The same article also refers to a settlement with Timeshare Relief and the Vermont Attorney General where the "Pay Us to Take Your Timeshare" company reportedly used deceptive trade practices to entice timeshare owners residing in the state of Vermont to attend high pressure presentations under the assumption that they would be given an offer for their unwanted timeshares. Instead, they were charged thousands of dollars to be "relieved" of their timeshare burdens and made to believe that they would be eligible for a tax deduction if they paid the company. The reported settlement was in excess of $140,000.
