Not only is it a scam, but we've been goofing on that scam today, on the Trombone-L list. This is the "I want to overpay a ridiculous sum for some service via cashiers check, and have you wire the remainder back to me" scam. The cashiers check takes a while to bounce, and meantime you've wired the "change" back to someone in another country.
