I almost got scammed!

Last Update: July 15, 2017

So I made my perfil in a website called care.com. Which you can find jobs as baby sitting or pet sitting. I "girl" contacted me and told me that she was moving to my home town and she needed a pet sitter. She wanted to pay me $20 per hour because the job was also going out to run with the dog called "cookie" and everything. We set up a meeting on sunday (tomorrow) She told me that she really needed me so she send me a check with all the money because she wanted to be sure that I was taking the job. When I got the check she told me to make the deposit to my account and I did (fool me) Yesterday she told me that I could keep $400 but she needed me to take out of my account the rest of the money and send it to "the dog's supply" via moneygram or a cash deposit. I said no, that it didnt sound right, so I went to my bank and they told me that probably the check was fake, and that I will be able to know on tuesday. The girl wanted ME TO TAKE MONEY OUT OF MY ACCOUNT THAT I DID NOT HAVE TO GIVE IT TO HER!!!!! because when I checked my bank account online I had the money that she "gave me" but the check has no founds. Thanks god I did not spend that money!

Ps: I went to watch spiderman yesterday and I didn't like it D:

You did great! I tell you, when people you don't know ask you to send money through Moneygram or Western Union, never do it!
