Not only is it considered fraud to turn back miles or hours or misrepresent them, it is a criminal violation and also grounds to sue the seller who does so for unfair and deceptive practices, which entitles the buyer who was deceived to seek triple damages plus attorney's fees for willful and malicious misrepresentation of the miles and/or hours, even if the vehicle does not require them to be recorded as it is still misrepresentation of the vehicle.
