A few owners of cars for sale on the CLC Potomac Region website have reported that a person claiming to be from Opa Locka, FL has emailed them with a scam offer related to either buying, inspecting and/or shipping the vehicle.  It appears to be the old overpayment scam where the seller is asked to send a check to the prospective buyer for the difference. 

Here is an article on Internet Scams that we published in our newsletter in February -- -- it's a good idea to review before talking with any prospective buyers, especially non Club members who don't provide a phone number and offer to pay full asking amount without asking questions or wanting to see any additional pictures/videos.
