Type of a scam Employment

I was contacted to accept a Virtual Assistant position with Snap On Tools on LinkedIn by Tonia Jenkins via the LinkedIn messaging app. The job sounded perfect for me, so I gave my contact information. I was informed that I would be sent a check for $2,950.00 that was to cover my first week of work, plus the software and printer that I needed to complete the job. I received the check on 8/13/2019 and made the deposit the next morning. The funds were made available when I checked my bank app on 8/15/2019 at 7:00 a.m. Tonia contacted me via text to walk me through these steps, down to the address, routing number, account number and name of the person that I was to make the wire transfer to. I made the transfer via my bank app on the morning of 8/15/2019 and when I checked my account later to make sure the transfer went through so I could pay my bills, and discovered that I was over $2,484.57 over drawn at the bank. Apparently, when the transfer hit the Federal Reserve it was flagged as unusual activity, I was informed that I should file a police report (I did) and file a fraud claim with my bank (I did). I remain over drawn. Her profile on LinkedIn has been removed, as well as the job posting and her message to me via LinkedIn. I DO have her email to me, and her text messages, as well as the envelope from Fed Ex that she sent the check to me. This is check fraud, mail fraud, employment fraud and probably other things. Please don’t fall for this!
