He is a scammer.  LL are the only ones who can ban your account and they would email you officially explaining why.  Though letting someone else use your account is not sensible and you should change your password and take steps to stop that happening again.

The Lindens would never ask for payment - they would just ban you and send you an email with a very vague statement why - payment would never change their mind. Clearly a scam and if what you say is true I bet he won't be in SL much longer (As that has a good chance of getting him banned)

Heh...it's probably your brother logging in with an alt and giving you a hard time.  It is most certainly NOT Linden Lab.

  • Change your password
  • Un-check the "remember my password" box on your log in screen, and ALWAYS type in your password manually.
  • Password protect your account on your computer, too.  You don't want your brother coming by when you've stepped out for a snack and seeing what you've been up to.
