Timeshare Exit Companies Allegedly Defrauded Customers with Hefty Fees and Empty Promises

  • Missouri AG Eric Schmitt sued Brian Scroggs and four timeshare exit companies under his control, Vacation Consulting Services LLC, VCS Communications, LLC, The Transfer Group, LLC, and Real Travel L.L.C. (collectively “Scroggs”), for allegedly charging fees and not providing promised timeshare-exit services in violation of Missouri’s Merchandising Practices Act.
  • The complaint alleges that Scroggs solicited large sums of money from customers by falsely promising to either transfer or terminate timeshare interests, or buy out the interests if the transfer or termination did not occur within a year. Scroggs also allegedly promised to cover clients’ timeshare maintenance fees but failed to do so, thereby putting many clients in arrears with their timeshare operators.
  • The complaint seeks declaratory and injunctive relief, restitution, civil penalties, and attorneys’ fees and costs.
