Then I searched this person, apparently he/she used the same EXACT story several times.
This person over pays you with a fake check, and asks you to wire money to another person, thus resulting in the other person getting your money, and you oweing your bank money!
I have not personally done it, but I researched it, and read several stories about it.
Just would like to warn everyone!!!
