Of course its bogus!

AUTHOR: FloridaNative - ()

You can tell from the email that it is a scam. It has every red flag that the FTC(dot)gov site mentions in their fake check scams.

The fact that they said you can cash it at an ATM is a huge red flag! Using Western Union or MoneyGram is another big red flag.

Glad you reported it. I hope no one falls for this scam.
