Hello everyone! I am new to this forum and hopefully this fits within the guide lines. If you think I could post this anywhere else, please lead me that way!
So basically my roommate has been frantic lately. He’s been acting funny and asking me for money. Since I trust him, I let him borrow it. He’s paid me back before so I saw no issue with this. He claimed it was for “family matters”. Eventually he asked me if I could go with him to the store and money gram the $ to family members in the Philippines. Again, I saw no red flags with this because since he’s from the Philippines. I happily helped him out and sent the money gram for him.
Long story short, he’s admitted to me that the reason he needed to do it was because he fell for a sexual extortion scam online. He’s figuring out how to solve the issue, but I was wondering, will the receiver possibly be able to now have my information from sending the money gram? I do not want get involved in this persons scam and just want to make sure I am okay. I have searched google but there are no clear answers. Really I would just like to make sure my identity and address are not exposed.
Any info is appreciated, thank you all!
