Sounds like a pretty accurate description...

Do you have a website? Just wondering if you have some where to
place your information related to what sort of payments you accept
and how people can pay you. That sometimes cuts through the BS. I
have had people ask me for my bank information too. They usually
just want to make a bank transfer. But I don't give that sort of
information out either. Especially if someone wants to wire me some
inmoney they can use Western Union to do it. Otherwise the PayPal
thing is very convenient.
I don't think your actions were rash at all. In fact I think you
were quite patient to even go past one email with him wanting your
bank information. The check thing is just plain weird. I wouldn't
worry about it. The next step is on him. Let him prove you got his
I find when people want you to operate outside your typical way of
doing business is a red flag to look out for. Sometimes it will be
just something new to learn. Usually, it is some foolishness you are
best to shut down as quickly as possible.
Take care and don't worry.
