In case you haven’t been keeping an eye on the news, Ponzi schemer Byron Keith Brown has been sentenced to fifteen years in jail, and all his assets are being auctioned off to pay restitution to his victims. His company, In God We Trust Financial Services, operated under various names in Virginia and Maryland and liberated his clients of $17 million in personal investments.
Luckily for his victims, Mr. Brown has quite an admirable car collection. The 17 cars up for sale at Manheim Auctions include a Maybach, a Maserati, a Laborghini, several Rolls-Royces, a Jaguar, a GMC truck, and then some. In other words, Mr. Brown was an “I’ll take one of each” kind of guy until his arrest. There are no official estimates on how much the auction is supposed to fetch, but if the world is fair, it will go a long way towards paying back the poor saps that invested in this fool.
