+1 email scam & cashing checks

Email Address:
I replied to an ad on craigslist for job postings & received emails back stating I had gotten the job. I was given information on a package I would receive & instructions on what to do with it. after being emailed to cash checks & send them via money gram to different locations, I realized this was a scam. I reported everything to the fbi but have still received a check. I refuse to cashIit & be charged a felony for money laundering. another email had "offered" me a position for creating "payroll checks". there are a number of people that are being targetted. some creating checks at home & others cashing them. it is not okay for these scammers to take advantage of people like this, the people get charged with fraud while the scammers are getting away with nothing on them.
All emails came from the sender of "jones smith" but used a different name & claimed they live here, but currently in another country for business. not a single person has even called me, it has all been via email.

Jones Smith Roy Hunt Dear Applicant,
I am ROY HUNT Owner of Collectibles Photos. I am a photographer, My friend who is the HRM for the job you applied for sent me your resume some minutes ago as the job position which you applied for is no longer available so he thought you might be interested in the job position which i have available.
I will deeply appreciate all genuine efforts to help me monitor and keep up to date with all my activities. I most very often get my hands occupied because am working with many companies both states and outside, so it is imperative for me to have a worthy assistant who can monitor and keep me up to date with my activities. As my assistant, your activities amongst other things will include: Make travel arrangements and submit expenses for Attorneys Order office supplies, Running personal errands,Check Processing Filing documents,faxing, printing and typing letters Web research, Internet search skills and posting ads Quality communication etiquette skills and good organizational skills. Serious sense of humor required and mandatory to work with me. Ability to handle highly sensitive and confidential information Perform duties with accuracy, quality, and integrity. Basic wage is $400 a week
I travel alot as well to meet up with some of my clients hence the reason why I need an assistant to handle affairs for me on the home front when i am away on business which is usually quite often. This position is home-based and flexible you can be in any location,working with me is basically about instructions and following them, my only fear is that I may come at you impromptu sometimes, I need someone who can be able to meet up with my irregular timings.There is also a very sensitive issue on trust and accountability which I believe will resolve itself as time goes on.
This is only an introductory e-mail, as time goes on we should be able to arrange a proper meeting to get things started officially. I do have a number of things you could help me with this coming week if you will be available for me. This can act as a stable foundation to our working relationship. Note: This position is home base office work you can be in any location and work with me from your home. Let me know your interest if you are ready to work with me from your home Mon-Fri @ 10am.
I await your response to this email so we can get started.
Hope to hear from you again.
Regards, ROY HUN
