A self-made crypto-millionaire revealed his horror after his luxury vehicle was crudely vandalized with expletives after it was left in an open car park.
20-year-old Waseem Khan, who made his fortune trading cryptocurrency, had left his $110,000 Audi R8 V10 parked in Leeds overnight when he went to Manchester for a business meeting. When he arrived back at the car the next day, someone had written various insults and comments on the car in black spray paint.
Khan made his fortune trading cryptocurrency. He decided to dash out a lot of his money to buy the dream vehicle.
Waseem said he was shocked to see someone had done this to the car but says it won’t phase him. The millionaire, who grew up with very little says he can make $7,2000 “while he sleeps”.
He told LeedsLive:
“I left town last night, around 11, 12ish.
“I got called for a business meeting, they said they were gonna pick me up and go to Manchester, so I left my car in the city centre.
“I didn’t think about where I had parked it, came home this afternoon, and I went to get my car and it has been fully vandalised, and I thought it is definitely someone that knows me or something.
“It just shows, even if you are doing something good in life, there is a lot of hate”
“I don’t really have any enemies, I think a lot of people just can’t see someone young, do good, you know I have a supercar at 20, they can’t put up with it.”
The graffiti calls Waseem a show-off and a virgin as well as telling him to die. Several offensive words were also painted onto the car, calling him a c*** and a b******.
“I saw it and I was gutted, I thought I could take it off, I took it to the car wash and it was not coming off, that is when I started worrying that it needed a paint job or a new wrap sheet.
“It’s not going to phase me, they did it when I wasn’t there, if I was there I don’t think they would have had the urge to do anything like that.
“It’s not much of a loss for me, I make £6-7,000 in my sleep.”
He has called for the “childish” person who damaged his car to come forward.
He said: “What you have done is very low and pathetic and childish, they could be following their own dreams instead of destroying someone else’s. The dangers of being on social media is you attract a lot of good people and a lot of bad people. I would like the person that did it, to come forward.”
