I regret to inform you that, after previewing the photos of your wife, I will have to decline future employment with you. She is, unfortunately, not up to my standards. I went ahead and cashed your check. Thanks for nothing.

Obviously, stay clear of any type of scam like this.
If you want any more info on how this works, or how to possibly follow-up, PM me.
Absolutely. I work for a bank, and it always amazes me how many variations of the same scam. What kills me are the members of the senior community that actually fall for wire scams. I can only assume that in this case the individuals in question don't fully understand that they're targeting a group of people that have (in some cases) access to all kinds of databases. Regardless, since all information provided is probably false, it usually doesn't yield a positive outcome. I've never seen this particular angle (which doesn't mean much) but when I do stumble across something like this, I usually forward to my fraud department. Otherwise, I suppose you could use link to report this and maybe give a general heads up.
