Too long to read lol, can you just sum it up lol.
Basically, the story is this guy has been posting over there for quite awhile now,has over 500 posts over the last year. Came in saying he bought an STI 22b. Said he was American but living in London England an making a ridiculous amount of money as an investment banker. Said he had ordered a new '13 F10 M5, which he took delivery of only 3 weeks after placing his order. Some saw that as a little far fetched, but most accepted him as being legitimate. He even posted up a thread about his daughter being born, and pics of his 'fiancée'. He was even known to give financial advice to members. Then this thread came along. He gave a big story about how he had always dreamed of owning an F40, and how he was now in the position to make that dream a reality. He claimed to be unsure of the parking situation at his current home in London, as it only had a one car garage and parking for two outside, which supposedly was already spoken for. However, he would be moving in the near future to a home in the country with a 5 car garage. This is when things started to unravel. Someone recognized the picture of the five car garage. It belonged to a house dating back to somewhere around the year 1080, and rebuilt in 1550. Cool right? Except it is still very much for sale, and for $21,000,000. I can't remember the square footage but it was massive, and former owners include the Penn family. As in Pennsylvania. Then someone pointed out it was nowhere near where he said it was. Then someone checked into the pictures of his current house. Guess what? All the pictures he posted were from a real estate listing.

So long story short, this guy trolled the biggest car forum on the net for about a year. Hard. The theory is he would invite members to invest with him and attempt to commute fraud.

It's pretty funny now that it's busted, and teaches a valuable lesson: don't trust anyone online, you never know who is really behind what username.

Are you kidding? It's an F40! It's basically a raw, street legal racecar. The wing is purely functional.
LOL! I know it is functional for the car. The wing does fit the car perfectly though. It really does. Just not my "cup of tea". :)
