$20,000 Reward for Conman Khan

Mar 19, 2015 - 0 Comments

A $20,000 reward is now being offered by the FBI for information which leads to the swift apprehension of a car-dealing conman wanted in New Jersey. 

The Bureau says Afzal Khan -- who also goes by the nickname “Bobby” -- has criminally defrauded nearly a hundred customers, lenders, and owners in underhanded dealings at his Emporio Motor Group dealership.

Emporio Motor’s pattern of deceptive practices began sometime in December 2013 and carried through to September 2014, say those investigating the matter.

But the suspect skipped out of town soon after an official inquiry was launched, and now Khan’s whereabouts are a total mystery.

Authorities allege that the slick auto-dealer frequently assisted buyers in obtaining loans for the purchase of vehicles he had no legal title to, or that he patently refused to convey legitimate titles to purchasers once they took possession.

As well, Khan conned some owners into allowing him to sell their used cars on consignment, but never paid any compensation whatsoever once he actually sold those vehicles for them.

Federal investigators finally became aware of Khan’s self-enriching schemes when more than 75 people he fleeced in this manner filed formal complaints against him.

The $20,000 reward now offered by the FBI for the capture of Afzal Kahn represents merely a fraction of what he made off with, and, if convicted of those white-collar crimes, he’d not only be expected to pay his victims full restitution, but face up to 20 years in prison.
