They will send you a check for far greater than the amount that you want. They want the greed factor to overcome your common sense. Then they want you to keep some of it, but send some of the extra to an address where they will pick up the money....and run. Of course, the bank will contact you a few days later wanting their money back, including the bad check fee.
If you have a humorous side, have them send you the (fake) cashiers check or money order (also fake) to a different address other than yours that you can pick it up. Frame it and hang it on the wall as a reminder never to be suckered into these scams. Then send some fake Monopoly money to his address to show him that you not not a fool. Write him a little note saying that you were smart enough not to cash the check.
There was a scam like this on the local news just last night about a local guy who almost fell for it, but got smart and called the authorities. They would no nothing about it and they had no interest in tracking down the guy.

I thought of doing what you said, Gambles, However, I think it much easier, to have the check sent to the neighborhood crack/meth house, where someone will be sure to cash it. That way, you get double duty out of your yucks!
