This Guy Convinced the Women he Dated into Buying him Lamborghini Gallardo and Corvette Z06

At first glance at the headline, all of us probably have only one thing to say; kudos to this guy. Well, it isn’t all that rosy. He’s charged with four counts of identity theft and one count of impersonating a federal officer. That’s what he had to do in order to get these flashy cars, including the $200,000 Lamborghini Gallardo. Needless to say, since we’re reading all this, he’s currently in jail.


Timothy Rossell, 28 started dating women from Florida, Pennsylvania and Missouri through the “Plenty of Fish” dating site. He managed to “convince” all of them into buying him expensive cars. Although all were in their name, he was the sole driver. That way, he got the Lamborghini Gallardo and Corvette Z06 from his Ft. Meyers, Florida victim, and Cadillac Escalade, Ford Mustang Shelby, and Can-Am Spyder from the Union, Missouri victim to whom he was even engaged.


Rossell told his victims he was a US Marshal and paramedic, and he even had a US Marshal identity card and bulletproof vest to bolster his lies. He then “offloaded” some of his cars by selling them and cashing in on the profits while reporting them stolen at the same time.


Rossell’s fiance and victim from Missouri was the one who had broken up his scheme. She found some credit cards on her name she didn’t know anything about, and then she stumbled upon Rossell’s federal IDs with fake names. After she confronted Rossell, he fled in the Lamborghini Gallardo, only for it to develop a flat tire in Effingham, Illinois where he was later apprehended by the police.

That makes me think. I look at least two times better than him. I guess I could at least get an Aventador that way. Or, why not, one of these two McLaren P1 GTRs. I don’t mind the fact they’re second hand.

About Nikola Potrebić

Although driving a piece of junk, Nikola is a true car enthusiast. Precious few things move him as muscle cars do - especially those from the bygone golden era. Which makes him wonder; why wasn't he born a few decades earlier? Well, at least he's been able to enjoy the likes of Pontiak Aztek, Fiat Multipla, and their "lovely" coevals this way - right? (sigh)
