There are a lot of these scams taking place on the net. A lot of people over on my FaunaClassifieds site have had runins with a variation of this that may be of interest to anyone selling items on the web.

What will happen is someone out of the country will want to arrange a sale through an intermediary and offer to send a large cashier's check, giving you a large cut of it and having you send the balance via a money order or another cashier's check to the intermediary. The problem is that the cashier's check you will get will be counterfeit, which you may not find out about until a week or more after you have sent off your merchandise and that balance of the original payment you sent off. So you wind up being out of not only the merchandise you shipped, but also that money you sent off that was the overage in the payment made to you.

There are NO free lunches, especially on the internet.

Law Enforcement calls that "The Nigerian Scam," RIKA.

Because all of the first of the scams originated in NIGERIA. Now those scam letters are originating from all over the world.
