Last year we reported on Jennifer Kirk’s massive timeshare resale scam. We’re happy to report that last week Kirk was sentenced by a federal judge to a prison sentence of more than 15 years.

Kirk, a Florida-based telemarketer bilked more than 20,000 victims out of more than $30-million dollars in her nationwide timeshare resale scam. Additionally, according to an article published on businessweek.com, "three of Kirk's former employees spun off a similar timeshare scam as Real Timeshare Marketing, which federal prosecutors say made $1.3 million using the same tactics that Kirk employed."

Kirks' scam had all the classic hallmarks: cold calls, promises of buyers and upfront fees. Protect yourself and do your research. Always choose licensed timeshare brokers and check their BBB Accreditation.
