This is a form of bank robbery by proxy.
How this works is they get you to open a bank account in your name where you will be cashing their worthless checks and giving them the bulk of the money after you take your cut. Because the know you will be stupid enough to open the new account at your own bank, they also know the bank will take back the money you were paid for cashing those worthless checks and charge you with check fraud. Then you are stuck paying back all of the money you were stupid enough to wire off to these Nigerian thieves.
