just out of curiosity-what can happen to a dealer or a private seller if this happens? as in, what time of charges can occur, if any?

I would think that it would be classified as fraud and sentencing would depend upon the difference in value that it would make to the vehicle.

Tamperers face fines and jail time

Resetting, disconnecting or altering a vehicle’s odometer to conceal the true mileage is called "odometer tampering." It is illegal for anyone to tamper with an odometer or to sell a vehicle knowing that the odometer has been tampered with.

Whether tampering is done by a backyard mechanic who resets the odometer before trading for a new car, by a person who buys a gadget to keep miles from registering on the odometer, by a dealer who contracts with a "reconditioning" firm, or by a multi-state used car mill, odometer tampering violates state and federal laws, and is punishable by fines, imprisonment or both.
