Yup, lonegunmen nailed it on this one. I've heard of several people falling for similar stunts where they'll get checks for well over the amount and be asked to send the difference back with the merchandise. Someone from Africa tried to do it to a store I used to work at by ordering a bunch of stuff over the phone. Take it up with the postal inspectors like Ronin said since you have several thousand dollars worth of mail fraud in your hands.
Politicians are like diapers; they should be changed frequently, and for the same reason.

I would take them to WalMart or the bank they are drawn on and explain what is going on just to see if they are good. I would also be sure to take anything you have as proof of the fact they were sent to you. If they are good carry on.....if they are not follow up with the proper athorities.
Just an fyi if you get Postal MO's your local post office will cash them and can verify them even if they are issued by another country's Postal Service! That is how I do the ones I get from Canada and I was old they do the same for other countries. I don't have a list though, but they do!

Get an out of state fake ID and find a skeezy corner store that cashes every check they get.
It's christmas time baby! It is a gift from Santa if you work the system.
*Please do take note I'm being sarcastic, if you actually follow my advice to scam the scammer and actually obtain the $ I hold no responbility. However I do want a cut of the pie! My idea afterall.

Take it to the place from which it's drawn. (Walmart cashes their own money orders I think, or look for a bank listed on the FRONT of the money order) or call the number someone listed. I think there is a verification number ON walmart money orders anyway.
Whatever you do, do NOT cash it or deposit it in your account at your bank. Funds AVAILABILITY does not mean the item has instantly cleared. The ONLY way you know the item has cleared the account it is coming out of is if you take it to the place where the money order is drawn on- they can see what if anything is available AND they can also verify the money order number and validity of it.
Report it to the police too. Seriously.
The correct question is, "Why don't I need another gun?"
How strange to see a lagomorph of such bravery.

Yup.. an old scam. They send you extra in a fake postal order, or whatever, and ask you to send the remaining back, or to someone else.
That's normally how the scam works. Then your out the money, and the merchandise... etc. Usually just the money.
The old saying, if it's too good to be true, it usually is.
I tried selling my motorcycle online, and I got dozens of these types of scams. Sad.

Actually -I will go across the border into mexico and get you some water. Give a bunch of it to some relatives and collect the 'output' of Montezuma's revenge. Place a small charge on the baggie you ship with a trip wire style pull cord. Place a HUGE amount on the customs declaration to add to the sadness of it all and when they open the box 'BOOM'!
Yes I really did think this up all by my sick little self.
