Welcome to the forum and glad you sought advice before going further. Short answer here is YES, he wants you to send that cash to him in his roundabout way while hanging you with the bad check.

Even though the money might be made available to you in a day or so the check will take time before it is truly found out to be a fraud. By then you have already sent him the cash with no recourse.

Yes it's a scam, and you are now in possession of a fraudulent cheque which is an offence. Write "fake" on it straight away or rip it up and throw it away.

Did you track the IP address? That might help. Meanwhile I found this result interesting:

Not sure if it's your boy though. Either way. Don't cash the check. You know it's a fake.
