More than $319,000 will be returned to victims of a timeshare scam, according to a news release from the Federal Trade Commission.
The FTC said Information Management Forum Inc., which also did business as Vacation Property Marketing, and its owner, Edward Lee Windsor swindled the money from victims through "registration fees". The defendants made "unsolicited telemarketing calls to timeshare owners and falsely claimed to have renters or buyers lined up for the timeshare property."
Those affected stand to receive an average of $945. The FTC asks that the recipients cash the check within 60 days.
