    The world of high-end automobiles is full of long waits and high price tags and this seems to have made it the perfect environment for fraud.

    In an interesting new report, The Drive takes a deep dive into a lawsuit filed against an employee at largest Porsche dealer in the United States – Champion Porsche of Pompano Beach, Florida. As the largest Porsche dealer in the country, Champion Porsche was a natural location for buyers to order rare and limited edition models which were both expensive and highly sought after.

    Unfortunately, it appears the dealership’s vice president of marketing concocted an elaborate scheme which bilked customers out of over $2.5 (£1.9 / €2.1) million. Citing the lawsuit, the publication says Shiraaz Sookralli ran into financial difficulties so he created a shell company called Champion Autosport. He then directed customers of Champion Porsche, who were ordering models such as the 911 GT3 and GT3 RS, to wire money to the fake company.
