Deputies: Malachi Love-Robinson tried to get an elderly woman to help buy him a Jaguar

He had previously been accused of impersonating a doctor and of larceny

(CNN) —  

Here we go again.

Malachi Love-Robinson, the 19-year-old charged earlier this year with practicing medicine without a license, has been arrested again.

This time, he’s accused of fraud for trying to buy a Jaguar with the help of an elderly co-signer – without the woman’s knowledge.

Authorities said the teen walked into a Virginia car dealership Friday and tried to buy the $35,000 car. Love-Robinson listed the elderly woman, whom he described as his godmother, as the co-signer.

But dealership employees got suspicious after some comments made by the teen.

“They Googled his name and found that a subject with the same name had been arrested numerous times on fraud type charges” in Florida, the Stafford County Sheriff’s Office said.

So the employees told Love-Robinson they would call him when his credit application was approved. And the teen left.

Half an hour later, the dealership called him back – this time, with two deputies waiting to talk to Love-Robinson and the elderly woman.

“He stated she had agreed to co-sign the loan for the Jaguar he was going to purchase,” the sheriff’s department said. He also admitted that he was out of jail on bond from the state of Florida for practicing medicine without a license, deputies said.

The woman, however, told different story.

She told deputies she was a distant relative of the teen’s, the sheriff’s office said. When asked whether she was willing to co-sign a loan application for Love-Robinson, the woman said she had no intention to.

“Deputy McCormick then showed her the credit application Mr. Love-Robinson had completed that had her information including her social security number listed on it,” the sheriff’s department said.

“Her demeanor then changed, and she stated she had not given permission to him to use her as a co-signer for this loan or any other.”

But a credit card check revealed someone had used her account the day before to buy two iPads and a cell phone, totaling $1,200.

“Mr. Love-Robinson had been bragging to the employees of the dealership earlier that day about two iPads he had recently purchased,” the sheriff’s office said. “They were seized along with other items at the time of his arrest.”

Love-Robinson now faces charges of false statements to obtain credit, obtaining money by false pretenses and identity fraud. He is in custody at the Rappahannock Regional Jail – this time with no bond.

His last known attorney did not immediately return a request for comment Monday.

Teen: I’m not an M.D., but a Ph.D.

Love-Robinson’s bizarre notoriety began in February, when Florida authorities arrested him on suspicion of practicing medicine without a license.

An undercover officer had visited Love-Robinson’s office, where the teen physically examined the officer and provided medical advice, the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office said.

As police led the teen out of his office in handcuffs, he said, “I’m hurt because o
