Interesting that someone is looking for a VIN for a 1950 Model. Serial numbers (engine and/or body) maybe but not a VIN. VINs started in 1954 with NO standardization until 1981 when the current 17 digit format began.

1). The legitimate VIN can be confirmed by a potential buyer/victim and it will come back as belonging to a vehicle that not only does exist but matches the vehicle in the pics the "seller"/crook posts in the ad. Thus legitimizing the "seller"/crook and his bogus advertisement.
2). The "seller"/crook has pretty much isolated/insulated them self from the risk of being caught to a great degree. When the buyer/victim realizes he has been robbed, the only truthful information on record will be pointing towards the legitimate owner of the vehicle belonging to the VIN.
3).The reason the person obtains the VIN at great distance but still in the same state is to further isolate/insulate them self from the investigation. Had he been in the close proximity of the legit vehicle and gathered the VIN with his own eyes, there is too much risk he is caught in a photograph that can be circulated for positive ID by LEOs. Also, the legit owner of the VIN may have a memory like an elephant and remember details to aid the investigators in making the ID such as distinct scars, marks or tattoos or unique voice, belt buckle etc.
