And i want you to know that the rest of the money will be used to get house accomodation beside your location for my son and his nanny and any other arrangement for the lesson so that the tuition can be able to conveniet for both of you,as soon as you get the check cash you will deduct cost of price of the lesson and send remaing balance to my son's TICKET AGENT so that they can book for their flight ticket to come to U.S.

Sounds like money laundering scams.....you cash a fake check, take your "tutoring" fee, and give them the rest. There was a ring of undergrads here at MSU that got caught.
