This Guy Conned A Woman Into Buying Him A Lamborghini Gallardo

Crime

And a Corvette Z06, Mustang Shelby and Escalade.

Meet Timothy Rossell, age 28, and he’s been charged with four counts of identity theft and one count of impersonating a federal officer. More specifically, he conned a Florida woman into buying him a Lamborghini Gallardo and a Corvette Z06. According to Channel 4 KMOV in St. Louis, Missouri, Rossell began dating women from Pennsylvania, Florida, and Missouri he met on a dating website called "Plenty of Fish." In each instance he managed to convince those women to buy him cars. Yes, in their name but he was the sole driver.

Later he claimed the vehicles were stolen when, in fact, he sold them and pocketed the money. The woman from Missouri became suspicious and soon "located credit cards in her name she didn’t know about and then she located some federal IDs for her fiance that were a different name." Rossell told his victims he was a US Federal Marshal and a paramedic. He was actually engaged to the woman from Missouri but he already managed to get her to buy him a Cadillac Escalade, Ford Mustang Shelby, and a Can-Am Spyder 3-wheeled motorcycle. When she confronted him about her discoveries, Rossell fled in the Lamborghini but it later got a flat tire. Police managed to catch up soon after at a bus station.
