Insurance Crime Bureau Launches Database of Stolen Car VIN Numbers

November 15, 2007

DES PLAINES, Ill. --- The National Insurance Crime Bureau (NICB) has launched a database of unrecovered stolen vehicles as a free service to the public.Over 1 million vehicles have been stolen annually in the United States since 1986. With an annual average recovery rate of just 63 percent, several million vehicles remain unaccounted for and could possibly end up being purchased by unsuspecting consumers.Anyone can now run a Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) through this database and determine if it has been reported stolen by one of NICB's over 1,000 member insurance companies.To check a vehicle, visit the NICB website (www.nicb.org) and follow the on-screen directions. In recent months, NICB special agents have identified numerous stolen vehicles that were in the process of being sold by auto dealers or restored by collectors.
