I found out my sister got caught up in some sort of vehicle fraud. She bought a used car, tried to get it titled and the DMV flagged it and refused to offer her title, and took the existing title. Apparently the VIN had been somehow altered, and the titled had been washed in another state to get it clean, but the DMV checked with the following agency and flagged it as possible fraud. https://www.vehiclehistory.gov/ National Motor Vehicle Title Information System. I had never heard of them before and suspected something goofy like a Carfax clone, and in fact that is sort of what it is, but apparently Carfax itself does not participate for consumers. Anybody used this before ?
