You could get a copy of your car’s history from one source and not from another source. This is something you should take into consideration. If one source lists one problem with the car, but another report list another problem with the car, then it is most likely a fake. So, if you received one report and another one listing a different problem with the same car, then it most likely is a fake. Have a look at VIN Verification.
You may have a friend who has the time to check the car for you. But if they did not check the car’s history and you got it from them, then they most likely didn’t check it very well either. If you are getting a report from someone you know, ask to see their verification. It is pretty easy to do and they may just give you their opinion that the car’s history is clean.
Your VIN verification was submitted incorrectly. There are a number of different errors that can occur when submitting the report. Sometimes the problem is a spelling error or a comma or a semicolon is misplaced in the information. Even though the problem may seem minor, it is still listed on the report, which means that you won’t get the correct report.
