Legal Question in Criminal Law in Florida

I left my previous job, on pay day I received a call saying that I had a check at the store. I went to pick it up and cashed it. 5 days later they called me to tell me that the check was issue by mistake and That I had to return it, they are telling me that they will press charges if I dont return the money immediately. Can they do that?
