Best Answer

There are several places where you can find the VIN other than on the dash. We try to verify the VIN that way first and if we are unable to do so that way, here in Ohio I can call my local police department and they will verify the VIN by cross checking it with the license plates on the vehicle. If the car has the correct plates for that make and model of vehicle and the VIN doesn't match the one that I'm looking for, then I leave. If the plates don't match the type of vehicle, then the police will impound the car for having fraudulent or incorrect plates and we can verify VIN from the police impound lot and repo it from there.

More Information:

Most REPO people will just try the key and if it works GO. This is of course illegal but they don't care. That's why it is important to change the locks and frequency of the auto locks.

Cars with incorrect plates can only be towed on PUBLIC property. If it is parked in a driveway or parking lot (say at your office) this is PRIVATE and cannot be towed. Unless the owner of the property says so.

A smart repo agaent will VERIFY the VIN before taking the car. Most people don't cover all the VINs.
