A British timeshare crook has been sentenced in Spain for fleecing holidaymakers in a £9million fraud.
Costa del Sol-based Toni Muldoon, 64, was one of ten defendants given suspended sentences of up to two years by a judge in Malaga on condition they repay £438,000 in two years.
Muldoon’s wife Kim and six other members of the gang missed the hearing and warrants have been issued for their arrest. She is believed to be in Turkey.
Muldoon was among six defendants who pleaded guilty to fraud.
The other four admitted charges of illicit association.
The fraud was run from the resort of Fuengirola from 2001 to 2006.
Britons seeking to offload overpriced timeshares were told a buyer was interested and offered an good rate by telesales staff from companies including Screenit and Platinum Properties.
