Hmm, what's the catch?

Ah, of course. It's a variation on the Nigerian scam, isn't it?

Instead of a Nigerian prince, claim to be Elon Musk. Send me a little bit of your money now, and I promise to give you much more in return later.

And by using crypto currency, you'll never be able to claw it back or catch the scammer behind it.

Only vaguely. But it does ring a bell.
