    FL - Con man posed as doctor, lawyer and rabbi, Broward authorities say


    It's super con man!

    He's on probation for practicing law without a license. He's charged with carrying a foreign diplomat's passport. He got a badge from a Broward hospital identifying him as a doctor and clergyman. His second wife believed he was a rabbi.

    But David Vyner only has one true profession: con artist, according to the Broward sheriff's detective who spent months piecing together the Armenian immigrant's life in South Florida.

    "One day he becomes a lawyer. One day he becomes a doctor. One day he becomes a rabbi," said Detective John Calabro. "He has delusions of grandeur."

    A doctor, a rabbi and a lawyer walked into a bar...

    Within two months, Vyner had opened a new business, Consular Services Agency, on Hallandale Beach Boulevard and started advertising in Russian publications, according to court records. He offered to help obtain Russian passports and acquire Russian citizenship for children born in the United States.

    Calabro said a man with dual U.S.-Russian citizenship went to Vyner last month wanting to renew his Russian passport. The man handed over his documents and $1,050 to Vyner, only to return home to do an Internet search and find out about Vyner's criminal history, court records show.

    The man demanded the return of his documents and money but couldn't get them back, Calabro said. It turns out anyone renewing a Russian passport must do it in person at a consulate and that it only costs $30, court records show.
    Maybe it would be a good idea to google before handing over your documents and $1.050 to anybody.
