An associate of former Seminole County Tax Collector Joel Greenberg was in court on Monday, where he was sentenced to nine years in federal prison after pleading guilty to a long list of fraud charges. 46 year old Keith Ingersoll was also ordered by the judge, to pay nearly $13 million in restitution to an elderly real estate investor he defrauded. That’s in additioin to the $48,000 that Ingersoll must reimburse to the Seminole County government. Ingersoll admitted that back in 2017, while he was a tax collector, he defrauded Seminole County taxpayers by taking part in a real estate scheme involving Greenberg’s office. Ingersoll and others arranged for a “straw purchaser” to buy a building in Winter Springs for $680,000 that Greenberg wanted to use as a branch office. Then, just hours later, that straw purchaser sold the building to the Seminole County Tax Collector’s Office for an inflated price of $942,000. The $262,000 in profit from the real estate transaction was divided among Ingersoll and the others. Ingersoll also admitted to defrauding an 80-year-old real estate investor out of $12.7 million.
