That's one of the more significant first-ever posts in RL history.

Thanks for sharing, according to the lawsuit VP and his wife ran the scheme, over $2.5 Million which let me tell you... is it even worth it? That's not that much money given his position with the company and the obvious risk.

Interesting as that appears to be a lawsuit by Champion against the fraudster and his wife/sister/confidant. Will be much more interesting to see if someone goes after the dealership to see if they dropped the ball somewhere themselves.

I had the same thought. Its not that much money and he had been working there for a long time why throw it all away now? If you read through all those docs it shows he had some serious money problems so maybe he was desperate and looking for a way out? People do crazy things all the time so I guess I am not that surprised.

I was thinking of placing a 19’ GT3RS order with them. Yikes.

I just don't see how someone could be so desperate having worked for Champion for 10+ years...
