Now we have to worry about shiny new VIN tags as well as shiny new Trim tags :sigh:

Sunnava.....!!! 
Wow - thought I've seen it all.....the bottom one (124379N567808) is an obvious fake compared to the real deal on top.

I don't think there's anyone who could have spotted this.  If I walked up to this car and looked at the vin - no way in hell I would have figured the tag to be butchered. 

Unbelievable.

Great catch William. 

I'm just dumbfounded.

I informed the seller and advised him to check the hidden VINs, but dollars to donuts they won't reply. Or even care for that matter.

If I were them, they should heed your advice.  That car is nothing but a mess, heading to a courtroom for sure.

Good catch. In looking at it and studying them, the characters seem to be spaced too close together. 4 seems a bit off too.

He may have been shut down on eBay, but a google vin search shows for sale on at least 4 other sites.

Rut Roh! Scooby.

Should possibly be reported to Calif DMV

Would the Selling Dealer be off the Hook when it comes to something like this?

Not impressed with the sellers feedback score also.....66%.  Not stellar by any means.

Just clicked on the auction link. Ironic that it is being sold by myhotcars. Sounds foretelling.
