Recently met this guy and is apparently a sugar daddy and wants me to be his sugar baby! I’ve heard about this but I’ve never actually thought about doing it myself or thought about it in depth.
The guy said that if I buy a steam card worth £50 and then send him the activation code he will then start sending me money weekly (I have to send a code each time I get paid) and all we have to do is just talk..
am I being scammed? I actually think I wanna try it and see what it’s about but then I don’t wanna be scammed £50.
I wanna hear about steam cards, sugar daddies and all this?
Should I just block and leave him? I’m intrigued...

Side note- I’m 21 and from the UK, he’s 28 from the US

Am I missing some logic here?

Why the tf can't he just send you £50?

And this is a weird way of doing it. There are specific websites for this sort of stuff. Though it's not my area and I know little about it.

He is trying to scam you. The activation code (i think) would give him the money and every time you do it he will get more and more money. If you want an actual sugar daddy they will never ask you to do this and will (i thin) do it via paypal or some other app. If you did go and do it and he wanted a higher price like 30 £20 steam cards (don't know if that exists) the shop your buying from will tell you that your probably being scammed and should not do it.

Hopefully that helps!!!! Also if situations like this occur I would suggest researching about it on Youtube. People explain how not to get scammed and how actually to earn money.

Thread is 1 year old and gift cards are a common way for scammers to get your money.

The same thing happened to me.. I bought a 100 dollar steam card and sent him the code but he claimed that the code didn’t work and he wanted me to buy another one before I got my money… he sent me a picture of the receipt from western union and told me he would sent me the MTCN code if I sent him the code of the steam card to gain his trust
