Here's the Plot for Your Next Con-Game Thriller

Man Accused of Stealing More Than 40 Cars Using Paper Work: "It's a local scam so big the feds are involved. 'We have alleged he essentially gave a bad check for cars and before the checks cleared he took the cars off the lot and re-sold them to other dealers' Fort Bend County Deputy District Attorney Scott Carpenter is talking about suspect Thinh Tieu.
[. . . .]
Tieu is charged in Fort Bend County with first degree felony theft. 'It's over $1,000,000 worth of cars. He actually took over 40 autos from Mercedes Benz of Sugar Land' says Carpenter.

Not just any cars.

'One of the cars was a Ferrari. He also scammed them out of twenty Mercedes Benz and a variety of other cars' says Carpenter. Once the cars were sold to other dealerships they were then bought by the general public."
