Allegations have been brought up by some of its members that the Bonita Bay group may have been using a Ponzi scheme with the membership fees and the Attorney General’s Office is now involved in an investigation. The allegations have been made because members believe that the company was only able to pay out refunds when new members were joining due to a Ponzi scheme after they suspended the refund policy last November. Several members have stopped paying dues, and the Twin Eagles club has been closed altogether. The Bonita Bay group has always had one of the best policies by offering a 30 day refund upon resignation from one of their clubs. Their company owns Verandah, Shadow Wood, Twin Eagles, Mediterra, and Bonita Bay.
