Springfield Man Indicted For Fraudulent Timeshare Business

A business owner has been indicted by a federal grand jury.

The U-S Department of Justice says 52-year-old Brian Scroggs of Springfield is charged with three counts of wire fraud and three counts of failure to pay employee taxes.

Scroggs owned several businesses where he made false claims about getting people out of their timeshare contracts.

He collected payments from clients without delivering on the promises he made.

He also employed several salespeople, who he didn’t pay taxes withheld from employees’ paychecks.
