DOJ Plans Meeting On Carol’s Tours

10/17/11 – The State Attorney Generals Office has announced that a meeting will be held at the end of the month on the investigation into fraud complaints surrounding the closure of a defunct Beaver Dam travel agency. Carol’s Tours closed its doors in January of 2008. In the months that followed, over 100 complaints were reported from customers who deposited money for trips they claim were never fulfilled. The meeting is for those who may have suffered loss due to the closing of Carol’s Tours and allows prosecutors a chance to gather evidence and information that may be relevant to the investigation. It’s also an opportunity to meet with Assistant Attorney General Richard Dufour, who will outline the status of the investigation and answer questions about the case. Even if you have not yet reported a loss suffered as a result of the Carol’s Tours closing, Dufour says you can still report your loss to investigators. Victims will have the opportunity to provide input as it relates to charging decisions and ultimate disposition on the case. Also at the meeting: special agents with the Department of Justice Division of Criminal Investigation, a victim services specialist with the Wisconsin Department of Justice Office of Crime Victim Services and local investigators. The Department of Justice meeting on Carol’s Tours is scheduled for Monday, October 31 at 7pm and will be held in the Beaver Dam Middle School Auditorium.
