This person contacted me in response to my resume posted on craigslist. Seems a little fishy to me, what do you think?

These were sent through craigslist's email forwarding service.

It's a scam, he wants you to send fake cheques to other scam victims.

As sending fake cheques through the post is a crime in the US, it won't be risk free for you when you are found to be the one sending them

Please do not tell scammers that they are listed here - it will take them seconds to change their fake details and their new details will not be listed for any future victims to find.

This is a scam. The person wanting to hire you is West African, not American, and the checks he wants you to print are fake. Payroll businesses in the USA are regulated and do not hire people to work at home printing checks or hire without an interview.

Did you forget that you asked the same question last year? viewtopic.php?f=4&t=73035&p=169057#p169057

To save you wasting everyone's time and returning in 2015 with the same question, ANY job that involves printing cheques and sending them to people is a scam.
