ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) - Thousands of clients may be victims of a telemarketing business that offered help selling timeshares.
Police made four arrests late Thursday. The Orlando-based business posed as a brokering service to bilk clients of cash.
Orlando police Sgt. Barbara Jones says clients who paid for services received nothing in return.
The business operated under several names, including Resort Services Group, Resort Time Share INC and Resort Sales Group.
Suspects arrested were 32-year-old Kurt Neyworth, 28-year-old Andrew Nance and 34-year-olds Eric Isaksen and Catherine Keller. They face charges of employing unlicensed sales people and telephone or communications soliciting without a license.
A police investigation continues.
