Yes, I have been contacted by this gentleman. He wanted to fund my project in the United States. He wants me to set up an offshore bank account. I am skeptical of his funding practice and do not feel comfortable working with this gentleman. I feel he is a scam artist. I cannot find much information about him except he has a Facebook page. He claims to be a Doctor of some sort. But I can't find out the type of doctor.

Dr. Hayashi Hikoo is not legit, and nor is anyone claiming to represent Dr. Hayashi Hikoo.
If you have been approached by entities claiming to represent Dr. Hayashi Hikoo, do not respond to them. And if you have been in contact, cease communication immediately.
This is a "too good to be true" scam where, in order to receive investment, you will be asked to invest your own money in Dr. Hayashi Hikoo. Do not do this. It is a scam.
Here is a bunch of very useful information about recognizing online investment scams (from the US Securities and Exchange commission). Please familiarize yourself with it!
