Sun Country Travel also falsely claimed that its activities were approved by the state attorney general's office and Better Business Bureau. The verdict includes $15.2 million in civil penalties and $49 million in restitution. Sun Country Travel sold about 6,000 memberships at a cost of $4,000 each, the AP reported.
