Recieved this e-mail, once I got on Yahoo chat, \"John\" conducted an interview, then told me i got the job and it was a work from home job. I knew it was a scam but i went along with it to get information. He overnighted me a check and asked that I put it in my bank account and when the funds became available, I needed to transfer the money to a woman so that she could send me all my work equipment. I instally knew it was a scam. I got the check overnight and was bothered all day from them about cashing it, they were calling numerous times, and e-mailing me. Don\'t fall for it.
