The Factor has learned there is now a warrant out for a Houston man who simply wanted to buy a new car. But the case is not that simple.
According to court records that man, identified as James Daniel Miller, filled out a credit application for a car loan in 2011.
In the documentation he presented a statement of earnings and told the bank his income was over $150,000 a year.
With an income like that the bank approved his loan for $41,000 at Helfman Jeep.
After making one payment Miller allegedly stop paying the loan according to investigators.
Helfman repossessed his car from his home but the case wasn’t over.
Police began asking questions about the loan.
The suspect in the case claimed he made that six figure salary as an employee at MD Anderson Cancer Center.
HPD investigators contacted the human resources director there and learned Miller actually only made $30,000 a year when he worked at the facility back in 2001.
Now, there is a warrant out for his arrest for False Statement to Obtain Credit.
So, if you’re thinking about beefing up that salary – think again!
