Real Housewives of NJ star accused of $1.7m luxury car scam arrested
https://mol.im/a/7991181


A flamboyant New Jersey businessman accused of running a $1.7million luxury car scam has been captured five years after he was added to the FBI's Most Wanted list.

Afzal 'Bobby' Khan, who appeared on 'The Real Housewives of New Jersey', had been on the run since October 2014 before he was arrested in the United Arab Emirates last week.

The 37-year-old, originally from Edinburgh in Scotland, is accused of duping customers and financial firms at a car dealership and faces up to 100 years in prison if convicted.

Khan opened the Emporio Motor Group in 2013 and maintained a high profile, appearing on the reality series alongside stars Joe and Melissa Gorga and Jacqueline Laurita. Members of the show's cast were also among his clients.

He was added to the FBI's 10 Most Wanted 'white collar criminals' list and a $20,000 reward was put up for him. The poster said: 'Khan has a scar on his right arm. He has ties to and may travel to the United Arab Emirates, Canada, the United Kingdom, and Pakistan.'

Special Agent in Charge Gregory W. Ehrie, of the FBI's Newark field office, said: 'Mr Khan came to the sobering reality that he could not outrun the FBI.

'People who flee to other countries to avoid prosecution only delay the inevitable and live every day with the knowledge that we are still in pursuit. Mr Khan obviously reached the conclusion that it wasn't worth it.

'The Newark field office would like to thank the dedicated members of law enforcement whose hard work and determination forced the hand of this fugitive and will now bring him to justice.'

Khan is now being held in Bergen County Jail in New Jersey while he awaits trial.

He has been accused of a massive fraud involving super cars including Lamborghinis, Porsches and Rolls Royces.

He is accused of obtaining loans from a bank for cars that he never delivered, but for which the purchaser was still responsible.

He also said to have obtained loans for cars that were delivered, but for which neither he nor Emporio had title documents.

As a result, the purchasers of these cars were liable for the loan, but could not register the vehicles.

I would guess it has a lot to do with him fleeing the country, where as Tim didn't necessarily run and hide.

I thought Tim did hide - and was given up by somebody who saw a pic of him on a boat in Newport?
