Scammers making it look like they are part of a big corporation

So the other day I saw an ad on Craigslist for a work at home position. What these scammers do is want you to think they are part of a big corporation and then want you to do payment processing. That involves you opening a bank account in your name, they send you a check, you cash it and then take money out and you send them some of it for their "fee's". These are fake checks that they give you and they will clear from the bank right away. The bank then a week later finds out the check is a fake then you are responsible for the money. Here is an example of a scam e-mail I received.
