    Just rip it up. Or better yet take it to the bank, and tell them you think it's a fradulent check.

    Would never even think about looking for a job on Craig's list.
    Not all job postings are scams. Our local Community Health Center posts jobs on craigslists. But I understand your POV and it's too bad that the bad apples make it bad for the legit ones.

    If you gave them anything like your SSN or address you just opened yourself up to identity fraud and in the nursing world, that's very dangerous because it can stop and hinder your pursuit to becoming an RN or anything higher than a CNA. If someone else uses your SSN and works and the IRS sees that, that's a whirlpool of trouble because it'll look like tax evasion when the income isn't reported at the end of the year. You better start taking the necessary steps so that 2 years from now you don't wind up in a mess.

    And giving our your bank information before you even meet someone face to face is next to crazy. At best you need to educate yourself in the ways of the internet because you'll be the one who faces the consequences. I understand that you were looking for work, but of course it sounded too good to be true. People here can only feel sorry for you and not really help you. Giving out information like that is a gold mind to these scammers and dangerous too. Good luck sorting out the mess and hopefully it doesn't come back two years from now to bite you.
