SCAM ALERT to all with ads

I have an ad on here for my wheels and tires. I was contacted thru here and a price was negotiated and my wheels were to be sent after receipt of a moneyorder. Then after all of that I got this scam email.

Thanks for prompt response to my mail but I
just got off the phone now with an associate in the
US who is indebted to me as regard business
transaction as at last month i came to the States. he's suppose to send me a payment down here in netherland, but my bank just told me it will take a minimum of thirty days for such foreign check to clear the bank here in Europe.
But i could instruct him(my associate) to
send you the payment in the US and makes it a bit
faster by sending you a Cashier's Check instead, so as to fasten this Transaction.He will issue you
the payment which is $4,500. you will only need
to cash the payment and get your cost of my(Wheels) deducted while you will have tosend the balance via MONEY GRAM to THE shipping agency in "netherland" and they will come for the pick up while you arrange the Bill of sales a nd every
other necessary documents covering the sales.
More importantly, you will be sending the
balance to THE shipper in "netherland" and this will be the only easiest and safest way i could get the payment remmited to you and from all inference it's about the fastest way i could seal up the TRANSACTION If you will comply with my condition of payment, please send me an acknowledgement of this mail and give me assurance for trusting you with my FUNDS and the Transaction.
And i will instruct my associte to issue the
Paymentin your name and i will want you to send me
your phone number incase i want to reach you on
If all this arrangement is okay with you
please get back to me with your full name,address,and your phone number so that the payment can be mail out to you by monday,get back
to m e as soon as possible.
