Ha! the old check scam, yeah i know those scams very well. once i was scammed by a job this is how it went down:
One day I got a replied message from a couple claiming to be from england, the following day they told me they were going to be moving close to my
hometown and they were going be needing a "Helper" because the wife was pregnant and the Husband was going to be busy doing business work traveling
for a few months.
In my case they needed me to do a little shopping for them, they gave me a list of things like groceries ect. and a check would arrive next week.
The following week i recieved a check from the mail of about $10,000 so that i can deposit into my account. I was blown away at the time
But I patiently waited for their reply since i had a few more questions.
When I finally got a reply from them it seemed very very fishy because it was TOO straight foward. and then he asked me to send him a portion of his
money back to him because one of his other bank accounts failed or something. Thats were it seemed very strange.
Then after a while investigating i realized it was a scam, the check was sent from wisconsin and everything was fake.
