Just a little heads up...the company I work for was ripped off in a scam just like this one...essentially, they get a hold of a corporate check via the USPS mail and then scan it, and alter the amount to a much higher dollar figure. The altered check is sent to an innocent person (like all of us that received the e-mail) and it gets cashed. The innocent person takes a small cut of the check - and then sends on the big balance to another person up the ladder. Sadly, there are people out there that think this is legal, or they are desperate for money and fall into the trap. The best thing to do is simply delete the e-mails. Sad that someone would use this website for something illegal.
