For our younger members here let me explain this.
He/she is asking for you to make his brute a pupil, level it some (or not), and fight his level 8 (currently) brute. If you win he proposes giving you a dollar ($1.00).
If you pupil with an EXP giving pupil, you will level he/she brute higher. Thus you may be fighting an even higher level brute. If you level your brute up to level 5 to compete you also give 1 exp point to he/she brute for each level you obtain. That brute levels even higher. If you make a brute that does win. YOU MADE A AWESOME low level BRUTE.
As I see it, this is not a scam. Unless he/she don't pay a winner.
Then I will take action
