Forget fake Rolex, think about fake Lamborghini or Ferrari?
A paternalfather and son duo of Ferrari fraudsters have already been busted for selling fake sports cars, for between $45,000 to $60,000 each, from their workshop in the southern Brazilian state of Santa Catarina.
The cops seized eight partially finished fakes within the raid, though officials didn’t specify what sort of parts were used to create the knock-offs.
Badges, bucket seats along with other embroidered accessories emblazoned with the ongoing company logos were also seized. The raid was completed at the behest of the specific car-makers, following several official complaints.
The duo have been engaged in the high-end hoodwink for at the very least 2 yrs, having reportedly spent a combined twenty years in the automobile modification trade ahead of turning their talents to the fakes trade.
