Anyone else see the article about a Porsche salesman who pocketed $2.5million in deposits on the 911 GT3 & RS? Apparently he forged documents and deposited the money into a bank account.

Porsche Salesman Has Disappeared With $2.5M In Customer Deposits

I know BMW has a site where you can check status correct?

2.5 million is not nearly enough to disappear for good. Just sayn.

Not sure about checking online.

For the M2 I gave my local dealer and the Orlando dealer each a certified check for 1k on the dealers name not an individual.

For the Competition I left a 1k personal check at the local dealer (still haven't cashed, they didn't even want to take it from me) and second dealer I did a 1k payment on a card.

This guy to walk with 2.5M is insane!!

It seems he forged documents & opened an account to put the deposits into. There is more to the story as well.

a bit more

The buyers trusted Sookralli because he worked for Champion Porsche, the top dealership in the country for the luxury sports car.

But it has since been revealed that Sookralli allegedly set up a shell company, wiring their deposits into a secret bank account that has since been emptied out.

Now Champion Porsche is suing Sookralli and claims it was completely unaware of what its marketing VP was doing behind the scenes.
