Several businesses, people face charges for license plate fraud

Six individuals, ring leader Rafael Levi helped others avoid millions in fines

PENNSYLVANIA - Fourteen businesses in Pennsylvania and a dozen people are facing charges after allegedly falsely obtaining license plates and profiting off of them. 
 
Six individuals were part of that crime ring with Rafael Levi, of Brooklyn, as the alledged ring leader, according to the Pennsylvania State Attorney's Office.  
 
They said by illegally renting license plates in New York City and other locations and then selling them, they helped residents avoid paying more than one million dollars in parking fines and E-Z Pass tolls across Pennsylvania, New York and Florida. The group also provided fake insurance cars, rolled back odometers on cars and wrote phony letters to PennDOT.
