(Scroll down for video) A man was arrested after conning women into buying him luxury cars, including a Lamborghini and Corvette.
Sadly, the women were left humiliated and in huge debt.
Police in Missouri, said that Timothy Rossell, 28, came up with an elaborate scheme to defraud unsuspecting women.
Rossell was dating several women at the same time. He met the women through the dating website “Plenty of Fish.”
He told the women from Pennsylvania, Florida, and Union, Missouri, that he was a U.S. Marshal, and he had fake badges and an official looking car to prove it.
Police said that he persuaded the women to buy luxury cars for him in their names. He drove the luxury cars before selling them and claiming that the vehicles were stolen.
His scheme was uncovered after his fiancee found out that he had opened credit cards in her name without her consent and he racked up $20,000 in debt.
She also found some federal IDs with his photo, but they had a different name.
Rossell was charged with four counts of identity theft and one count of impersonating a federal officer.
