Ouch!
Looks like a lot of people were not paying attention to what this guy was doing.
Having his wages garnished by AMEX should have been a red flag to keep an eye on what he was doing.
I'm thinking the dealership has insurance to cover this type of activity so they should be whole--as will the customers,
Having said that, this doesn't speak well about the dealership runs their shop, given the perp has been linked to a similar episode a few years back.

It's been 6 years since we ordered a car so I don't remember the particular steps once the order is taken and a deposit is given, but IIRC, we did get a build date for sure--not sure if there was some sort of production order attached to it.

I can't imagine what insurance they would have that would cover employees stealing money from customers outside of the dealership.

Good question, but I think it might depend on the ownership's view of their staff and how much trust they have in them. Champion may have had this in place.
What bothers me about the story is :
1) Reportedly,the VP had his wages garnished by AMEX--so the dealer had to know he had some on going financial problems.
2) Reportedly, he was involved in a similar scheme in 2016.

Not sure how he survived the first episode, but a schemer with financial problems-- involved at a high level in an organization-- should have set off some alarms.
