These guys might think they are good. They probably think they have it all covered. Most people wouldn't look twice at these official looking documents, but they are forged.
I got these, along with a title from Florida on this 1999 Nissan Silvia S15
Listed as being manufactured in 8/1999.
Imported as a vehicle
Anyone that knows these cars, knows they were never imported to the US. On the HS7 form, SOHO Imports filled out box 2A.
(b) The vehicle or equipment item conforms with all applicable safety standards (or the vehicle does not conform solely because readily attachable equipment items which will be attached to it before it is offered for sale to the first purchases for purposes other than resale are not attached), and bumper and theft prevention standards, and bears a certification label or tag to that effect permanently affixed by the original manufacturer to the vehicle, or by the manufacturer to the equipment item or its delivery container, in accordance with, as applicable, parts 541, 555, 567, 568, and 581, or 571 (for certain equipment items) of this chapter.Not true. A S15 doesn't have a certification label. It was never certified for the US. This is a forged document.
Still looking further at this document and matching it up to the EPA document - the 3520-1. Notice the entry date and the entry number. 3/15/13. Customs entry number - 7881048462 Customs Entry Port - 1803 Jacksonville. Then on the document is a stamp from the Florida DMV. No US Customs Entry stamp to be found anywhere. Why is there no entry stamp? Why is there a DMV stamp?

Seems like you can't trust anything with a Florida title.
If it came in though Florida, you are going to want to check EVERYTHING very carefully before you purchase. Remember if they come to seize a car, doesn't matter if you did nothing wrong, you lose the car. Don't be the one holding the hot potato
