     | June 25,2014

    MONTPELIER ó The Vermont Attorney Generalís office is warning people about a promotional flyer being mailed to consumers in the northeastern part of the state that offers free airline tickets and hotel accommodations.

    The attorney general says the advertisement is intended to lure people into a sales promotion that violates the Vermont Consumer Protection Rule on Bait Advertising.

    Consumers who contact the number on the flyer are told they must attend a seminar to obtain vouchers for free air fares.

    The seminars are led by high pressure sales teams in area hotel conference rooms where people are persuaded to buy a membership in a discount travel club, but the memberships do not provide what was promised.

    Last year, the attorney generalís office shut down a number of such operations.
