I am about to buy a gasoline, auto transmission W123 sedan and the seller has provided me with this VIN code:
12302312095678

But I was unable to decode it anywhere (also tried adding WDB in front).

Can anyone help me?

Even MB does not recognise this VIN:

"The ident number WDB12302312095678 you have entered is not known to FDOK."

Please tell us more. WDB123023 is valid for a W123 series 230 model with an M115 engine. Next digits are for a left hand drive car and the transmission type. How do you know this specific serial number has never been valid?

It sure does look valid but it simply does not work.

Well, that's bad news, but thanks for help.
Maybe the car was stolen or was built using random parts.

This is very strange indeed, it works on EPC but my copy of EPC does not have the data card function activated. However it does not work on WIS or the russian parts site.

Check your VIN again as it does not work on WIS/EPC/Russian parts site.

The car is too new for the Russian site with a September 2010 build date.
