An Orlando man arrested for timeshare fraud now faces additional charges, Agriculture Commissioner Adam Putnam announced Thursday.
Jason Eugene Allan Davis and his brother, Gregory Benjamin Davis, ran American Timeshare Associates and Consumer Advocate Solution Headquarters. Authorities say the brothers used their business to scheme timeshare owners out of money by claiming they had found interested buyers for their properties.
Gregory was arrested in early September and Jason was arrested shortly after on charges of defrauding consumers out of more than $350,000. According to the new state charges, Jason Davis schemed one individual out of more than $304,000.
According to the investigation, Jason Davis told the victim that he was entitled to substantial monetary settlement as part of a lawsuit against timeshare resale businesses and requested legal fees to release the disbursement of funds from the bogus lawsuit. After the victim provided the funds, Davis cut off communications
Jason Davis is being held in Orange County Jail without bond, facing a charge of organized scheme to defraud in the first degree, a felony that carries a prison sentence of up to 30 years. He is also charged with first-degree grand theft and commercial telephone solicitation without a license, which carries 30-year and 5-year sentences, respectively.
