Malachi Love-Robinson, the teen who was charged back in February 2016 with practicing medicine without a license has now been arrested yet again!
Earlier this year the 18-year-old made the news after he was busted running a fake medical practice in Florida (click HERE if you missed that).
This time, the fraudulent M.D. is being accused of fraud after he attempted to purchase a high-end luxury vehicle using someone else’s name.
According to CNN News, Love-Robinson tried to buy a Jaguar with the help of an elderly co-signer…. unfortunately the woman had no idea she was purchasing a car!
Authorities said the teen walked into a Virginia car dealership Friday and tried to buy the $35,000 car.
Love-Robinson listed the elderly woman, whom he described as his godmother, as the co-signer.
But dealership employees got suspicious after some comments made by the teen.
“They Googled his name and found that a subject with the same name had been arrested numerous times on fraud type charges” in Florida, the Stafford County Sheriff’s Office said.
So the employees told Love-Robinson they would call him when his credit application was approved. And the teen left.
“He stated she had agreed to co-sign the loan for the Jaguar he was going to purchase,” the sheriff’s department said.
When authorities questioned the woman, she had a different story… she told deputies she was a distant relative of the teen’s, and when asked if she was willing to co-sign a loan application for Love-Robinson, the woman said she had no intention to.
“Deputy McCormick then showed her the credit application Mr. Love-Robinson had completed that had her information including her social security number listed on it,” the sheriff’s department said.
“Her demeanor then changed, and she stated she had not given permission to him to use her as a co-signer for this loan or any other.”
A credit card check revealed that someone had also used the elderly woman’s account the day before to purchase two iPads and a cell phone, totaling $1,200.
“Mr. Love-Robinson had been bragging to the employees of the dealership earlier that day about two iPads he had recently purchased,” the sheriff’s office said.
“They were seized along with other items at the time of his arrest.”
The fraudulent MD now faces charges even more charges, including making false statements to obtain credit, obtaining money by false pretenses and identity fraud.
Love-Robinson is now back in custody at the Rappahannock Regional Jail — this time with no bond.
His last known attorney did not immediately return a request for comment Monday.
Once a fraud… always a fraud!
