A check scam, they will send you a check (stolen or fake) for a large anount, and encourage you to send 90% to them as soon as possible.

When the check comes back as bad, you are out of pocket and in trouble for passing a bad check.

Wow! I need you and thank you for the information.

I am SO GLAD YOU BURST MY BUBBLE

So I can close this chapter with no more fretting, right? Thanks so much for your help.
