LOCAL MOTEL TO PAY BACK FOR “SANDY” RIPOFFS

A motel in Atlantic County has agreed to pay $65,000 in restitution after admitting to price-gouging during Hurricane Sandy.  The owners of the Econolodge in Egg Harbor Township more than doubled their rates in the days following Sandy to take advantage of a high demand for motel rooms.  About $25,000 will go towards restitution of customers who were ripped off, while other money will be allocated towards attorneys’ fees, and other related costs.
