Scott L. Lemons and Kevin V. Robinson were indicted on January 3, 2013, for their roles in an alleged scheme to defraud mortgage lenders concerning the sale of condominiums in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina.
According to the Indictment, Lemons and Robinson were real estate investors. Lemons owned Gold Coast Resorts, S&L Funding, and East Coast Resorts, and Robinson owned CSPR Investments, LLC. The companies were engaged in real estate speculation and investment in a condominium property known as Ashley Park, Myrtle Beach, South Carolina.
