Hi Shadow, and welcome!

That one's been around for a little while - a variation on cheque mule scamming. There were posts here about a year ago on it - so I guess it's newish.

It's quite an ingenious one. The store you will be asked to evaluate will be a Western Union agency. A possibly plausible reason for sending you a (bogus) check for more than you are due to receive.

What's from stopping you from cashing the check and keeping the whole thing? Obviousely some people get away with cashing it if these scams have people sending money back to the scammers.

By law, banks have to release funds within a few days based on the deposit, but they can demand that money back (and press charges) if the check is determined to be a fake later. And it sometimes takes weeks to months to determine it is a fake.

So it is very possible the victim will be able to cash the check, and they could keep the whole sum. Unfortunately, a few months later, when the bank has determined the check is fake, the victim is left being forced to pay back the original sum, plus numerous bounced check charges, and could find themselves facing criminal charges for passing fraudulent checks.
