Fake Ship?

The Off Course section of the October 23 edition of Tradewinds reported Canadian authorities had detained a ship with a false International Maritime Organization Number.

The ship, Oceanlady, was boarded by Canadian authorities off the coast of British Columbia the paper reported. It is believed there are 76 Sri Lankan Tamils aboard. Authorities do not know where the ship came from.

The IMO number is supposedly 7732349 but that number doesn't exist.

Are counterfeit IMO numbers common? Have any readers or Amver participants heard of this before?
