Exclamation *** CarFax, DMV.org, and other "VIN lookup" threads/requests ***

We are sorry to have to post this, but due to recent announcements by Carfax, Acurazine is no longer allowing Carfax offers and/or requests.

Carfax is cracking down on the "sharing" of carfax memberships. Some of our members here on AZ have been contacted by Carfax for violation of Carfax rules.

Because of this, it has been decided to no longer allow Carfax offers and/or requests.

Thanks in advance for your cooperation,

The Acurazine Moderation Staff

From a member who frequents a corvette forum:

"For those who do not know.. Carfax is trolling several forums... including this one .. looking for people who are sharing carfax info. If you request info..or share info with another party.. you are in Violation of their terms of service.. and your subscription will be cancelled with out warning."

Just a note to add that per the admins, sites like DMV.org and other similar VIN checking services have also been added to this ban...
