How he almost Bought a pair of Bentleys using a $500,000 fake check
So close yet so far for 27-year old Walter Allen Jr. who used his actual drivers licence and a check from the Federal Reserve Bank in Atlanta to try and purchase a pair of Bentleys. The only problem was that the 500,000 check was a fraud.
Allen who walked into the Post Oak Motor Cars dealer with an actual notary public at his side and picked out a white $245,000 Bentley GTC and a black 2010 Bentley Flying Spur valued at $213,000.
If the fact that someone wanted to buy $500,000 in cars in one day didn’t tip anybody off, the dealer’s real tip-off came from the check itself drawn from the Federal Reserve Bank of Atlanta — which only deals with banks.
After signing over the check, the dealership told Allan to come back at 7p.m. and pick up his cars. When he arrived Allen signed the final papers and Houston police officers arrested him on charges of theft of more than $200,000, a first-degree felony.
Allen appeared in state District Judge Vanessa Velasquez’s courtroom Monday on a charge of theft of more than $200,000. He remains in jail in lieu of $30,000 bail. If convicted, he faces a maximum sentence of life in prison.
The notary public does not face any charges in the case.
Maybe paying $500k for two cars totalling 458k was also a tipoff?
Stupid thief is just stupid.
