FLA Repo Man Charged with Fraud and Grand Theft

c_nck_inzloOcala, FL – April 17, 2013 – When a Florida Buy Here Pay Here dealer hired 42 year old Christian “Nick” Inzillo to repossess several cars for them, they were a little dismayed in his results. After he only recovered one, a tip led them to the truth of why.

On Monday, a part-owner for Kingdom Motors told Deputy Roman Gabriel that Christian “Nick” Inzillo was contracted to repossess vehicles and was given documents to track them down. The man Inzillo had repossessed only one vehicle and repeatedly had told him he was unable to find the other vehicles. The man said he later got a tip that Inzillo was collecting money in exchange for not repossessing vehicles.

The deputy talked with one man who said he paid Inzillo $260, in two installments, so his vehicle would not be repossessed. A woman said Inzillo received a little more than $1,000 for not repossessing her vehicle. A third person alleged Inzillo was given $350 for not repossessing a vehicle.

In each case, the people told the deputy, Inzillo issued them a receipt and they believed he was acting on behalf of Kingdom Motors. Inzillo also told them he would be back for more money, according to reports.

Inzillo, 42, was found by the deputy and a detective and was interviewed about the allegations. He was then arrested and taken to the Marion County Jail.

In 2012 while Inzillo was incarcerated on drug charges, he told corrections officials he was assaulted by two inmates in an altercation over bartering food trays. His jaw was broken and he underwent surgery. Jail officials charged one inmate with battery. Inzillo was charged with bartering.

  1. This IS a black eye for the repo trade, because this is what most people will remember when the topic of repossession get brought up. For the professionals that have received training and are properly insured and licensed this guy will be unfortunatly the face most will see. for those that don’t think so remember this, you can do the best job everyday and it becomes the norm but screw up just once and that is what most people will remember, the day you let them down. If the states that have laws on the books would enforce them the way they should be, things like this would be a rare occasion. This should be sent to the politicians in Illinois that decided to give dealers and a few others an exemption from complying with the law that was passed last year, it is exactly what I imagine the supporters of the law were trying to avoid.

  2. why is it a black eye for “us”. I hope the dealer gets fined for every repo he gave this idiot. I want the dealer to feel the pain in his wallet so he will remember this lesson.

  3. This clown is not a Florida licensed recovery agent and the dealer is just as guilty because he knows the law regarding unlicensed activity. I have filed a complaint with the Division of Licensing and they are actively investigating. Inzillo was arrested and charged with fraud. Maybe he will be put back in the same cell with the same two who broke his jaw the last time he was jailed. Too bad the dealer was not arrested and put in the same cell.

  4. WOW Wonder how much Kingdom Motors saved not hiring a true professional repossession agency ? You know if you pay peanuts you get monkeys.
