Fraud Alert


Hello Internet:


I am Peter Aaron.  I am not the only 'Peter Aaron,' but I am, among other things the Peter Aaron who is a licensed Real Estate Broker in New York, NY.  My License Number is 10351205571.


I am, apparently, among the first brokers listed (alphabetically) on various public lists of licensed New York real estate brokers.  Criminals, it seems, are pretty lazy, and steal identities from the top of the list.  Consequently, there are at least two criminals using my name and broker license number to perpetrate scams and steal people's money. 


The three major instances that I’ve heard about (so far) have each involved the sale of interests in “Lifestyle Holidays Vacation Club” in Puerto Plata, Dominican Republic.  There is also someone who posts rental apartments on and tries to scam people out of deposits - please be wary!


Please do not fall for any unsolicited purchase or sales offer – from anyone, really – but especially from ‘Peter Aaron.’  My advice: for any real estate transaction, always get your own real estate lawyer.  If you have been scammed, please provide all the information to law enforcement ASAP.


Insofar as I do, actually, work in real estate myself, there are a number of ways to verify that I am the ‘real’ Peter Aaron.  Meet me in person.  Ask to see some ID.  Contact me through this web page.


So: fake ‘Peter Aaron’ – I hope you will soon be in prison.  Anyone approached for any sort of real estate related transaction by ‘Peter Aaron’ – please be careful in verifying that it is, in fact, ME.  Thank you!







Regarding the “Lifestyle Holidays Vacation Club” frauds, I have opened a complaint with the Federal Trade Commission.  The complaint reference number is 88432499.  If you have been the victim of this scam, or have even been contacted by these people, please contact the FTC at 877-382-4357 or by mail :
