A California man was charged Thursday with bilking investors of $3.3 million while posing as an Oscar-winning designer of sound effects.

Investigators say Carrington used some of the proceeds of his crimes to buy a 2003 Lamborghini Murcielago, a 2005 Hummer H2 and a 2006 Mercedes SL500R, with a combined value of almost $500,000, the San Francisco Chronicle reported. Prosecutors are seeking forfeiture of the cars.
