Experienced same thing, from the same person (as he mentioned his name was), but I stopped and immediately made a research for the scam when they required me to buy something and use my debit card.

Type of a scam Employment
I was contacted by someone identified as the "Hiring Desk" of "Roche Holdings AG." The individual at the hiring desk informed me that they reviewed my resume and that I was qualified for a position with their company. I was then contacted by a "Michael Drew," who then told me about the history of the company and what their expectations of me were (obtaining office equipment and computer software with monies forwarded to me by the company). I was then forwarded a check, which I deposited in a bank account opened by me for this purpose. Mr. Drew asked why I hadn’t deposited the funds in my previously existing bank account. At this point I became suspicious. The bank in which I opened the new account put a hold on the check representing the funds (at this point I discontinued my correspondence with Mr. Drew) and later returned the check, informing me that it was fictitious. I have heard nothing from Roche Holdings AG ever since.
