    Super auto generated scam.
    That's why they always say "(OEM Eclipse wheels)" and are using a money order.
    The MO won't clear, you lose.

    It's a 419 scam, it's just on a smaller item for a smaller amount so there's a higher chance for the scammers to sound believable. As you said, why bother with scamming for a couple grand? Well, money is money regardless.

    rule of thumb.. anytime they offer more than what you ask it's a scam
