Police: LI Man Scams Bank Out Of $100,000 To Buy Porsche
ROSLYN HEIGHTS, NY (WCBS 880) – Maybe he’s got a thing for fast cars.
Nassau County police say William Mure, 30, used stolen W-2 forms to get a $100,000 loan from M&T Bank in Jericho on March 25.
The bank, however, had realized they’d been scammed. The dealership received a stop payment notice on the check, but it was too late – Mure had already driven away in his fancy new car.

Mure didn’t know his scam had fallen through, police say. He returned to the dealer Tuesday to pick up his title paperwork. That’s when he was arrested.
Mure faces Grand Larceny and Possession of a Forged Instrument charges.
