Type of a scam Fake Check/Money Order

I have received multiple calls from 314.534.7610 in the past few weeks. I do not answer and they do not leave messages. Then I received a priority mail with a check for $2900.42 from St Louis Community Credit Union. There is a sheet with instructions to deposit the check, purchase ebay gift cards, collect information, scratch off the cards and complete a survey as a secret shopper. I called the Credit Union, they are aware of the scam and have acknowledged it on their website. I was informed to shred or tear up the check and disregard.

*Note the language in the instructions is incorrect. Several grammatical errors are detectable i.e. Congratulations for your achievement! The present package contains…Visit any one of the above Stores around you sell this cards. etc
