US Customs Confiscate Multiple Supercars after Asian Export Scam Fails
text size: A- A+
The vehicles had been acquired via cash or credit in the Los Angeles area with dealers, financial and insurance companies being scammed in the process. However, one Ferrari dealer that had installed a GPS tracking device on one of the cars, a 458 Italia, alerted the authorities, which called back a suspect ship and found the cars in containers.
The vehicles, which come with an estimated overall value of USD1.5 million (EUR1.15 million at the current exchange rate), included the aforementioned Ferrari, a Lamborghini Aventador, as well as Lexus and Infiniti models, and multiple Audi, BMW and Mercedes SUVs, were being exported to Hong Kong and Vietnam, where they would be sold at three times their prices. In addition to that, four vehicles were confiscated in Asian ports.
