Move the front wheels to full lock in each direction, and check that they don't foul the bodywork; it may be as well to 'bounce' each corner of the car to simulate suspension travel when you check this. If the front wheels do foul the bodywork, then the chances are that larger or wider wheels and tyres have been fitted; if both prove to be standard, then either extremely poor bodywork repair has resulted in badly aligned panels, or the front suspension geometry has been altered because the car has been involved in a front-end collision. In either case, confront the vendor with the evidence.
