In a move to protect consumers from fraudulent timeshare Exit Companies, the Missouri Attorney General Andrew Bailey has initiated legal proceedings against a Branson-based company and its two owners. The company in question, RSI, LLC, sometimes operating under the name Relief Solutions International, is facing allegations of violating the Missouri Merchandising Practices Act. This legal action follows complaints from consumers across the United States who claim they were promised relief from timeshare obligations in exchange for substantial fees but received no such results. In this blog post, we’ll delve into the details of this case and explore the implications for timeshare owners.
RSI, LLC is accused of charging over $800,000 to 114 consumers with promises to relieve them of their timeshare obligations, including maintenance fees and other associated costs. These promises were made in writing but allegedly went unfulfilled, leading to widespread dissatisfaction and financial harm among the affected consumers.
The Missouri Attorney General contends that RSI, LLC’s actions violate the Missouri Merchandising Practices Act. This law is designed to protect consumers from deceptive and unfair business practices. In this case, it’s alleged that the company made false promises and charged exorbitant fees, which is a clear violation of consumer protection laws.
Attorney General Andrew Bailey is taking strong measures to address this issue and protect consumers’ rights. He is seeking the following remedies through legal action:
- Injunctive Relief: To prevent RSI, LLC, and its owners from continuing these alleged deceptive practices.
- Full Restitution: Ensuring that all affected consumers receive compensation for the fees they paid and the promised services they did not receive.
- Civil Penalties: Imposing fines on the defendants for each violation of consumer protection laws.
In response to this legal action, Attorney General Bailey emphasized his commitment to upholding the rule of law and protecting consumers from fraudulent companies. He stated, “I will always fight for the rule of law, which includes holding fraudulent companies accountable for preying on Missourians. We will use every tool at our disposal to obtain justice for victims of consumer fraud.”
