I was introduced to Brent Mullins by his brother whom I met on a flight from California to Key West.  I used Mr. Mullins / Points Beyond to book a trip to Asia that went off without a hitch, however when I subsiquently booked a trip to Central America, I learned Brenton Neil Mullins was a convicted felon, having stolen $1.3million worth of American Airlines travel points from unsuspecting consumers.

 Data from Brent Mullins appeal

 Three travel agents were convicted by a jury of mail and wire fraud arising out of their conspiracy to defraud an airline by electronically transferring frequent flyer miles to fictitious accounts and then cashing in those accounts for free airline tickets.

 Brent Mullins and his co-conspirators created some 850 fictitious AAdvantage accounts, 726 of which had accumulated a total of more than 61 million frequent flyer miles, with addresses traced to 29 mail drops and resulting in Brent Mullins and his co-conspirators obtaining for resale 546 free airline tickets. The loss to American was subsequently valued at more than $1.3 million.

 A federal grand jury handed down a 22-count indictment charging Brent Mullins and his co-conspirators with conspiracy, mail fraud, use of fictitious names in furtherance of a scheme to defraud, and wire fraud. Brent Mullins was found guilty of 10 counts. All three involved served jail time and paid large fines.

 I realised something was amiss when Mr. Mullins kept asking me to open a Delta Air Miles account to which I refused.  He also seemed hesitant to use American Express, insisting a new credit card attached to air miles was the way to travel.

 A background investigation revealed that Brent Mullins, Brenton Neil Mullins & Points Beyond Travel were not registered entities with the State of California as required by law; verified by the agency below:
