Florida Man Buys New Porsche With Check Printed on Home Computer


Recently, 42-year-old Casey William Kelley walked into a Porsche dealership in Destin, Florida, and managed to drive off with a brand new, white Porsche 911. However, the really impressive thing about that is that he only traded a useless piece of paper for it. Kelley had reportedly printed the check for $139,203.05 on his home printer, but staff let him take the car without waiting to see if the check cleared. They must have fallen for the conman’s confident attitude. In fact, he was so proud of himself that he even asked staff to take a picture of him with the car before driving away. The police report showed that the amateur conman didn’t stop with a Porsche. After seeing that his method work, he went back home, printed another check for $61,521 and used it at a jeweler in Miramar Beach the next day — only this time, the owner didn’t let him walk out with the three Rolex watches he had bought until he cashed the check. By the time the jeweler reported the check as fake, the Porsche dealership in Destin had figured that out as well, and Kelley had already been arrested for the first incident. He was taken into custody on a charge of grand theft of a motor vehicle and a charge of fraud for the watches. Interestingly, the Florida conman claimed he didn’t understand what he had done wrong. Now he has until September 22nd — when he’s scheduled to appear in court — to figure that out.
