Burn the check!

I don't know if this is the right place to post this, but I would like to inform of you that I have been contacted by a "client" who asked me to translate some articles and insisted to pay me in advanced, a day or 2 after depositing the check he contacted me saying that there was a problem and wanted me to reimburse him of the money. Till here everything was ok...
At this point three things were in fact already wrong:
1) Your new client insisting on paying for the whole job in advance
2) You accepting such arrangement
3) Your client wanting you to reimburse him the money
This is a very old scam, a well known one, as mentioned by another member above.
