After banking millions of dollars and amassing a huge car collection, one Michigan man’s illegal scam has caught up with him. Cleveland.com reports that Najeeb Khan has been sentenced to eight years in prison for stealing $180 million in a check fraud scheme.
Khan’s scheme started with his ownership and operation of a payroll processing company called Interlogic Outsourcing Inc. This wasn’t a small time operation; the Justice Department says at one point the company had 6,000 clients. Beginning in 2014 however, Khan got greedy:
It paid off to the tune of $150 million, with the Justice Department saying countless businesses were defrauded. These millions helped to fund Khan’s lavish lifestyle that included properties in multiple states, planes, yachts and a massive car collection.
We’re talking about a car collection that wouldn’t look out of place as its own museum. After the Feds seized everything, the 280 vehicle collection went up for sale at RM Sotheby’s in 2020. Khan had everything from a 2016 Ford F-350 to John Deer farm equipment, vintage motorcycles like a 1959 Giulietta Super Sport, a Delorean, a Jensen Intercepter, Shelby Series 1, a Jaguar XJ220, etc. Honestly, the man had taste. It was a damn fine car collection that you can still check out here even though every single one sold.
Khan, for his crimes, won’t ever see any of those vehicles again. He was sentenced to eight years in federal prison. Speaking to the court, Khan admits that he was “blinded by greed” and says he’s sorry for what he did. “I’m humbled with deep regret and remorse to all the victims whose lives were negatively impacted by my actions and greed.”
