Hailey, wish it were true, but...
This is a classic "411" scam*, he wants you to eventually cough up bank info for the funds transfer, which once he has that, he can send a bank request to take money out of your account.
"If you don't have much money..." e.g. "I won't bother scamming you..." what a maroon...
If this was through a PM on the board, report it to the admins, who then could, and possibly should, send it to the FBI fraud unit.
*411 refers to the prefix in Algeria where a large number of these types of scams originated.
