So I don't know if I should reply to this guy or not. For all I know, this could be illegal here in the US so I don't want to take any chances. Any advice on if I should ignore this email or reply to him?
Thank you Sing it, John, Wayne, and those of you who were polite in your answers, I had a feeling this was a scam but I wanted to get more input, so thanks.

Go With the Flow, you're rude and an idiot for calling somebody else naive. I just asked a simple question, no need to tear my head off about it.

Anything from a different country that starts with something like "I hope this finds you in good health" is bogus. Ignore it. I'm sure you'll get a few more of those from different 'companies' this year that read very similar

Scam - don't you see it?
Stop looking at Craigslist for jobs. Consider it scams list.
Anything to make money online from home is 100% scam.

Goodness gracious. I think schools should at least spend some time teaching kids about how everyone out there is trying to scam them.
Any checks you receive will be fake.
Or worse, you would be involved in a Money Laundering Scam.
The cops would show up at your door and they would not believe you did not know you were doing criminal activity. No one could be this naive.

100% Scam.

It is just the run of the mill fake check scam.

They will send you a check that is fake but looks real. You will be asked to cash it and send 90% of the proceeds overseas via Western Union. Then, a couple of weeks later, the check bounces. This leaves you on the hook for covering the check and possibly even facing criminal fraud charges yourself.

There are tons of "jobs" like this out there. They are all scams.
