Type of a scam Fake Check/Money Order

I received the below email regarding needing a chef for 5 weeks. I received the 7 days menu and sent an invoice to book service. I’ve received the payment $1000 to book the service in addition to $3200 deposit to secure a local chauffeur service for transportation while in the city. I took the $4,200 check 8/19/20 to my bank representative First Horizon Julia on 4990 Poplar Memphis, TN and requested her to verified the account with thier The Bank of New York MellonI didn’t won’t any issues on my account because it was out of state service. She confirmed all was correct on 8/21/20. I advise the client service was confirmed with $1000 deposit and advise on the remainder deposit for the chauffeur service. The next day I was asked to Venmo account number #@lynn-xtopher the chauffeur deposit $3200 8/22/20. I received another call and text that they will need to cancel, keep the nonrefundable deposit private chef service $642 and Venmo the remainder balance $358. I went to Tunica Sheriff Department 5126 Old Mhoon Landing Tunica MS and filed a police report believing now this is a scam. On 8/25/20 First Horizon charged bank the $4,200 check that I had already sent the $3,200 to chauffeur service.
