Here is a description of the assignment:
As I already told you, our customer that has chosen to pay for our services by check made out a check and mailed it to you through USPS. You are going to receive it next 24-48 hours in the mail.
Please keep checking delivery progress at www.usps.com website by entering USPS tracking number 9311769932000015309985. Please however, note that if tracking information is initially unavailable or incomplete it will get updated within next 24 hours). After you receive our customer’s check, please follow the guidelines below:
A. Confirm receipt of the check on the day received;
B. Cash the check or deposit it to clear if necessary* (see Note for clarification);
*Note: please note that if your bank requests depositing payments to clear according to established practices it is absolutely ok with us. Make sure to provide a deposit slip/transaction receipt
scan each time you deposit a payment to clear even for 24 hours or less (this document should indicate the date the check is scheduled to clear) and proceed once the funds are released. And this
procedure usually takes 1-3 business days. In really rare cases – up to 7 days (e.g.: if you have a newly opened bank account, you have not used your existing account for a while, etc.). Please, email a scanned/photographed copy of a deposit slip/transaction receipt on the day you deposit the check to clear, as we need to have this document on file to forward it to our client upon their request.
C. Once you have the money, please deduct and keep your remuneration.
D. Send me a report that the customer’s payment was successfully cashed, and after that I will prepare the instructions for sending money in accordance with the recommendations of our financial
E. Once you get the instructions, you should transfer the remaining amount as per instructions.
Please confirm your willingness to perform a second assignment. You have a good chance to demonstrate your great productivity and skills.

After waiting what I thought was a sufficient amount of time, and upon checking with my bank to make sure funds had cleared, I withdrew money per the instructions around 14 days after depositing the check. The check in the amount of $2642.67 subsequently was returned 28 days later. Thus, I am out those funds.
