Is this a scam?

**Edited for Community Guidelines**

 

 

I just want to know if this member is trying to scam me so I can report them if he is. Also he requested I send my private information to a clerk.com domain and upon looking that domain up I found several scam domains and it is even listed on ftc.gov website. Once I confronted this user with the scamming emails from both ftc.gove website and 419scam.org they went offline and I presume blocked me. I believe this is a scammer.

Other emails from the same domain listed as scammer emails.

Yes. It is one of the oldest going. You should report it to CS.
