Car Salesman Accused of Costing Fiat Chrysler $8.7 Million With Employee Discount Scam

A car salesman in Michigan is being accused of costing Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) $8.7 million in a wire fraud scam.

Bolton claims to be working for various used car lots in Kansas City, or at least that how he advertises on Facebook.

For example, the first upset customer of Bolton’s we met was Briana Roland who
