Arnold Donszelmann has been sentenced to serve seven years in prison and has been ordered to repay over two million dollars in restitution for scamming dozens of customers who had believed they were investing in their future. Donszelmann was found guilty of thirty-one counts of fraud, causing, “a great deal of grief for a great many people,” according to Court of Queen’s Bench Justice Terry Clackson.

From his local business, Leisure RV Rentals Ltd., Millet, Alberta, he would convince investors, many of whom were seniors, to purchase recreational vehicles which were added to his rental fleet. The investor was to pay down his loan from monthly income gained from the rental of the units. It was brought to light that in some cases, he did not even own the title to the recreational vehicles he was selling.

It is an unfortunate thing that there are individuals who feel they have the right to tear down other people’s dreams in order to steal one of their own. For Donszelmann, one can only pray he takes the next seven years of his life to consider the damage he has done to many people’s futures and lives.
