Florida law enforcement authorities closed down another timeshare telemarketing business in Orlando on January 13th that investigators said was posing as a brokering service. Four people were arrested on Thursday, Kurt Neyworth, Andrew Nance, Eric Isaksen, and Catherine Keller. Police said they expect many more of the people working for the business — if not all — will eventually be charged.
Police said the scam was operating under several including Resort Services Group, Resort Time Share INC and Resort Sales Group. Police had been investigating the group since December.
The suspects arrested were Kurt Neyworth, 32, Andrew Nance, 28, and Eric Isaksen and Catherine Keller, both 34. Police said the four face charges of employing unlicensed sales people, telephone or communications soliciting without a license and a third, licensing-related charge.
State business records also list Isaksen as a manager of a business called Resort Vacation Specialists LLC, which dissolved in 2009.
