Customer Question

Hi I've been asked to pay a deposit under ESCROW of a Corporate re-diversion fee in regard to trading some Carbon Credits. Is this a scam or normal?

Customer: replied 2 years ago.

I own some Carbon credits which are not easily traded, so I found out.

I have been approached by a company, out of the blue, who have offered to sell my Carbon Credits to a third party for a fixed amount but are demanding an upfront deposit for corporate re-diversion fees to enable the transaction to proceed. They state 75% of the fee is refundable.

Is this a scam or is it a genuine way to proceed with this type of deal?
