(KSL News) A father and son sentenced for scamming investors out of nearly $1 million will now pay for their crimes.
A Weber County judge ordered Scott and Zacharia Rhoads to pay back $700,000 to their victims or face permanent probation.
The pair pleaded guilty to running a fraudulent used car business from 2003 to 2005. Investors gave money and received a promissory note with the VIN of the car supposedly bought with their money. But the Rhoads were really pocketing the cash and using the same VIN with different investors.
