Craigslist scam watch: fake money orders

Police in Northern Arizona are warning people about a variation on a scam I posted about before.  The seller of an item gets a message from potential buyer, “Michael Armstrong” from England who sends two money orders and tells the seller to cash both money orders and return the excess amount via Western Union.  Typically, the money orders bounce after the seller has already sent the excess cash to Mr. Armstrong.
