NJ couple accused of operating travel scam


TRENTON, N.J. (AP) — State prosecutors have accused a southern New Jersey couple of pitching phony vacation travel membership packages and collecting fees for discount airfares and cruises that were never delivered.

Authorities say 41-year-old Daryl Turner and 43-year-old Robyn Berstein laundered $700,000 from victims between January 2007 and July 2011 and used the money to buy a luxury home in Marlton.

They're charged with conspiracy, money laundering and theft.

New Jersey Attorney General Jeffrey Chiesa (kee-AY'-sa) says the couple falsely promised large discounts to those who bought vacation packages that typically cost between $2,200 and $6,500.
