Palm Beach Gardens woman accused of "most despicable scam in the world"

PALM BEACH GARDENS, FL (WFLX) - A Palm Beach Gardens woman, who may have been apart as what's being called the "most despicable scam in the world", could be heading to jail for up to 25 years.

Federal authorities say Kristina Cameron and her business partner, who's already been sentenced to eight years, paid recovering addicts to call people who owned time shares.

According to our partners at the "Palm Beach Post", the telemarketers pretended to want to buy the property; however, the current owner had to first come up with a closing fee -- usually $1,000.

In all, it's believed they stole about $14 million. Cameron turned herself in this week.
