Type of a scam Fake Check/Money Order

Initial email indicates that KMart is searching for secret shoppers. Presented as a part-time position, and asks that full name and address be submitted to show if you’re interested in the position. A few days later a package sent via USPS arrives with a check intended for compensation ($300), spending money ($100), 2 Western Union money transfers ($1,050 each + 50 service fees = $2,550), and instructions to deposit the check, and wait for it to clear, then do the assignment. Fortunately, I checked with a co-worker who remembered the scam rearing it’s ugly head about 4 years ago. So, I called the bank that was supposed to have cut the check, and they verified that they keep records of all their checks issued and they did not cut that check. Though I sent an email that I was in receipt of the package, and will comply with instructions for the position of secret shopper, I did not follow through with the transactions.
