Greetings friends, I hope life and these words have found you well.

A few days ago I received a friend request on Instagram. I don't normally accept friend requests from people I don't really know, but this page was interesting. Private page so only their friends could see the full profile, all I could see in this current non-friend status was the words "The Illuminati". I was intrigued so I left the request in limbo for a couple of days but today I ultimately accepted their friend request. Upon me approving the person's friend request, I received a message. I have posted screenshots from our conversation below.







If I posted these images incorrectly or are too large I apologize, this was the only way I could get my work computer to post them as the button to post directly on the site wasn't working.

So, I'm thinking this is obviously some sort of scam as I highly doubt the illuminati would recruit like this, but what kind of scam is it? Whatsapp would protect their anonymity but reveal mine if I sent my phone number as requested. I am intrigued but the last thing I want is to be scammed have to explain to my wife where all the money went. I could hear her now... What do you guys think?

That was interesting...Thanks for sharing.

I think you're right about it being a scam.

You should contact them back with more questions and share.

I'm awaiting their response to my last message, nothing as of yet. I am reluctant to share my phone number, maybe if I had a burner phone.

It is mean if it is faking making you think you are special, reminds me of recruiting a suicide bomber or something. lol

Suggestion: Give them zero personal information or fake it. Personally, I think dropping this would be the best overall approach.

The language is suspect.
English is not the writer's first language.
I'm guessing you're actually speaking with someone in Asia.

The atrocious grammar screams "SCAM" in every way possible.
I would think a member of the Illuminati would be a bit more literate.

Don’t give that bs any info about u.
Spelling mistakes and grammar issues scream, foreign scam.

If you want to join the Illuminati just go to their website Illuminati website

At least if you go to that site and send them your money, you will get an Illuminati pocket book, and a certificate saying your a member!

There is an old saying about "If it sounds too good to be true". That saying is still around because it is correct.

Loading that app he had you load might have been a really poor idea.

If this were half legit they know loads about you already and have your phone number or numbers.
You would have been contacted by phone, or maybe even in person.

Never give any info if you have doubts in your gut.

Here is a test:

Use your phone to access your bank and see it there is still money in your account the next day.

It's bull#. Delete them and give them no personal information.

I’m not giving them any info nor did I really load the app, I didn’t think it was an actual recruiter for the brotherhood of light haha. I just think it’s an odd setup for a scam. He’d prolly make more money randomly calling senior citizens, claiming to be “The Government” and demand their social. I’m not poking fun at older folks but I know my grandmother would have told anyone her info had they claimed to be someone of importance. Odd to use the Illuminati to scam, just seems like that would limit your potential victim pool to a smaller puddle of people who are familiar with the organization they are speaking of.
