It's a favourite of scammers. A BIG favourite of scammers. They know nothing about the job.. but then! They talk their way out of that.
Men on oil rigs don't have hours every day to talk to women...AND THEY DON'T NEED MONEY FOR ANYTHING.
NEXT TIME YOU ARE CONTACTED BY A MAN SAYING HE IS ON AN OIL RIG.... IT'S A SCAMMER..and in the end he WILL ask for money or cards or bank details..
DON'T BE SCAMMED
