Prize Winning BMW is a Fraud

    A prize winning BMW was recently crushed after officials discovered it was a botched car that consisted of stolen car parts. However, all this could have been avoided with the right digital tools that identify complete car history with plate match accuracy while spotting fraud in real-time.

    Police saw an odd looking bright green vehicle on the Birmingham ring road and became instantly suspicious. After a search of the plate numbers, they realised the model didn’t match the car. The car was subsequently seized and crushed by a specialist scrapyard.
