Type of a scam Fake Check/Money Order

I inquired about mystery shopper position, I was contacted by email stating I have been hired and they would be sending envelope in the mail with instructions. I received the envelope with a check in the amount of $2,990 instructing to go to local apple store to complete a survey of the store and to buy two gift cards one for $1500 the second for $1100. The rest was my salary to complete the task. I received a few texts asking confirmation of the envelope. I immediately became suspicious, the return address was a Los Angeles, CA the postmark on the envelope was North Houston, TX and the cashiers check was from Chicago, Il. I contacted the company and they said it was a scam, not sent out by their company.

Response to question below "did scammer attempt to take money"; I’m under the impression they were going to have me send them the 2 gift cards. If I would have done this we (both my husband and I were contacted) would have been out at least $2690 or the whole $2990.

I received the envelop with a check in the amount of $2,985 instructing to go to local apple store to complete a survey of the store and to buy two gift cards one for $2000 the second for $650. The rest was my salary to complete the task. I received a few texts asking confirmation of the envelop. I immediately became suspicious, the return address was an Atlanta, GA, the postmark on the envelope was North Houston, and the area code was a San Diego area code. I contacted the company and they are a legitimate company conduction online surveys, however they do not conduct "mystery shopper" surveys.
