She is 46 Years of age. 140lbs and 5.8ft. She speaks English fluently.We really need you to be honest and trust worthy in this Position.

When you get the check shred it. Do not contact them and do not answer any emails or calls from them.

This is my advice . . . if you do not yet have the checks, contact the police NOW that tell them what is up and then ask them if they want the checks once you get them. If they do not, shred them. Do not anwer any calls or emails from the scammer. They will only try and tell you that things are legit and try to get you to go forward with the transaction.
