Of course it is hard to be absolutely certain, but this does sound like a scam that was going around a couple of years ago...

The bottom line is you are required to process their "customers" payments through your bank. You receive a payment, deposit to your account, then send them 90% of the total deposit...then, days later,the payment turns out to be bogus...in fact, one variation I heard of, the payments were in the form of charges to stolen credit cards...

I get several of these a week. Some of the perpetrators have even begin posting them as job ads on Craigslist (where they are promptly flagged off).

Ask yourself... would a legitimate employer find their employees by sending millions of random spam emails? And if not, why would they have randomly chosen YOU?

Totally ignore anything like this.
