This is a FAT File system?

I apologize, that USB drive is NTFS, not fat. So what should I do to scan it?

I'd download Hirens Boot CD, create a disc and then run one of the tools it contains against the NTFS drive.

Hook it up to windows and scan it there.
If you don't have windows anymore, then format the drive.

I guess that what I should have asked was - Is there a way to scan and repair errors on a NTFS formatted hard drive from within Linux WITHOUT having to go through "Wine" in order to do it?

From within Linux? Not really. From Hirens Boot CD? Definitely.

There's this wonderful thing on the Internet called Google. It's even been known to assist folks in finding answers to all sorts of questions, including where to download Hiren's Boot CD. It will even show you what the CD has on it and what those tools can do.
