A scammer uses the name of Chinavasion, a legal company based in China, to conduct scams.
How the scam works:
1) Scammer sends you checks.
2) You will deduct 10% from the check amount as your commission.
3) Then you remit CASH to his other account.
What happens is that the check that is sent to you will be fakes. And if you send him CASH thinking that the check will be cleared, that is a big mistake.
There are other “problems” in the email, such as spelling mistakes(eg. the word “electronices”), and the use of free email addresses. It does not make sense for a China company to email you using an email address from ohio.edu.
