Kindly beware of these kind of mails ...... One suggestion: Do not provide details unless you can connect with the individual via phone and its imp to do a bit of background check , as much as possible.
If you cannot do a confident background check , then you should definately meet the person , without giving your complete name. You can use a nick name.
You need to be safe when dealing with all this , thus protect yourself by not letting out much info...

Hi,

Thanks for quick response.
I have the fake check that this person sent and it is more than what I had asked for. He also asked me to deposit the check and provide the difference to him/her. I have done that. Should I take this check to police and report the scammer?
