Getting a check mailed to me

Recommended Posts

so I was messaged by a potential client on freelancer.com and I went through the whole entire interview process and everything answered about 20 to 30 questions over the phone typing and then they told me that I had to have a checking account a specific checking account for them to mail me a check for me to deposit into my account for my working materials and equipment. Last time I had this happened it turned out it was fraudulent and a scam and illegal is this normal for a job or not. I don't know what to do.

Yeah that sounds like a scam to me. I'd report them to Freelancer right away.
