so I got one of those emails - and I finally read it.
basically it said that taxes are so high on imports that if they had someone in the states process their payment then they would save like a 24% tax. So cash the check, deduct your 10% and mail them a check for the rest.
Fishy - I know. Whatever - but I was feeling cocky and was like, ok, sure send me a check that's cool - thinking they would ask me for some personal info, but all they asked for was my address.
lo and behold last week I get a check for 4800 bucks made out to me.
So, I deposited it and decided to wait to make sure it goes through and then, if and when it does, I'll mail them the balance.
Now, I'm kind of getting nervous...
is this against the law?
if the check ends up being bad - they can't do anything to me can they?
