This is a clever ploy designed to steal your money. If someone you don't know wants to pay you by check but wants you to wire some of the money back to them, it's a scam. There is no legitimate reason for someone who is giving you money to ask you to wire money back to them. This type of scam could cost you thousands of dollars.
