That depends on how much of a friend he is. If you know him in real life and like him, sure. If not, well, then there's no real answer. I wouldn't recommend it, but there's no way I can know.

People are getting more disgusting by the day, people will even try to scam nx during a GM event. Here are two NX scams to watch out for.

Name: My Dad works for Nexon!
Intro: So you want some facestompers but just can't afford it buying mesos is not an option, and you are not funded, what to do?
Situation A: You see a smega saying something along the lines of: My Dad works for Nexon 5 free items free wisp me
You: Hey so i get 5 items for free?
Person: Yah, all you have to do is give me your user, pass, and pin, and I'll have the items placed in your inventory!
You: _________ ______ ____
Person: Okay just tell me when you to log off and the items will be placed in your inventory ^.^

So you try logging on one day, and your Pin is invalid, huh?
Your account has been stolen, sorry.

Situation B:So theres a smega: Wow thanks nexon for 25k free nx! www._______,tk (i usually see ,tk at the end of these sites)
25k nx? Whats the harm of checking out the site? So you type in the link and oh, you have to login your username and pin before you visit the site. So you login (I'm personally not sure what comes after this because i have avoided loging in, but i knew it was a scam when i smegad not to do it and the guy whipered me and called me a " mother ****ing **** sucker"
Basically the scammer will pin hack you or guess your pin (survey showed 60% of peoples pins are 1337 and the second majority was their birth year, 1994 1995 1993 etc.)

If you truly want nx, work for your money by babysitting or tutoring and earn the nx, or use the MTS. ( There is guide on the MTS I just don't know how to post the link, which will show you how to make nx)
