Found 12th Sep 2016
To me the number 9 looks altered 2 number to last. Doesn't event look like a 9. Ive done a HIP check showing that it is a valid V5C for the car however is the document fake?

Car isn't showing up as stolen, finance or crashed.

Thanks, Haven't bought the car but asked for him to send the V5c serial and sent me this. The vehicle hasn't been taxed since April. I think it may be a clone car? but the number "9" looks like a number 1 to me aswell but altered as I'm 100% sure number nine looks like a 9

He said he bought the car from BCA 4 weeks ago. The V5c isn't in the sellers name but the previous owners name

Get him to ring dvla asap
Get him also to check chasis number on the car and see if its the same as the logbook
Has he spoken to bca , as everything that goes through will have a hpi check
If the cars not right he can back it and they will have all the sellers details to give to the police
Bca wont want bad publicity so he will get his money back
Is the 9 printed like that or with black pen
Interested inthe outcome of this one

V5c number looks like 0727313. It is probably a bit dirty from being handled hence why it looks like a 9. Remember these things are thrown around in filthy gloveboxes or handled by numerous people before you get it.

I think he's lies because I told I'm not interested and didn't say anything back, he was selling it for a good price. He didn't even ask why I suddenly wasn't interested.

That number 1 is meant to be a 9 as when I a HPI check number 1 showed up as a warning to contact DvLA But when I changed it to a 9 all showed up as fine.

Well in that case is looks very iffy, but its a lot if trouble to go to forge a v5c to within "1" number then so blatantly change a number.

Also as said before if the car came from BCA they or the dealership previous should have checked the paperwork.

Thanks for all the info, I've asked the seller to get the V5c registered into his name and i will buy, but no response yet. However the information you have provided now makes me wonder if the car mileages may have been alter before its first MOT, whilst also wondering why that number 9 looks like a 1

​Unless there is a clearer photo, I have to agree that it looks like a 1 with a water mark above it.

He's told me that he will get back to me tomorrow on the issue, my gut is telling me to stay well clear as I've found out that the last v5c was issued in 2014 whilst the seller claim that the v5c issue year is 2013. However will call BCA and DVLA to clear up some issues. However he has all documentations present.

Date of last V5C issued 01 May 2014 Showing this on DVLA however watermarks shows 10/13?

Edited by: "Akaptel94" 12th Sep 2016

I personally would be steering clear of this. Too many questions.

I'd avoid tbh, not worth the hassle.

Mileage looks genuine looking at previous MOTs, however, I would suggest an independent inspection as I suspect accident repair.

looks like a cheap car. if bca sold this then the buyer has a guarantee to return it to auction for a refund or money towards another car.

I thought BCA sent off the V5C when you buy from them - they charge a fee for it.

Think it's different when it's trade, Like if you were to sell your car to a trader you just give them your V5 and it then gets sent off when they get sold by the trader.
