Default Man accused of conning women to buy him Lamborghini and Corvette

UNION (KMOV.com) -
A Lamborghini is a rare sight in Union and that's why a white Lamborghini Gallardo valued at $200,000 seen cruising the streets recently turned so many heads.

However, Union police say the driver was a criminal with an elaborate scheme to get expensive sports cars, He's now in jail.

Timothy Rossell, 28, is charged with four counts of identity theft and one count of impersonating a federal officer.

His neighbor, Bob Brown told News 4, "Well, he's a shyster, and should be in jail"

Investigators say Rossell began dating women in Pennsylvania, Florida and Union, Missouri after meeting them through the dating website 'Plenty of Fish.' In each relationship, police say he convinced the women to buy cars in their name which he drove and later sold but claimed the vehicles were stolen.

Looks like an easy business plan UD can explore for increasing his inventory of high mileage vehicles.

Is "conning" women spelled correctly?

With his luck? Match, POF, Tinder, Craigs List, Back Pages, etc... I don't see that being a solid business plan.

I have a client who told me an interesting story. The client knows a detective that was used to do work on investments that they would do. For example, the detective would make sure the company actually exists, follow the trucks to make sure they actually do deliveries, etc.

Ok so the private detective was on retainer for years. One day he comes to my client and says that the client's wife tried to hire him. My client was like, WTF does she think I am cheating? And the detective says - no - she thinks her personal trainer is cheating on her.

Apparently she gave this trainer $10k towards a purchase of a new Porsche - and the trainer got the Porsche within a week of cash receipt. So she was jealous he was banging other married women.

Needless to say, the trainer was banging about 10 north shore rich bitches and had multiple cars that were all paid for by them.

My client is happily divorced now. But Illinois being Illinois, she still ended up with half.
