Should be fairly easy for them to check where the fraud happened, though, if you feel like dropping them a line.
It would have been clocked before its first MOT. If I'd have had the MOT done myself before I sold it, I wouldn't have got as much.
As I've said before, I did nothing wrong but I'm not naïve. I'm not obliged to put the mileage on the V5 and I don't have to have the MOT done until the car is 3 years old. If I'd done either of those things, then selling the car would have been a lot more difficult.
