NYS OGS to auction off Maserati

ALBANY - In the market for a Maserati convertible worth nearly $80,000?

The state of New York has you covered.

The state Office of General Services next week will auction off a 2014 Maserati GranTurismo two-door convertible, one of dozens of vehicles that will be up for grabs.

The auction will begin at 9:30 a.m. on Nov. 2 at the Harriman State Office campus in Albany.

How does the state come into possession of an expensive, flashy sports car? Medicaid fraud.

The Maserati -- along with a 2014 BMW X6, which will also be up for auction -- were seized by state Attorney General Eric Schneiderman's office after a case in the Bronx turned up $9.9 million in fraudulent Medicaid claims.

The money from the auction will go to Schneiderman's Medical Fraud Unit.

The black Maserati has just 1,600 miles on it, according to the state. Kelly Blue Book values such a car at about $78,000 for a private sale.
