The statement, which must be in English or accompanied by an English translation if the vehicle was purchased outside the United States, must be signed and dated by an authorized representative of the manufacturer, indicate the complete name and address of the purchaser, include a complete description of the vehicle, and contain as many assignments as necessary to show title in the name of the purchaser.
(2) It is unlawful for an off-highway vehicle manufacturer, manufacturer’s representative, or dealer to issue a manufacturer’s certificate of origin describing an off-highway vehicle with the knowledge that the description is false or that the off-highway vehicle described does not exist. It is unlawful for any person to obtain or attempt to obtain a certificate of origin with the knowledge that the description is false or that the off-highway vehicle does not exist. Any person who violates this subsection commits a felony of the third degree, punishable as provided in s. 775.082, s. 775.083, or s. 775.084.
