Scam alert

November 18, 2010

A man who bounced two personal checks for cars at a Skokie dealership has committed a series of deceptive acts in the United States and Canada, according to the FBI.


Karim Asllani lists a Northbrook address as his home. That house, records show, is in foreclosure. Asllani has short hair and is about 5 feet 9 inches tall, about 190 pounds. Arrest warrants have been issued for Asllani in Illinois, California and Canada. 

He reportedly issued a $51,000 check for a new car, then several days later arranged for a used car at the dealership, also with a personal check.


After many calls from the dealership to Asllani, he returned both vehicles overnight to the dealer’s lot about 10 days later.
