In Charleston there is one official visitor center and several other less-official ones that, while being willing to dispense visitor info, are also looking to sell you something a bit more, like a timeshare. 

Well the City of Charleston isn't too happy when they get calls from some tourists who feel they've been trapped by deceptive marketing. 

The Post and Courier got ahold of the story and has a nice breakdown of what's at play; take a read here.
