Scam Description

Started out as a job ad posted on LinkedIn. I receieved an email reply from “Heather Pantalone” owner of Drill Fever in Oklahoma – asking for basic details (full name, location, availability) as well as basic interview questions. I replied but got suspicious and found Heather Pantalone on Facebook. I sent a Facebook message and the real Heather Pantalone confirmed its a scam. Several days later i got a follow up email informing me a check for 2850 is going to be mailed to me and i must deposit only. This is supposed to be for errands. Today a check arrived! Its from a legitimate business in new jersey and im not sure if theyre also being scammed bevause it was mailed from Houston TX. I dont know what to do.
