Scam Description

I was offered a job as a dog walker. I definitely dont think its legit. They said they would sent a check in the mail and to tell my address, phone, age and zip. Told me that I was to deduct my first week of pay out of it and spend the rest on supplies. And they said they were sending it via their financial manager. I have had people try to scam me before and they all use the same type of wording so this all stood out to me and I was like damn I was really hoping that this one would legit. But I stopped replying once they sent this message especially since it was the second message we had sent between us and they said they were moving down close to me.
