INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — The Indiana attorney general’s office is suing a Chicago-based travel company that allegedly took more than $6,000 from would-be travelers for a trip that never happened.
The state filed the lawsuit against Ron-Mar Travel in Marion County on Thursday. Customers paid the company for a bus tour through New York, Washington, D.C., and Canada in August 2013. When the trip was cancelled, the state says Ron-Mar promised refunds that never came.
The attorney general’s office says Ron-Mar violated Indiana’s Senior Consumers Protection Act because three of the customers were over 60. Under the law, violators must pay senior victims three times the amount paid.
A phone call to the company’s listed office number rang unanswered. The Ron-Mar website says the company has closed.
