Known for offering advice on how to manage one’s debt, the finance guru and radio host Dave Ramsey is being sued for $150 million by former listeners. Plaintiffs in this class action allege being defrauded by Ramsey’s endorsement of Timeshare Exit Team, who often paid Ramsey to promote their group to his listeners. Clients claim they were charged upwards of $72,000 by Timeshare Exit Company for their services, with the promise of receiving their money back. Clients did not receive their money back as promised and were unaware of Ramsey’s endorsement.
Along with Ramsey and Timeshare Exit Team, Happy Hour Media Group (a marketing firm) is accused of violating the Washington Consumer Protection Act by defrauding the plaintiffs in this case and scamming them out of millions of dollars.
