PIERRE, S.D. (AP) - South Dakota Attorney General Marty Jackley says two South Carolina women have pleaded guilty to misdemeanor charges in an alleged travel scam.
Thirty-eight-year-old Angie Lee-Barnes, of Daniel Island, S.C., and 50-year-old Teresa Poston Duffee, of Georgetown, S.C., pleaded guilty to failure to inform a buyer of a right to cancel.
Jackley says the charges stemmed from sales presentations made at a Sioux Falls hotel in December.
The attorney general says 1st Choice Marketing offered vouchers promising tickets from a nonexistent airline. He says documents said they were not a timeshare or land sales offer, but people who called the listed number were told they had to attend a meeting to redeem the travel voucher.
Jackley says people who signed up will be notified they can cancel and get a refund.
