Seriously people, if it sounds too good to be true, guess what? IT IS! No "employer" you have never met outside of the internet is going to send you a check for wages upfront and have you forward it on to someone else or back to them unless they are SCAMMING you. No one is going to buy your car, puppy or sofa on craigslist for three times what you are asking for it and let you keep $150 and send back the rest unless they are SCAMMING you! You did not win a sweepstakes you never entered and even if you did you shouldn't be sending them money unless, you guessed it, its a SCAM! Wake up people. This has been a PSA from your bank. That is all, goodnight.

You should add that your uncle that you never heard of died and left you a billion dollars through a bank in Zimbabwe

True, it should go without saying, but people fall prey to this everyday!
