A major win for consumers came this week.
Missouri Attorney General Andrew Bailey’s office obtained a consent judgment against a group of Springfield timeshare cancellation businesses and their owner Brian Scroggs for failure to let consumers out of their timeshare agreements.
Scroggs owned Vacation Consulting Services, which offered timeshare exit services across the country.
Bailey, in a statement, says this consent judgment is a testament to the work that the Consumer Protection Unit puts in everyday to protect Missourians.
The case was settled for $800,000, which included $700,000 for consumers, $50,000 in civil penalties, and $50,000 to a fund that helps the state pursue other future actions on behalf of defrauded consumers.
