    even if you do manage to successfully cash it, bank will revoke the funds a few days later & charge you a nice fee for the bullshit you tried. its a well known scam. you might be unlucky enough to get authorities visit you & investigate what you are trying to do.

    or dont listen to us and learn a lesson the hard way.

    I am fully aware of that. Thats why I am asking if there is a way around that, like at a check cashing place or something.

    Its a fake check I also have recieved one in 2015 after applying for a position. Remember anything that seems too good to be true must be fake.

    go on google search
    "check cashing <your city>"
    there's probably 20+ locations you can visit.
    but i don't recommend it. throw the fake check in the trash & move on.

    It's not like a check cashing place would accept it. A business based around cashing checks from questionable people is going to verify the funds before they send you money.

    I'm not going to call you a retard although the mere notion of this is retarded. You know its fake, they will know its fake. What are you going to say when they question you. "Oh I got sent it for no reason from some person I dont know and have never done anything for, figured it was my lucky day" I assume you have a bank account, If this turns into a police matter which it could very well do, they will probably ask questions like why didn't you cash this at your bank. What are you going to say... "I thought it was fake so i didn't want to go to my bank"

    You're not a retard you're just a human being. One that has not been around the block with regards to this issue it seems. So dont fall victim to typical human emotions like greed and take everyone's advice and just put it in the trash. In fact take video of it burning and post it here so that we can all sleep well at night knowing you didn't do such a retarded thing :)
