Type of a scam Employment

A representative by the name of Cathy Beeker sent an email with a work from home job offer (one that I never applied to) that sounded way to good to be true. There was no interview and they wanted to hire me ASAP. The contact number listed was never answered and the voicemail was automated. After accepting the job, they requested that I create a yahoo account. They sent me a check to use for supplies I would need to work from home, the check was fraud and I was held accountable for it with my bank.
