Scam Description

Was told I was hired for a job and the company sent me a check for the startup saying I needed to purchase equipment from there vendor. Will use cashapp at first but cashapp wont work for long so they’ll ask for gift cards. Whatever you do make sure checks get cleared before you buy anything.
