In FIX_Transport_1.1.pdf page 38 of 66 (March 2008) defines a Garbled message as
BeginString (tag #8) is not the first tag in a message or is not of the format 8=FIXT.n.m.

MsgType (tag #35) is not the third tag in a message.
Checksum (tag #10) is not the last tag or contains an incorrect value.
The following additions should be made to the above list of definitions of a garbled message
SenderCompID (tag #49) is not the fourth tag in a message.
TargetCompID (tag #56) is not the fifth tag in a message.
ApplVerID (tag #1128) if present in message is not the sixth tag in a message.
Non numeric Tag is present in the message, for example ^X=123^
