Just had an extremely similar run in as Brice described- this “Travis” guy claims to be from Texas, and wants an “online arrangement” to send $500/week in exchange for constant erotic pictures and videos. I googled his name and number and found this site so just went along with it some more to see how far it would go... He asks for all financial information- even began demanding my social security number claiming he needed it for “security reasons to transfer funds.”
I blocked him after this as it was just getting too creepy and the tone of his messages changed to be angry.
Do yourself a favor- avoid this man and this phone number!
The phone number that texts is (469) 389-1590. This is allegedly a man frequenting Grindr that seeks younger men. He contacts them and says he would like to meet, then says he cannot as he is not very reachable. Then offers to send you $500 a week for sending nudes. The next part comes in where he says he needs your bank name, routing number, and account number. This man might be trying to extort you or establish identity theft. On Grindr his name appears as Travis.
