Shred it.

Anyone who sends you an unsolicited check and then asks you to send them money from it, especially if they are requesting you to wire it, is running a scam. The check is no good and if you cash it, you will be liable for the money from your bank. Shred it. If you are unsure contact the bank listed on the check, give them the check number and info, they will tell you if it is good or not.

Tear it up.

You can try sending it to the attorney general for the state from which the check was sent. Or you could just shred it and forget about it. Either way, DO NOT deposit.

This is good to know because I have never encounter this kind of scam where you get a check.

Buy some paste and use it for wallpaper. Whatever you do, do NOT take it to the bank. It is as phony as a three-dollar bill.
