Scam Description

I inquired about a car listing on my Nextdoor neighbor app. It was way underpriced and was curious about the details. Thought it was a typo . Person responded with an email address to correspond. I emailed her and she sent several photos of the car and said the car was crated and ready to ship. I asked for VIN# and copy of title. Her response was papers are in the car sealed and ready to ship.Based on the responses, I feel it’s most likely a scam
