Scott Rothstein, Florida Ponzi brought in $5.8 million this week for those who suffered great loses in the investment fraud proposal. The total amount of $5.8 million was brought in by the auction of Rothstein goods which was held at the Broward County Convention Center. It has been reported by the Sun-Sentinel that the auction started almost two hours late and was such a huge audience for the affair since we are talking about Rothstein’s expensive toys.
Scott Rothstein’s luxury cars which included 2 Ferraris a Bugatti, a Lamborghini Murcielago, a ’67 Corvette Stingray, a Bentley, a Rolls Royce, a Maserati and a Mercedes McLaren, was out and up for grab and no wonder there was a line up for it. The supercars were cleverly displayed around the exhibition hall behind velvet ropes, with maximum security and even the IRS agents watching vigilantly over them over the crushing crowds.
Rothstein’s most desirable possessions the luxury yachts were scattered to the winds at a scorching pace Thursday with an international crowd bidding for the well polished steel and elegant fiberglass status symbols. The lots included 17 in all and in little over an hour the supercars, four yachts and two Wave Runners were the happiness of new owners. The Princess Kimberly and the 87-foot Warren yacht went for $2.51 million. The $1.5 million Bugatti for was sold for $858,000. The total amount of $5.8 million will be furthered to the reimbursement funds for the victims of Scott Rothstein’s $1.4 billion investment scam scheme.
After almost everything was sold, the crowd began to thin and within minutes the Broward County Convention hall was pretty much empty.
