So, math time.
You send 90% of this check, $80,775 to a scammer's buddy in Asia plus wire transfer fees.
You owe $89,750.12 to your bank plus returned check charges when the check bounces.
Add in an aggressive prosecutor who wants to put you in prison for passing a fake check
= ???

This is how I received it; on 8.5 x 11 paper:

This is a VersaCheck so it was printed at home on an inkjet printer (using VersaCheck software and ink).

This check was sent from Melbourne Florida and the only thing atypical about it is the routing, account and check number at the very bottom i.e. those numbers are usually in the order of routing then account and then check number. However, this is not a hard rule as I have seen real checks which vary in the order.

All other aspects of the check are valid e.g. there is an Irving Community Development Corp and that address is correct; the routing number is that of Bank Of The West and that address is correct.

And the reverse with real Micr numbers, upside down across the top and a string of numbers on the bottom that mean nothing. Also spelling errors.
