Winter Park woman arrested for time share fraud

10/14/2016
 
WINTER PARK, Fla. – After an investigation by agents with the Florida Department of Law Enforcement, authorities arrested June Andriulaitis, 54, 3040 Aloma Ave., Apt. H-13, Winter Park, Fla., on charges of grand theft.  Andriulaitis, a licensed timeshare salesperson, did business under the name, “Advocates for Senior, LCC.” 
 
Agents believe Andriulaitis identified victims of timeshare fraud using leads purchased from timeshare brokers online.  Once potential victims were identified, she contacted them and offered to recover their money for a fee of $99.  Once the fee was paid, Andriulaitis did nothing to help the victims and in some cases, duplicated the payment process to collect $99 multiple times from the same victims.
 
“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.”
 
Andriulaitis was arrested yesterday and booked into the Orange County Jail on $500,000 bond.  Attorney General Pam Bondi’s Office of Statewide Prosecution will prosecute the case.
