The whole thing is shady but you never know...

I've never heard of a "IM Interview" for anything that didn't involve a webcam. Keep us posted.

The $1950 check they send you will bounce in a few weeks. You'll be left with a giant hole in your account, while they walk away with the difference (~$1600).

But yeah, looks legit.
