I'm in contact with an individual who wants to send me money. I'm wary about this so I decided to ask here.
He wants to email me a photo of a check and for me to use that to deposit money into my account. I don't plan to click any links and I'm going to mouse over every link to double check. He hasn't asked for any personal details (SSN, etc.), only for my email address. I haven't received the picture yet so that's all the information I have.
Does this sound suspicious? I have an inkling it might be a scam but decided to see it through a little farther.
UPDATE: They want me to deposit the check and send them a picture of the deposit confirmation. Off the top of my head I seem to remember having that contain some sensitive information.
