Re: Weird proposition from semi-friend
Step 1: Steal someone's bank login with a keylogger/ them being stupid.
Step 2: Find a "friend" or "new employee" to transfer the contents of their account to
Step 3: Tansfer the money and have "friend" forward it to western union, bitcoin, whatever.
Step 4: collect money as cash. "friend" is on the hook for all of the stolen money. Deny everything (or buy a bigger house in nigeria).
This scam is so incredibly common. They usually target people looking for "work from home" jobs or they recruit via spam emails. It's amazing how many people still go through with it.
