A Florida timeshare company will refund Pennsylvanians who say they were tricked into buying expensive vacations they couldn't take, says the state attorney general's office. Consumers have until June 24 to get the refund -- part of a settlement that ends a lawsuit filed in 2008 against Bluegreen Corp. and its related businesses.

Pennsylvania Attorney General Tom Corbett said in a statement that consumers complained they were "unable to use their timeshare," and that the company "made false promises about when or where consumers could travel and situations where timeshare purchasers did not receive extra services or discounts that were promised during the sales presentation."
