Type of a scam Employment

I received and responded to [email protected] email copied and pasted below, the links no longer work. When I responded it seemed legitimate because the Kmart logo was there. Then I received a text from number +1 (501) 232-0576 with name referenced as Michael Archer informing me that I qualified as a Secret Shopper and to reply to the text confirming receipt. Last Thursday, February 25th I received my second text from same number and same person Michael Archer saying First assignment have been delivered to your mailbox via USPS check your mailbox for evaluation package and confirm receipt of this text. The package Mr Archer referenced to was delivered to my home address on Saturday, February 27th and enclosed was a check dated February 24, 2016 in the amount of $2,920.00 along with two pages of instructions, see the attached pdf of all the information I received. My hope is by reporting this scam that no one falls for this phony set up.
