This is rather in the nature of a public service, although when all is said and done, perhaps I’ll have something to say as well. There’s a scam out there where someone is posing as a sperm donor seeking his offspring. Here’s the deal. Bottom line is that anyone contacted by someone calling himself “Steven Curtis” ought to be extremely skeptical and cautious.
I have to say that as scams go, this one seems extremely disturbing. I’ve been contacted by countless people around the world needing my banking information to transfer millions of dollars through my accounts. Those appeal to simple greed and are doubtless motivated by greed, too. They’re annoying and I suppose some people do get ensnared, but there’s nothing terribly personal about them.
This scammer might have some ultimate plan to get money, I suppose, but presumably is targeting those who are or who think they might be donor conceived. As such it seems to me he could do much more damage than just obtaining bank account numbers. Please do take care.
