S. Oregon vineyard tied to subscription fraud suit for sale

JACKSONVILLE, Ore. (AP) - A southern Oregon vineyard that is tied to a nationwide subscription fraud lawsuit is up for sale.

The Mail Tribune reports (http://bit.ly/2pDy0ra ) Bellinger Lane Vineyard Estate hit the market last week for $13 million.

The property's former trustee, Jeffrey Hoyal, is facing a suit from the Federal Trade Commission accusing him of misleading business practices.

The suit shows Hoyal, about 10 other people and numerous businesses had been involved in selling newspaper and magazine subscriptions at inflated prices.

The defendants are accused of targeting subscribers of the Wall Street Journal and National Geographic, among other publications.

The vineyard's deed was signed over to new trustee David Hoyal in October. Jackson County records show the property is owned by Crater Lake Trust.
