The check is counterfeit, so if you take it to your own bank and deposit it, which most people do, in a week or so the bank will find out that it is counterfeit and come back after you for the full amount of the check.

Call the dealership and ask to speak with the person who signed the check. Make sure you look up the actual dealer phone number and not use the number on the check, it could be a phoney number. Chances are this person hasn't a clue if someone else is counterfeiting checks and using their name. Depending on the results... you may also need to consider filing a police report to protect yourself.
