Timeshare Exit Telemarketing Scam Sends Florida Man To Prison
Mark Boring, a 47-year-old man from St. Petersburg, Florida, was recently sentenced to several years in federal prison for participating in a telemarketing scam, which scammed timeshare owners out of thousands of dollars.
Boring was a co-conspirator in a much larger plot geared towards taking advantage of timeshare owners looking to sell their timeshare properties. The conspirators involved in this timeshare exit scam inundated their victims with phone calls, in which they impersonated real estate agents. They continually demanded upfront payments in exchange for selling their timeshare property in a reasonable time period.
Through a slew of timeshare exit fees and other exorbitant payments, Boring and his fellow conspirators collected thousands of dollars from innocent victims through wire fraud. As part of his sentence, Boring is responsible for paying $895,011.03 to the victims of this timeshare exit scam.
This telemarketing scam adds to a long list of timeshare exit scams that continue to plague timeshare owners seeking to safely exit their timeshare.
