Brain scratcher, friend needs help with SVT

Hi, everyone! New to the board.

My friend could use some advice / help.

He's looking at 2002 Ford Focus SVT. He can get it cheap but, when he ran the VIN threw Carfax this came up this

11/17/2009 SOUTHEASTERN REGION
Auto Auction AUCTION ANNOUNCED AS FRAME DAMAGE

Now the guy did buy at auction. He said they did that because of altered suspension on the car

Has anyone ever heard of this??

very possible, but I would take it somewhere to have the thing looked over to make sure there were no frame repairs made.

That's what I told him and take it to good body shop, who knows what to look for. I've just never heard them doing that? I know the car was repop and that's why it ended up at the auction. Thanks!!
