But there would be a little help i would like you to render for me. I
instructed my secretary to include the apartment and caretaker fee to
the check you will receive because i am not around at present to pay

the check to your bank account. Deduct  $400 1 week  with extra $150

$1800 immediately you deposit the check Today in to your account
,deduct your money and send the rest money which is $1800  via western

Welcome to Scamwarners vick.thorpe,

You are 100% correct it is a scam.

The check / Money Order is fake or from a hacked account. Do not deposit or cash it.
Even if your bank tells you that the check/Money Order has cleared, it does not mean they will take responsibility for it when it is returned. They are required by law to give you access to money within a few days.

But later, when the check/Money Order goes to a clearance house or the original bank, the check/Money Order will be returned and you will be held responsible.

It can take days, weeks, or even months for the fraud to be discovered and you will be required to pay all of the money back, regardless of who sent the check/Money Order to you. The bank also may have you charged with 'Financial Fraud'.

I was also scammed. What do I do with this check? Their is also another person involved Bob Chiles fromFairfax Virginia. I started doing research as a lot of questions and no answers from Chan. Then Jennifer living in a apartment complex out of Oklahoma that was to be the rental agent looking for an apartment. Does this guy get away with this?

Welcome to Scamwarners suefar,

You can rip the check up and throw it away. The other option is to report it to the US Postal Inspector.

File a fraud report with the postal inspection service. You can also request an envelope from them and actually send them the check.
