  • A criminal in Florida hacked into a delivery company’s website and diverted two exotic cars.
  • The company then brought the two cars, worth north of $500,000 in total, directly to him.
  • Now, police are still searching for the suspect while he reportedly taunts the delivery company.

Dealers need cars moved from point A to point B often. To complete that task efficiently, some leverage delivery companies. Now, police say that one suspect in Florida hacked into a delivery company system and had it bring two exotic cars to him. He’s reportedly still on the run and taunting the victims.

In the first case, the alleged hacker nabbed a 2024 Mercedes Benz GLS600 Maybach, worth around $200,000. Authorities believe that he found a way into the system of Dealer’s Choice Auto Transport where he could see delivery schedules, driver contact info, and more. He evidently was able to change the delivery location in the system.

“The criminal actually hacked into the driver’s portal and knew what vehicles were being transported, they knew what was going on. The thief happened to reach out to the driver acting as if he was the receiving party and gave him all the right information, told him where the car is supposed to go,” said CEO Steven Yariv to WSVN.

Next, the hacker went after a Rolls-Royce Cullinan, valued at roughly $400,000. In this case, he texted the delivery driver to change the drop-off address. The driver confirmed the address and the time and showed up with the Cullinan in tow. Now, the hacker is reportedly taunting his victims.

“Thanks for the free Maybach dawg,” he said before sending a photo of the GPS tracker removed from the car with the words “Bro, car already in Dubai, or Europe you guess.” Police might have a lead though.

During that Maybach delivery process, the driver actually snapped photos of the car and managed to catch the person picking it upin the background. It’s unclear at this point if he’s the same as the hacker but police are still investigating. There is a $20,000 reward for the return of each car.
