Of course it's a scam. 1. They want you to send them money via western union. 2. They try to blind you with greed by "overpaying" you with a fake check. Instead of getting an extra $200, you lose your item and $2275 of your REAL MONEY. The check will appear to cash into your account. This is really the fact that you are good bank customer. When the fake/stolen check bounces, the bank will want their money back.

This is a check fraud scam. Why would they send you a check and then ask you to send them money? After you deposit this check in your account the bank will contact you later wanting repayment because the check will be a fake. Some of these checks like real and are not legit. Talk to your bank.
