Wescom Credit Union- IMPOSTOR

Type of a scam Fake Check/Money Order

I recieved a cashiers check for $2,350 today (Thursday,11th day of October 2018) via USPS PRIORITY MAIL from Wescom Credit Union. The credit union is located in California. The actual address is 123 South Marengo Ave, Pasadena Ca, 91101. I live in Greenville SC and work in law enforcement for the state of SC. I’m pretty sure this is a scam. I’ve been on hold for over two hours and am pretty sure I’ll get no answer. I have never heard of Wescom until today. I had to google the number to call. I can’t make the signature out however, it begins with a "D". When calling Wescoms number it will allow you to put in the account number that’s on the bottom of the check and hit pound (per voice in automated system). At that point it will tell you the account is not located to wait for the next available customer service agent and will then say they are experiencing high call volumes. Also, if you just type Wescom into google the first thing that comes up is the credit union/phone number however, the second and third lines are sites to report fraud to the actual credit union. Which I’m not sure if it exists or not. I would attach the check but there is personal info on it. Please beware if you get a white USPS 12.5 x 9.5 cardboard envelope, with only a cashiers check in it addressed to someone in your household. The check is dated 10/05/2018 and was recieved as I said before on 10/11/2018. I also did a search for them in my email and no Wescom was in my mail or spam.
