If you got a random email from someone you never heard of offering you a high paying job, it's a scam. Photographers don't get hired that way. A classic Nigerian scam involves someone offering you a job with a prepayment and you are asked to wire back the overpayment via Western Union. The cashier's check you get will be fake and the money you wire will be very real.
