A Florida teenager who is already facing multiple charges for impersonating a doctor is faced with even more charges in a separate Virginia fraud case, NBC reports.
A Virginia grand jury has indicted Malachi Love-Robinson for attempting to illegally buy a $35,000 Jaguar. The 19-year-old was arrested on Sept. 9 in Stafford - charged with false statements to obtain credit, false pretension in obtaining money, and identity fraud as he tried to purchase the luxury vehicle at a car dealership in Stafford, Virginia.
The employees, who became suspicious of the situation, duped Love-Robinson into telling him that they wanted to reaffirm on his credit, while they actually called the police. They then informed the teen that his credit application had been approved and that he could come pick up his car.
The teen was reportedly accompanied by an elderly woman he claimed to be his relative, to help him finance the vehicle. "The employees became highly suspicious of the situation due to the things Love-Robinson was talking about," the Stafford County Sheriff's Office said following the arrest. "They Googled his name and found a subject with the same name had been arrested several times on fraud cases in Florida."
The police showed up at the dealership to talk to Love-Robinson and the elderly woman. The woman told them that she had absolutely no intention of co-signing for the car or giving the dealership her information. Love-Robinson was eventually arrested.
Last year in February, Love-Robinson was also arrested for running an illegal medical office in Palm Beach County in Florida. He was caught after performing a physical exam on an undercover agent which at that time was offering medical consultation without a license.
