How does Cash App Sugar Daddy Scam Work: Step-By-Step

How does Cash App Sugar Daddy Scam Work

Here’s a step-by-step guide explaining how the sugar daddy scam works:

Total Time: 1 minute

Step 1: Finding Potential Victims

Scammers search Instagram using terms like “sugar daddy cash app” to find potential victims who might be interested in becoming sugar babies.

Step 2: Initiating Contact

The scammers contact the potential victims through direct messages on Instagram, complimenting their pictures and expressing interest in being their sugar daddy.

Step 3: Requesting Information

Once the victim agrees to be a sugar baby, the scammer asks for two pieces of information: the victim’s email and Cash App details.

Step 4: Fake Confirmation Email

Shortly after providing the requested information, the victim receives an email that appears to be from Cash App, confirming that they have received a certain amount of money from their sugar daddy.

Step 5: Clearance Fee Request

The email states that in order to access the money, the victim needs to pay a clearance fee. The fee amount can vary but is typically around $50 or $100.

Step 6: Fake Justification

The victim might question why they need to pay a fee when they were expecting to receive money. If they contact the scammer on Instagram, they are told that the money has already been sent, and the clearance fee is required to release the funds.

Step 7: Fake Cash App Email

Although the email appears legitimate, upon closer inspection, the sender’s email address is not from Cash App but is designed to look like one (e.g., service@cashappshop@gmail.com).

Step 8: Paying the Clearance Fee

If the victim falls for the scam, they send the requested clearance fee to the scammer’s provided payment details, believing it will unlock their promised sugar baby funds.

Step 9: Blocked and Loss of Money

Once the scammer receives the clearance fee, they block the victim, cutting off all contact. The victim loses the paid clearance fee and realizes they will never receive the promised funds.

The scammer posing as a sugar daddy will usually offer an allowance to the victims having them agree to one condition: the sugar baby has to do a favor first.

However, in reality, the funds never leave the scammer’s account and thus leaving the sugar baby to pay for their own money.

Example Dialogue of How the Cash App Sugar Daddy/ Mommy Scam Works

The safest way to transfer money between Sugar Daddy and Sugar Babies is through third-party apps like Cash App as the transactions are instantaneous and cannot get a refund unless the other person sends it back.

The Sugar Baby knows about it and so does the scammer, hence they will try their best to avoid Payment apps and instead opt to go for Credit card payments which have many loopholes and ways to go around.

Here is a potential Scenario of how Cash App Sugar Daddy Scams may play out:

  1. Sugar Baby: Hey Daddy, could you pay my allowance on Cash App?
  2. Sugar Daddy: Sure. Can you send me your $Cashtag?
  3. Sugar Baby: Here it is $xxxxx

As mentioned above, scammer will try their absolute best to move away from payment apps that are usually secure and safe.

Sugar Daddy:

  1. Baby, unfortunately, my Cash App account has reached its limit for the month. Can I pay by another method?
  2. I have trouble sending the funds. However, I can add the money directly to your Cash wallet. I just need your Cash App login credentials to fund your account.

They will absolutely try anything to avoid you using Cash App because they are hard to be used for scams and try to use Gift Cards.

See the thing with Gift card is that, once it is redeemed, the scammer will block you and disappear along with the funds in your Cash App account as they are fraudulent and once they are figured out by the card owner, they will charge back leaving the victim losing money in the end.

2nd Scenario of Cash App Sugar Daddy Scam

Another scenario of how the Cash App Sugar Daddy Scam works: The scammer finds their victim looking for a sugar daddy and gives time to nurture a relationship. After some trust is built, the scammer will ask to pay off your credit card balance.

Too often, the victim usually agrees and asked for the victim’s credit card account credentials information and will then add some funds into the victim’s account from fraudulent accounts, appearing to have paid off the credit card debt for the time being.

After the initial step, the scammer will ask you to purchase gift cards (any gift card will do such as – Apple iTunes cards, Google Play cards, Walmart, or Target Gift cards) which are redeemable remotely.

In most cases, the victim will accept and buy the cards and send the Gift Card codes to the scammer – still posing as a Sugar Daddy. (i mean you have to remember that someone just paid off their credit card debt).

If they fail to comply and do not buy the Gift card – send them the codes, they are usually threatened with blackmail.

This is where things take turn for the worse, the account that is used to pay off your credit card debt is fraudulent, and once the credit card company figures it out and catches on, the deposited funds and paid debt will disappear from your bank account, leaving you on the lost with the newly purchased gift cards entirely up to the victim balance.

According to the Business Insider investigation, they found that the scammers posing as sugar daddies were targetting and quick to exploit people’s isolation and financial vulnerability during the COVID-19 lockdown.
