li-Million Auto Swindle
Charged to Brooklyn Man
• y Ai»oo«'«d
NEW YORK May 20 —A Brook
lyn man is accused of netting
close to *1.500.000 through the
cash sale of used cars he allegedly
never delivered.
William Corcoran, jr.. 31-year
old naval reservist, was booked
yesterday on grand larceny
charges involving the alleged used
car swindle.
Miles F McDonald Brooklyn
district attorney, gave this de
scription of the alleged swindle
! Corcoran would purchase a
,shmy new car with low mileage
at a used car lot.
He then would park the car
outside some large office building
or factory and wait for workers
to pass by and admire it. Then
Corcoran would strike up a con
versation with the employes and
offer to sell the car several hun
dred dollars below market value.
Word of the bargain would get
around and other workers would
want the same "buy.” Corcoran
then collected cash payments in
advance, but never delivered the
cars.
The district attorney said Cor
coran's activities extended Into
New York. New Jersey. Pennsyl
vania, New Hampshire and Ver
mont. Mr. McDonald said more
than 800 persons may have been
defrauded In the alleged scheme.
