Fugitive Scots businessman goaded FBI on social media before arrest

A fugitive Scots businessman posted a series of bizarre videos on social media mocking the FBI for not arresting him while he was on the run.

Edinburgh-born Afzal Khan, 37, was last week flown back to the US from his bolthole in the United Arab Emirates to stand trial for an alleged luxury car fraud.

He fled America five years ago with his family after being accused of masterminding a £1.3 million scam from his car dealership in New Jersey.

He posted a string of rambling videos on Instagram complaining that the US authorities had not negotiated a deal for him to surrender.

Shaven-headed Khan – known as Bobby – posted one clip of himself wearing a long wig where he said: “They here yet? Going to arrest me? No?

“Pig vomit, I’m still waiting to get arrested. I grew hair. By the time they get to me I might be dead.”

Khan also filmed himself phoning the White House and telling the call handler: “I’m a fugitive from justice.”

He added the caption: “Riddle me this, Batman… how many FBI agents does it take to arrest a ‘most wanted’ fugitive????”

Khan has been charged with five counts of wire fraud and could be jailed for up to 100 years if he is convicted.

On its website, the FBI stated: “From approximately December, 2013, to September 2014, Khan allegedly obtained loans for vehicles that were never delivered, obtained loans for vehicles without proper title, and issued insufficient funds checks.”

The FBI also stated that additional fraudulent loans, and about 75 individual victims, had also been identified.

He is now being held in jail in New York after being snared last week and flown back to the US.

The father of two’s wife, Stephanie, has posted clips complaining about US law enforcement.
