When buying or selling used vehicle parts you should be aware of the huge market in stolen parts. New Parts could be also stolen.
People steal cars then bring them to a chop shop where the car or truck is dismantled, and parts sold off to eager buyers looking for a deal on something cheap. They feel that they won't easily get caught.
Many car parts have serial numbers and manufacturers name tags on them.
Use all of the specific information about the motor vehicle part in the bill of sale to assure that it is not confused with a stolen part.
Go to jail!
You can get arrested for "Receiving Stolen Property" even if you didn't know it was stolen.
Depending on it's value, your crime can be a felony punishable by up to 5 years in prison in most states. That would really suck.
