Royal Holiday Scam at Wyndham Nassau Resort in New Providence Is Ruining Our Finances!
I was scammed--deceived, defrauded and duped--at the Wyndham Nassau Resort in New Providence, Nassau, in March 2011. I want to express my extreme frustration with Royal Holiday Club's predatory sales practices. Since I was hoodwinked into signing a contract with this unethical company, I have been obliged to pay $220 per month and an annual fee in excess of $1,000. In exchange I have received NO net benefits--I would have saved thousands and thousands of dollars by making travel arrangements myself for the one resort trip I did manage to work out with Royal Holiday Club. Including the inittial credit card payment of $15,000, over the past two years I have been obliged to pay them a total of $20,300.
We bought into Westgate in 2006 we are not satisfied to say the least. we traded it to a vacation travel club in 2009 we still have not got this property out of our name they have billed us for two years we bought it bi-anually we signed all the necessary papers we requested the esstoppell letter or first right of refusal we even had the vacation travel club whom we traded with to contact them we have got nothing done.
Absolutely - Representatives claim to be looking out for your best interests. After being timeshare owners for 20 years, we were deceived in a recent transaction. The representative made a clear sales pitch for Presidential Reserve assuring us that our payment would only increase $200...well when we received our first statement - $1100 increase. Contacted Wyndham - were told it was our word against his.
This is a typical timeshare scam. The company called me to purchase my timeshare. After saying that I would NOT have to pay any money upfront, we signed a sales agreement - then they wanted me to pay for Mexican taxes upfront ($2256) or they threatened me to charge 12% of the purchase price as a cancellation fee. they said the money is in a non reimbursable account and the amount transferred cannot be changed to the full purchase price minus the taxes.
