Reviews of the timeshare industry by the owners...
We went to Wyndham Timeshare for Than ksgiving as we have a timeshare there but we were not VIP member. So they informed us we had to go to a meeting to upgrade our membership. This is a boiler room. There were three representatives. Really apply the pressure.
I signed a contract with Coastal Vacation to sell 2 time shares in Mexico and then have been working with Escrow Holdings to close on the properties. They charged me for transfer fees, then for lawyer fees, then for insurance to cover wiring the money to my bank. Now the phone no. isn't working and of course I have no money to show for my efforts. Scammed.
Embarassing to admit but i was a victim of a timeshare scam. I have a timeshare property and i've been wanting to either sell or rent it out. So when an agent from professional resort advertising called me and told me all guarantees that they saw my available weeks and that they have companies who are already lined up to rent it (Coke and AT&T), i fell for it.
They pressured us to buy a timeshare. We were scammed big style. We can´t get rid of our timeshare now. I don´t want anyone to be a victim. Westgate is the worse.
