Office Of Odometer Fraud Investigation
From 2002 to 2005, the Office of Odometer Fraud Investigations has seen a definite escalation in fraud. New car prices, coupled with the increased demand for late-model, low-mileage used cars, has made odometer fraud more profitable than ever. Strong enforcement of the federal and state odometer laws, i.e., prosecutions with stiff sentences, appears to be the most effective deterrent.
