How do you know they haven't "cracked down" on this kind of fraud? And, just what IS "cracking down"? Do you mean suddenly taking enforcement action after no enforcement action was taken in the past? Or, do you mean handing out heavier sentences for such frauds?It's reaching the point where you should probably buy from a reputable dealer you know you can trust if you don't know for sure what you're looking at. The extra cost is worth peace of mind that you haven't been ripped off. Too bad the EU and US governments won't crack down on this kind of fraud.
