A Branson company that promised free airline tickets with no strings attached has to pay $30,000 to Johnson County, Kansas residents for attaching strings.Surrey Vacation Resorts also will pay a $10,000 civil penalty and foot the $7,500 bill for the cost of the investigation. The company made the mistake of placing a call to the assistant district attorney in charge of consumer fraud who discovered consumers had to book five-to-10 day stays at hotels to get their “free” airline tickets.
