    if you didn't do anything then you didn't do anything. what's the problem?

    the check still might come. don't deposit it. cut it up and throw it away.

    um. no.

    the scam is, a check comes, with instructions for you to send part of the amount to the shipping agent by western union.

    there are no computers.

    minutes after you send money by western union, the scammer has it. later your bank says the check was bad and you have to pay the bank for it.

    there are no computers.

    In most cases you are to have computer repair shop that people can bring in the computers for you to repair not to wait for them to ship it to you.
