403-Ebay smamiton India fake number license plates
In August 2015 Ebay seller smamiton from Oregon in the USA has been trying to sell these fake Indian current series high security registration plates (HSRP).
They have all been made in a plate shop somewhere in India but none are genuine plates.
Genuine plates have many security features. These ones do not have the laser etched security number that proves they are genuine, the blue band is not allowed and many are missing the diagonal overprinting.
India has a very complicated system where the letters indicate the vehicle class. A lot of these plates have registrations that will never exist as the code letters are wrong on them.
Very dubious plates indeed, no doubt bought for a few dollars in a shop in India with the hope of parting collectors from their money and making a nice little profit.
