Man Scams Top Resort

Tuesday, August 29, 2006

A Pennsylvania man is accused of living it up at West Virginia's Greenbrier resort and leaving a bill totaling more than ten-thousand dollars.

West Virginia State Police have issued an arrest warrant charging 32-year-old Kyle Noble Quandel, of Pottsville, Pennsylvania, with obtaining goods under false pretenses.

Police allege that Quandel and a guest, Jason Wesnoski, age and address unknown, spent seven days at the resort in White Sulphur Springs in May.

A criminal complaint filed by Trooper J-S Syner says the bill included more than four-thousand dollars for dinner, more than one-thousand dollars for The Greenbrier Spa/Salon, and 178 dollars for the resort's Falconry Academy.

The complaint says when Quandel attempted to pay his credit card was declined. The complaint says Wesnoski then allegedly paid with another credit card.

The Greenbrier's head of security, Jim Rohan, told police Wesnoski's grandmother contacted him, said the credit card was hers and stopped payment of the bill. Rohan said Quandel was contacted by e-mail and denied owing any money because his credit card was not used.
