IU students who paid for Vegas trip get bitter surpriseOctober 18, 2018
By The Associated Press
BLOOMINGTON — Police say about 300 Indiana University students who flew to Las Vegas for a pre-paid trip arrived to discover that no arrangements had been made for them.
Detective Sgt. Dana Cole with Bloomington police says the students paid for their own flights, but arrived last week at a Las Vegas hotel and learned that no reservations had been made for them.
Cole says the students couldn’t reach the man they’d paid about $60,000 for hotel reservations and group activities for their Oct. 4-7 fall break trip.
He tells The Herald-Times that a detective eventually spoke to the man, who promised to repay the students’ money and blamed the oversight on a family emergency.
Cole says he doesn’t know what the students did after their Las Vegas plans fell through.
