We're going to go out on a limb here and say that former WPTV Weatherman Rob Lopicola is just an asshole.
Lopicola is the sicko that is serving a 56-month sentence for having sex with underage boys. Now, word comes that while he was not having sex with kids, the former Weather Anchor was ripping people off in a scam.
Lopicola was quietly indicted by a federal grand jury in East St. Louis, Illinois, in connection with scam to bilk timeshare owners out of millions.
Lopicola was officially charged with felony conspiracy to commit wire fraud, is serving his sex-crime time at the mid-level security Everglades Correctional Institution in Miami.
Lopicola allegedly called timeshare owners and falsely claimed to have found potential buyers for their properties. Lopicola then asked each owner for $1,000 to handle the sale.
Federal investigators said Lopicola and the company he worked for, Premier Timeshare Solutions, pocketed the fees then told sellers that their sale didn’t go through.
The feds claim Lopicola called owners without really securing a buyer.
The company allegedly victimized 7,000 would-be sellers in the United States, Canada and The Bahamas for more than $14.5 million.
When the pervert gets out of prison in 2016, he could be facing another 25 years in prison for his role in the scam.
Sounds like he deserves at least that.
