Type of a scam Employment

I am not entirely sure this is a scam yet. I reached out to the company directly, via the website I found on LinkedIn and am waiting for a response from them as well, but I was concerned enough to report the scam here. I believe they tried to engage me in a scam involving a fake check for start-up costs to a remote job and first week of pay.

I applied for this job on Indeed and the company did have good reviews on the site, but I was worried that what they were offering was too good to be true. Also, the HR Manager did not capitalize his own name, and there were noticeable grammatical errors in the emails sent. The email I provided above, [email protected], is from the correspondence with them, but the initial email I received after I applied on Indeed came from [email protected] I looked her up on Indeed and she is registered as an Executive Recruiter with the company. So some things seem to check out, some others do not. You will see in attached emails and the correspondence copied below, even when sent from an email address with her name, the name always signed on the emails is "kenneth Amura". I cannot find his name connected at all with the business. Link to original job posting is here:

Please let me know if this is a scam. I believe it might be, but will know for sure when the company responds to my email. However, even that makes me worried because I read an article posted on this site on what to look out for on scam jobs, and it said they can impersonate companies. The email had the same logo used on the website. I am really concerned. I have not gave them my social security number, but they know my email address from our communications and my phone number/address from my resume. Please review the screenshot attached.
