Man Allegedly Cons Women Into Buying Him Lamborghini, Corvette, Shelby Mustang

OMG what is it that I am doing wrong here .... I have much better hair and I always end up have to pay the dinner bill and this guy gets Lambo,s and other fast cars?





A Missouri man has been accused of convincing a woman to buy him a Lamborghini and a Corvette as part of an online dating swindle that stretched across several states and encompassed at least three women, according to authorities.

28-year-old Timothy Rossell was arrested on October 13, and has been charged with one count of impersonating a federal officer and four counts of identity theft. According to police, Rossell was engaged in a con in which he would convince women to buy cars for him, drive them for a time, and then secretly sell them while telling the women the vehicles were stolen, KMOV.com reports.

Rossell had been living with his 27-year-old fiancee in Union, Missouri, under the identity of deputy U.S. marshal Austyn Gardner, according to court documents cited by the St. Louis Post-Dispatch. During their time together, Rossell convinced her to purchase him a Cadillac Escalade, a Shelby Mustang, and a Can-Am Spyder; he also opened several credit cards in her name, racking up tens of thousands of dollars in debt.

According to Detective Sergeant John Biser, when Rossell’s bride-to-be found the credit cards and several federal I.D.s for him under a different name, she confronted him—only for him to flee in his white 2015 2014 Lamborghini Gallardo.

The Lamborghini, it turned out, had reportedly been purchased for Rossell by a 27-year-old woman from Ft. Meyers, Florida, who he had also dated. She told police she had also bought Rossell, who she knew as deputy U.S. marshal Austyn Labella, a 2016 Chevrolet Corvette Z06, and had also loaned him $27,000.

Rossell was ultimately captured by authorities in Effingham, Illinois, where he was reportedly captured at the bus station trying to buy a ticket after the Lamborghini blew a tire.

Rossell reportedly met both women, as well as a third victim from Pennsylvania, on the dating website Plenty of Fish.

The Post-Dispatch reports that Rossell’s criminal record contains a litany of offenses across several states under numerous identities. A January 2014 article from Pittsburgh-area news outlet Trib Live reports Rossell has previously been charged with auto theft and impersonating both Pennsylvania and Missouri state law enforcement personnel.

Update: The Gallardo in question was a 2014 model year vehicle, not a 2015.

Speechless!

How dumb do they have to be?

I only want a second 55 for a little project.

The 55 is second hand.

Though the project might cost more than the car.

Though his fraud is deceitful and cretinous... I can't honestly say I wouldn't play the role of doting toy boy, especially if I were gifted new cars for my efforts.

This guy resembles an overfilled sausage... and my rates are far lower this his.
