Fraud Charges Filed Against Slingerlands Couple

Slingerland Fraud Car Arrest

A Slingerlands couple is under arrest for selling cars through fraudulent means, and it's not the first time the couple has been charged with defrauding car buyers.

State police got reports that Timothy and Kimberly Shaffer falsely advertised a car for sale on the internet and sold it.

Police say the car had an odometer that didn't work.

The Shaffers first charged in 2000 as part of a larger four- year car fraud scheme that sold over 130 cars that were supposedly low mileage cars. 

Police say all had tampered odometers, some had false paperwork.
