Exclamation Anyone have expirence with this?

Hello everyone. I am new to the cleaning business. I know this is a site for property preservation and that is my Ultimate Goal, but for now I must start small. So I take on cleaning jobs just to get my feet wet and get in the door! I check All the websites I know of to look for work and apply when I feel like I can be of service to them. I have been responding via email with someone who wants me to clean their apartment. My problem is I'm kinda feeling "iffy" about this guy! Could be over reacting because of my back round in skip tracing, It just seems as though he is pressuring me for my info. Has anyone else had a dealing with someone like this? Please read the emails and let me know what you all think. Email start here.

of business check, which you will get soonest this is because i don't
want any delay in your cleaning service, I want the house to look as
clean as possible. I want you to know that I will be paying you $800
every 2 weeks if you are willing and ready to work for me; cleaning
the house. If you are interested in the work, I will instruct my
secretary to mail an upfront payment of $400 to you so as to know how
serious I am with the cleaning job I want you to do.


So as for my secretary to send the upfront payment to you; I will like
to have the below information so i can instruct her to send the
payment to you;

Everything sounds Great! I must make clear with you first, that my Husband and I work together. You will only pay me but he works with me because a lot of my jobs require a handyman. Also, will you need me while you are living in the apartment? Where is the apartment located?

You have nothing to worry about you will be meeting my secretary soon
and she will be taking you to the apartment that you will be working
on,so once you are there,you let me know if the $400 is OK as a week
payment and if its not,don't feel shy to inform me cause i will surely
add more as long as you can work for me to my satisfaction and I do
like people that are very honest and trustworthy so just make sure in
everything you do with me you are honest with me so i will be happy to
employ you or 2 years if you can work with me for that long..Just get
back to me if you got my message...Thanks!!
just get back to me with your information

There are several variants of this to be found if you google "apartment cleaning scam". I imagine this check mailed to you will be higher than the $400 and they will tell you to keep the $400 and mail the rest back to them in Nigeria.
