Female White-Collar Crime Divas-Mordern Day Thieves

Timeshare rip-off nets over $6 million


“When poor, [the Romans] robbed others, and when rich, themselves.” Samuel Johnson

For moderate to high income individuals and families purchasing a time-share is a reasonable way to have a decent to ultra luxurious place to travel to and have the option of trading your time-share for various other locations throughout the world. Well, even with timeshares it seems that there are folks that are always busy coming up with a schemes of how to get money or property illegally. We read and hear about it so much in the news to the point that it is no big deal.

This is, yet another story that will only rise an eyebrow and that is only because of the money that’s involved – $6 million. The CrimeDiva today, is Kathryn G. Garten, 51, of Orlando, FL. Ms. Garten was arrested on an indictment by the Grand Jury in East St. Louis. She has been charged with one count of conspiracy to commit mail fraud and wire fraud in connection with telemarketing. The indictment alleges that Ms.Garten and others were engaged in an extensive telemarketing scam that stole from thousands of victims of approximately $6 million dollars. The victims were throughout the United States , Canada, other countries and included thirty-eight counties in Southern Illinois

According to the records, Ms. Garten and others allegedly placed cold calls to timeshare owners and falsely represented that their company had buyers for the owners’ timeshare property. She then solicited up front fees [several thousand dollars] from each victim for closing costs and promised its return at the closing. The company did not sell one single unit and the money went in the pockets of Ms. Garten and the others at the company. When convicted, Ms. Garten faces a term in prison of up to twenty-five years, a $250,000 fine, and five years supervised release.

Is there something in the water or in the air that’s breeding Greed. I know that taking a little here and there may not seem like a big deal to someone, but as you can see a little here and a little there adds up to a whole lot.  Help me put a stop to White-Collar Crime, buy a T-Shirt under $12, wear it and tell others about the site. The best way we can fight this is to educate others of these crimes and the real consequences of doing hard prison time.

Have you read something interesting this summer that you can share with someone else to prevent them or someone else from committing a white-collare crime. You think . . . no one you know would do such a thing, check out, and look at the many women no one thought would commit such a crime.  Read one of my short story for free on The Check or Password for Kindle Prime Members, or only .99 for others. Or read a intriguing novel, Trucker Nightmare and see how a youngwoman without fault of her own ends up in prison and learn what it takes to set her free.

 I would love to hear your thoughts about this or anything else that’s on your mind, so please feel free to leave a message.
