Mystery secret shopper

Victim Location 52240

Type of a scam Fake Check/Money Order

I received a check for $1600.00 along with a letter of instructions. First I was to deposit the check into my account and keep $600. Then I was to go to 2 stores from the list provided and purchase itune gift cards for $50 or $100 to total $500 at each store. Then I was to scratch off the backs and take pictures and text back to number that had been texting me frequently to verify whether I had received the money. The sentence structure, spelling and overall punctuation in the letter was very poor so I went straight to the police department and they verified the scam. Then I took the check and letter to my bank so they could give it to their fraud division.
