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.

Hi!

Please ensure that you submit an Abuse Report against the other user immediately.

This is done through the viewer by clicking on Help - Report Abuse. 

Include the text of the messages that were sent to you by the other user.  The fields on the AR are limited, so please feel free to submit multiple AR's if you need to, in order to include the text from the chat.

You will receive an automated confirmation email within 5 minutes after your report is submitted. 

The Governance Team will then investigate your report as quickly as possible.

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)

Especially if you submit an AR right now to let LL know about the scammer.  Do it now.

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.
