Reviews of the timeshare industry by the owners...
In May 2006, I received a fax from this compaany in Florida telling me abour all vacations I can take, 3 days in Daytona Beach, a cruise to the Bahamas. I contacted them and I was told that this was a great vacation and all that. I sent checks for different things.
I had to give the amount of my yearly salary as well as my husband. Well in August of 2006 we went down there. The very next day this woman came over and stated asking us all sorts of questions about when we take vacatin and how ofent we take vacations and began telling us how much money we would pay if we just went on vacations on our own. She told us we needed to come to the office the next day. When we said we want time to thing about buying a timeshare, she went and got her boss and he came out and said, this is not FREE, it cost money to bring you down here. They pressure my husband and me into buying this timeshare. I had just been informed that I was very sick and my defense was very very low. They
knew that we could not go on vacation the following year because it was already past the time in whcih we would have needed to book our week. When I called to book our week in February of 2007, a man answered and told me you don't have a week to chose, you have already missed you week. He told me I would have to wait until 2008. When I called in 2008 I book a week in Argentina for June of 2008. Calypso Cay Vaction Villas cancelled my week and told me again I did not have a week to book or exchange. So happended when I had called and booked my week to go to Argentina, I had gotten the name of the person that I had spoken to. When I called back, they changed their tune about my week. However, I had to pay a lot of fees to be able to go away.
I' am hoping that we can all get togother and hopefully have our STATES filed a CLASS ACTION LAW SUIT FOR ALL OF US THAT HAVE BEEN EXPLOITED AND RIPOFF AND FINALY STOP THESE COMPANIES. If after reading this article and you feel like I do, please respond.
