Seems shady, here is what has happened so far:
- job offer in newspaper, they are looking for a personal assistant, 10-15hrs/wk, $500/wk
- took job, didn't have to fill out any W-2s or anything
- gave them my name, email, and mailing address
- received a check for ~$1900, had a note to keep $250 of it, and send the rest to another person via walmart
- i did that
Now I'm thinking this seems very weird and I'll probably let him know I don't feel comfortable with this and just bail out. What does this look like to you guys?
