Is this a scam or a really big scam?

So I’ve been selling a cheap truck without much interest. Got an email from someone today willing to lowball me slightly less than most folks - but there’s a catch.

He “reconditions” cars and trucks. He wants to pay me (in CASH! as he said many times) in return for the truck and a signed title. Not signed to him - just signed with the buyers name blank.

My state requires title transfers to be notarized. Which means he’d be doing an illegal transfer both when he buys and sells the vehicle, right?  Presumably this is to avoid paying transfer tax...but come on.
