Has any one got the check and cashed it and if so did they get in trouble.

how do i know that something is a scam?

I recieved something along this same line but it was from a man name Kelvin and he says that he is in Ireland and owns a electronics and clothing store and is in the process of opening one up here in the us. He needs a Personal assistant for His mail and shopping. He says that he will provide all necessary funds and that I can even open the packages to confirm that they are legit. Just not sure if it is legit?

personal assistant scam

it's not legit. it's simply an effort to get you to cash counterfeit checks, purchase the goods, and mail them to the counterfeiter. you will only get yourself into an uncomfortable situation at your bank, post office, etc.

I got the same email, except his name David Lucas:
