In an intriguing tale that could only happen in the world of golf, a Scottsdale man has landed himself a seven-year stint in the big house. But this isn’t your average tale of crime and punishment. Oh no, this story involves a scam, a golf course, and a hefty sum of money!

The Bogeyman of Scottsdale’s Golf Scene

Imagine this: You’re passionate about golf, you’re looking for a fantastic investment opportunity, and then you stumble upon an offer that seems too good to be true.

That’s precisely what happened to some unfortunate investors who believed they were investing in a lucrative golf course deal. Little did they know, they were dealing with Scottsdale’s very own bogeyman.

A Shot in the Dark Turns into a Nightmare

Our golf-obsessed scammer was ordered to pay a staggering $377,000 in restitution and was handed a seven-year sentence behind bars. Now, that’s what you call an expensive round of golf!

It seems like his scheme to trick investors into believing they were on the fast track to a golfing fortune took a severe slice into the rough.

But this wasn’t Alexander’s first brush with the law. In 2006, he pleaded guilty to charges related to a Ponzi scheme and was sentenced to eight years in federal prison. Seems like our fairway fraudster has a knack for landing in the rough!

From the Green to the Big House

So, as we marvel at this peculiar tale from the golfing world, let’s remember that not all that glitters is gold—or in this case, lush green fairways. While the allure of a quick buck can be enticing, it’s always wise to do your due diligence before diving headfirst into a seemingly profitable venture.

In the end, our Scottsdale scammer learned the hard way that cheating doesn’t pay off—on or off the golf course. And as for the investors, they learned an equally important lesson: always keep an eye on the ball, especially when it comes to your hard-earned cash.
