My sister is selling her car.

 

The license plate is visible in the images, and she has someone calling up asking for the VIN number and some number from the MOT certificate apparently to do some "checks".

 

Surely you only need the REG for a HPI check?

 

What would they need the numbers for? Or could this be a possible clone attempt?

 

Edit: Should say "clone".

please don't hit Quote...just type we know what we said earlier..

DCA's view debtors as suckers, marks and mugs

NO DCA has ANY legal powers whatsoever on ANY debt no matter what it's Type

and they

are NOT and can NEVER  be BAILIFFS. even if a debt has been to court..

If everyone stopped blindly paying DCA's Tomorrow, their industry would collapse overnight...

You are only assuming that this is what it might be.. unless you have absolute proof that is what is intended, then I think you should be very careful about making the accusation :)

I am not accusing anyone? I'm not asking for advice to go and sue the guy, I'm asking advice if it is normal practice for someone to ask for VIN numbers and MOT numbers.

 

If this is common for people wanting these numbers to clone the car, I would want to advise my sister to stay clear of him.

Bit more reading in to it online, VIN & MOT is so they can check the MOT and the history of the car.

 

Should be fine to give.

There certainly is no reason for other than the reg number.

 

 

Don't let her give it to anyone for a test drive without someone being in the car as well and don't let them drive until you check their insurance. Comprehensive no longer means they 'have' third party to drive any other car.

Thanks Conniff.

 

Reading online people say that only people with some thing to hide would not want to give it out. Nothing to hide, just seems odd.

 

She has other interest so should sell soon.
