(KTVI) - There's a warning from the St. Louis Better Business Bureau about the failure of a St. Louis business to refund payments after softball camps were cancelled from Texas to California.

At a public park in St. Charles County, no one will be playing softball Thursday night and that's the story for many high school softball players from Texas, to Illinois, to Oklahoma who had counted on working with college coaches at camps around the nation.

The organizer, Andrew Heifner, who identifies himself as a softball coach, operated under the name Legit Softball LLC.  But parents are questioning how legitimate he really is.

The camps in June were cancelled and families are still waiting for refunds.  Heifner's website promises a real chance for girls to prepare for college level softball.  That opportunity could mean scholarships for young women, but Heifner tells the Better Business Bureau the camps turned out to be a bad business deal.

His last address was at a nice apartment complex in Chesterfield, but when Betsey Bruce knocked on the address where families sent their camp payments, it turned out that he no longer been there.

The BBB has talked to Heifner.
