Pennsylvania says it busted up fraudulent license plate ring
20 April 2017, 11:54 | Melissa Porter
Pennsylvania's attorney general's office is charging a dozen people as part of an organized crime ring that it says made millions of dollars renting out fraudulently obtained license plates, primarily in New York City. HH Motoring, LLC and LR Auto Transport LLC, both in Manheim, Lancaster County, are listed in the grand jury report as being involved in the fraud ring.
The alleged ringleader, 50-year-old Rafael Levi of Brooklyn, New York, faces almost 500 counts.
The fraudulent plates allowed people to avoid paying almost $2 million in fines and fees for parking, E-ZPass, insurance premiums, and vehicle loans. Shapiro says the investigation is ongoing into what was dubbed "Operation Car Wash".
The Levi organization used fraudulent means to register license plates to PennDot and used expired or invalid insurance policy numbers, records show.
Levi and his associates also provided fake insurance cards, used phony documents to obtain clean vehicle titles, rolled back odometer readings and obtained Pennsylvania driver's licenses using an address not belonging to any of the persons charged in the ring.
Attorney General Josh Shapiro was scheduled to discuss the case later Wednesday.
