NEW YORK (AP) - New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman is announcing a settlement with a Staten Island travel agency accused of bilking customers and stranding them in the Balkans.

Schneiderman announced the settlement Saturday with Cuka Tours and it owners, Qerem and Suzana Cukoviq.

He says Cuka Tours preyed on customers who were seeking to visit family in Albania, Macedonia, Kosovo and Montenegro.

Schneiderman says the customers paid Cuka for round-trip tickets but the agency paid only for one-way tickets, leaving customers stranded and unable to return home.

He said that in some instances Cuka Tours failed to pay for any tickets at all.

The agency and its owners were ordered to pay $25,000 in restitution and civil penalties.

No phone number for Qerem and Suzana Cukoviq was listed.
