    Why? So that you cash his worthless check, send him the extra money and the item, then get stuck making it all up to the bank when the check bounces, probably including a penalty fee for presenting a bad check.

    Many variations of the same scam exist.

    It will bwe a 'hot check' (counterfit). Then you will be hounded for a quick payment via WU... Before the check bounces.

    Remember, these days one can buy phone numbers from anywhere with an internet connection. Including Lagos, Nigeria.

    It's called advance payment scam and 419 eater is a website with more info on scambaiting the scammers, so that they may be too busy to reach a sucker.

    That's a common scam that has been around for years. Ignore / delete...
