taking forever and the success rate of erasing your marker if issued with one and telling the bank the story about using the money in carphone warehouse will mean 0% success quite literally in removing it. So don't be stupid please and block them

Because once you get the cifas marker, much of your independence is jailed. But then you could be placed in jail for fraudulently purchasing products over the desk. CCTV will show your cooperating in store and you'll essentially be the bigger criminal in this case. If you need financial help, seek citizens advice or find a job.
