Charges Filed in Motorhome Timeshare Scheme
A Calgary woman is facing more than 60 charges in connection to a motorhome timeshare scheme that allegedly bilked clients out of more than $100,000.
CTV News reported that an investigation was launched into an apparent Ponzi scheme following a tip through Crime Stoppers. Charges were filed against Pamela Vanberg and her businesses, Calgary Motorhome Inc. and Canada Motorhome Inc.
Investigators say that between 2009 and 2012, several clients signed contracts with Vanberg and her businesses to buy timeshare-style use of a motorhome. The clients paid membership fees ranging from $5,000 to $45,000 and allegedly did not receive access to the motorhome and did not receive refunds as promised.
Vanberg also operated companies with the following names that have not been charged: Calgary Motorhome Club, Canada Motorhome Club, AB Luxury RV Inc., AB RV, and RV Owner Group.
