Orlando Man Arrested for Timeshare Fraud
ORLANDO, Fla. – Officers with the Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services today arrested Jhon Correa of Orlando after an investigation into timeshare fraud. The victims alleged they received unsolicited calls from Orlando-Based United in Uniform stating that the company wanted to purchase the victims' unused timeshare weeks to be used by military service personnel.
“We will continue to protect consumers from those who steal and defraud Floridians. It's especially shameful to defraud people in the name of helping our nation's military,” said Commissioner of Agriculture Adam H. Putnam
The Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services received two complaints from victims against Orlando-based company United in Uniform.
According to the investigation, the victims sent payments to Pro Pac Spec Services LLC, which is affiliated with United in Uniform, to allow the timeshare transfer. The victims sent more than $6,400 to Pro Pac Spec Services, but the timeshares were never rented out and the money was not returned.
Correa (DOB 3/16/85) or 4402 Middlebrooke Road in Orlando, is the sole owner of Pro Pac Spec Services. He was charged with one count of Organized Scheme to Defraud, two counts of Grant Theft, and one count of Practicing Real Estate without a License, all third-degree felonies, and was booked into the Orange County Jail.
There may be other victims of this fraudulent scheme. Consumers who believe they may have been scammed by this company should call the Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services law enforcement hotline at (800) 342-5869.
