Wow, talk about stupidity from all points......

http://www.corvetteblogger.com/2016/...z06-bad-check/

Did they really think they would get away with it?

Not with the modern technology these days.

The story starts when a husband and wife named Anthony and Bethany Perno apparently convinced the crew at Reliable Chevrolet in northwest Albuquerque that they were good to pay for a $100,000-plus Corvette Z06 with a cashier’s check.

But it was all just an elaborate scam.


When the couple went to their bank to get a cashier’s check, Bethany claimed that the bank’s printer was broken and she only had a personal check.

Ding, ding, that would have been a red flag to us, but apparently some dealerships are afraid they’ll insult a big customer by refusing to accept a personal check. We wonder why they didn’t check with the bank to see if the couple had enough funds in their account to cover a check that big? But with today’s technology, maybe the dealer decided it was worth the gamble.

According to a criminal complaint filed later, the manager at the dealership did accept the check, and off went the couple in their shiny new Corvette.

A few hours later, the dealership discovered the check bounced and tried to get in touch with the couple. When calls went unanswered, the dealership disabled the vehicle through Onstar and found out where Mr. and Mrs. Perno were.

When Anthony emailed the dealership and told them the car wouldn’t crank, Reliable lived up to its name and offered a free tow back to the dealership, where police were waiting.

The Pernos apparently had the nerve to arrive at the dealer in another vehicle they had embezzled three months earlier!

They’ve now been charged with embezzlement, conspiracy, fraud, and issuing a worthless check.

With no prior criminal history, the two were released on their own recognizance by a judge on Friday.

When I worked at a Toyota dealership years ago we had a kid buy a brand new tundra with cash. He came back a week later with the truck completely smashed. Every body panel was destroyed and there was mud caked in every part of the undercarriage. He complained the rear diff and axle broke and wanted us to warranty it. Of course, we refused to repair under warranty. The guy made a huge scene and cursed us out shouting on the way out that we were all crooks.

Next morning one of our brand new tundras was sitting on the lot with the entire rear end gone.

Called the troopers who found him at home installing his new differential. He was arrested for vandalism and theft. Only after he was arraigned and out on bail we learned from the secret service that most of the cash he used was counterfiet.

The owner of the dealership offered to drop the charges if he would buy the truck he stole the rear end out of. Cash only. Of course the kid shows up at the dealership with another load of fake money where the secret service guys nabbed him redhanded.

Point to all of this is that crooks are remarkably stupid and believe they are too smart to get caught even when they leave obvious evidence. The idiots that wrote a fake check for the C7 does not surprise me at all.

I wonder if they can now sue the dealership for activating the kill engine option on a car that was titled to the new owners.

This kinda reminds me of when I bought my c7

I used a company check to pay for it. I signed my dads name like I've done 1000x before.

Everything is fine till we check out messages a day later when we find out the bank kicked our check back! They said because the signature ( looked suspicious) granted it was a big check and they were just being safe.

I called my sales guy told him what was up and that the bank will be overnighting a cashiers check.

Always check your answering machine every day

You're correct about stupidity on all points. I wonder if they got a judge from the same school as the one who gave the rapist three months (and his dad says "That's a steep price for twenty minutes of fun.") or the one who gave the kid probation for multiple vehicle homicides while he was drunk.

HUH????


Didn't the article state that they showed up at the Chevy dealership in a car that was gotten in a bogus manner??? How is it, then, that they "didn't have a prior criminal history"????



Freaking, left wing, liberal judges!!!

Much discussion about this at our local Cars and Coffee last Saturday. Apparently they also had a young child with them, and the dealership let them drive off with mom holding the child in her lap.

How about it. They'd have to clean up a LOT for me to be convinced they have 100 grand just laying around for a new car.

at the dumb f's at the dealership buying the broken 'printer' story. It's an IMprinter. They emboss the check in a press. They don't just break.
