I think it is a scam. First they r asking you to cash a check take out your money and forward rest to some unknown. Second, I noticed any time they use USD in their ads, it is a scam. I read somewhere alot of these scams r coming from overseas. I heard especially Russia

100% FAKE. they sent you a "check" for something you did NOT do. ask you to send it back to them, take your cut and do it quickly. its called MONEY LAUNDERING.

It sounds like something my friend's done in the past actually, which turns out to be a scam, that sadly no one could really help him with. I wouldn't go for for it.
