When you tell someone you're going to bring home an endurance race, you'd better do it, especially if those you've promised it to gave you a bunch of money.
Curtis Boggs told Cincinnati they'd get a 24-hour endurance race, then there wasn't one, then he fled to Mexico. He had collected $455,700.
But the FBI was on his trail, and caught him crossing the border into California, where they believe he's been holed up since his alleged scam was discovered. Federal grand jury indictment documents say that Boggs had promised investors a 10 to 15 percent return, but that he instead used the money for house payments and a new Lincoln MKX, among other personal uses.
