Limerick gang members arrested over collectible car scam. Many of the victims are older people who were targeted across the country. The fraudsters should have known that crime does not pay!
From irishtimes.com: Gardaí have arrested members of a Limerick-based organized crime gang on suspicion of running a vintage car fraud scam. The scammers are learning that crime does not pay!
The gang members are being questioned on suspicion they took possession of valuable vintage cars during transactions where only a small portion of the sale price was paid.
In other cases they are suspected of having advertised vintage cars for sale but when they received the sale price from the purchaser, a much inferior car was delivered to the customer.
Four suspects were arrested on Tuesday morning in Rathkeale where the gang members are based. The group under investigation is known to the Garda locally and also to national Garda units.
They have been involved in a very wide range of crimes for many years including thefts from farms and building sites along with antiques and jewellery.
