Type of a scam Fake Check/Money Order

From nowhere, I received a text asking if I wan’t to have my car wrapped in vinyl advertising the XEROX Company. The sales pitch was that they would pay $500 weekly. They never asked for identity info (bank info, ss#) but did ask for a mailing address supposedly so they could send me my first check. However, the first check wasn’t just my payment, but it was suppose to be $2000 and I was suppose to withdraw the $1500 so I could pay the installer. They tell you upfront to wait for the check to clear, which contradicted my gut feeling. So, I electronically deposited the check. They kept bugging me about depositing the check, finally I replied yes, its deposited. The next day, he told me the check should’ve cleared and to withdraw the funds. Instead, I called my back and told them I suspected a scam with the check. They confirmed but my bank wasn’t happy about my ignorance. My account was frozen for almost 2 days and eventhough I had a large amount of cash available, I couldn’t do anything finally till the check is returned.
