Car Fraudster On FBI’s Most Wanted List Wants To Surrender, Authorities Reject His Terms

Afzal ‘Bobby’ Khan is one of FBI’s Most Wanted fugitives and, after being on the run for five years over fraud charges, says that he wants to surrender, but claims is being ignored by the United States government.

Khan was charged in 2014 with running a fraudulent car dealership, where he is accused of taking large loans out for clients and failing to deliver on the car they thought they had purchased. In his time as the head of Emporio Auto Group in Ramsey, New Jersey, he is suspected of defrauding customers with falsified financial transactions and misleading sales agreements.

FBI placed a $20,000 reward for information leading to his arrest. In 2015 a grand jury indicted Khan for allegedly swindling $1.7 million from one bank through nearly two dozen loans, but investigators later identified at least 75 more victims.

Now Khan is claiming, in an exclusive interview with Fox News, that he has been trying to negotiate his surrender for years: “What more do I have to do? I’m basically practically begging you. I’m a fugitive from justice saying ‘arrest me’.”

Local newspaper reports from 2016 indicate he did send an open letter to prosecutors, proclaiming his innocence and agreeing to return if similar charges against his younger brother were dropped.

“I’m not pleading guilt, I’m not pleading innocence,” Khan said by phone from an undisclosed location. “The point is I need to get my wife and kids home so I can stand trial.”
Khan is asking that prosecutors allow his family to return to the United States with him upon his surrender, skirting a $60,000 fine for overstaying their visas they would otherwise incur if they flew commercially.

“[The prosecutor] is gonna spend $20,000 to get information about me and then who knows how much money he’s had to spend trying to chase me around the world. Let me walk into an embassy. You’ve got a military jet going home, throw me in with my wife and kids.”

The New Jersey U.S. Attorney’s Office would not comment on the case, nor would the FBI, but former New Jersey Assistant U.S. Attorney Joseph Mack says Khan’s request is a tall order from a man on the run.

“He has created this issue. He has created this quagmire. And now he’s looking for the Department of Justice to fix that for him. And I think that’s where the difficulty in this and this issue is,” Mack said. “I think it’d be tough to have a lot of sympathy for someone that has created that situation for his family.”

Khan claims his two children have not attended school or seen a doctor in the five years he’s been on the run, and that his wife struggles with constant pain. “It is beyond difficult constantly looking over your shoulder. Being a mother and having children and them not being able to go to school like they would if we were back home is very difficult”, Stephanie Khan said.

According to The Washington Examiner, his alleged victims are also less than happy to hear he’s trying to strike a deal. “The amount of people he hurt, what he caused… he deserves whatever the punishment might be,” Gary Burnstein, who claims he lost about $1 million from bad deals with Khan.

Currently, he is in an unknown country that does not have an extradition treaty with the U.S. If, however, he is apprehended and found guilty, he could be facing up to 100 years in jail…
