Type of a scam Fake Check/Money Order

I filled out application to be a mystery shopper on my phone, through a pop up add on one of the games on my phone. Thought it would be something I could do as a sort of second job to earn extra money for the up coming holiday season. I didn’t hear anything back from them, so I figured that they didn’t want to use me. Then today this envelope showed up in a priority overnight envelope from FedEx. I opened it and the documents in the image I posted were there. They are a very real looking cashier’s check for $2,620.00 from CreditHuman bank in San Antonio, Texas. The remitter for the check was a man named Paul T ***. I also received a letter from InterShop International, Inc. Thanking me for joining. Also signed by Paul T ***, Research Manager. Telling me I needed to deposit or cash this at my bank and from there I was supposed to keep $500 for my pay and visit two Walmarts to get $1000 worth of Walmart gift cards at each. They wanted me to scratch the back of each card and take a pic of the cards front and back as well as a pic of the receipt. And either text it to (864)301-*** or email them to [email protected] . Then they would email me a survey to take about my shopping experiences at these stores.

I called the bank that this check was from. They checked on it and said no this is a fraudulent check. The CreditHuman Bank had me send a picture of the check to their fraud department.
