Has anyone come accross a situation on Twitter where a man named Bill Evelyn offered to send you money? He asks you to buy an Amzaon gift card for $25 and send him the code he says he'll add money to it ($7000) and then show you how to transfer that to paypal? Any help would be great!

 

Thanks in adavance,

As you said in your title its a SCAM.

You won't get any money, all you will get is fake spoof paypal emails that tell you that you have to give him the gift card code before funds are released.

Funds won't be released as he has not paid and you will be scammed of the card money.
