Tallahassee, Fla.—Attorney General Pam Bondi’s Office of Statewide Prosecution and the Florida Department of Law Enforcement announced yesterday the arrest of a Winter Park resident in connection to a scheme targeting victims of timeshare fraud. June Andriulaitis, 54, is a licensed timeshare salesperson who did business as Advocates for Senior, LCC.
“We will not allow unscrupulous individuals to further victimize consumers who have already been victimized by
timeshare fraud and are seeking financial help,” said Attorney General Pam Bondi. “My Office of Statewide Prosecution will continue to partner with the Florida Department of Law Enforcement to ensure any scammers seeking to make money with false promises are held accountable.”
“Agents believe there could be additional victims, both in Florida and outside of Florida,” said FDLE Commissioner Rick Swearingen. “If you have information about this case, please contact FDLE Orlando at (407) 245-0888.”
According to the FDLE investigation, Andriulaitis identified victims of timeshare fraud using leads purchased from timeshare brokers online, contacted the victims and offered to recover their money for a $99 fee. Once the consumers paid the fee, Andriulaitis allegedly did nothing to help and in some cases, duplicated the payment process to collect $99 multiple times from the same victims.
Andriulaitis faces charges of grand theft. Attorney General Pam Bondi’s Office of Statewide Prosecution will prosecute the case.
