WHAT DO TIMESHARES DO TO CON YOU?











 


   Do you constantly get calls from salesmen offering you all kinds of packages, like 2 nights, 3  days stay somewhere nice with show tickets or attractions for hardly any money, but there is one catch, you have to take a tour and a 90 minute presentation. They guarantee you it will be no longer than 90 minutes, but don't hold your breath. 

  Now you may even have  troubles with this  company who sold you the package, they may say one thing, but when you get the package, they may say another, which happened to me recently. I ended up fighting with the company and asked for a refund. They refused, I told them I would dispute and if I disputed I would then go to their Attorney General, the BBB, and then to all the complaint websites on the computer. They told me to contact the timeshare company I was staying at, since they were selling for them, I did.

  When I talked to the timeshare company, they said they would change everything. but when I got to the resort I was to stay, everything was still a mix up. Being the person I am, I told them they had better honor the packages I had plus the recorded phone telephone calls or I would go back home and dispute.

  Of course they did not want to dispute, especially not the way I go about doing it. They honored their package and even gave me more. The only thing was the presentation. As you know, I told you the salesman told you the presentation would only take 90 minutes, it took 31/2 hours long. The company tried everything to get us to buy more points The more I said no the longer we had to stay until I finally had to say that the time was done and I wasn't going to buy anymore points that I already had.

  Anyway to sum things up, when you get calls offering you great buys, keep in mind that those buys can turn into complete horror. So learn to say no when is needed and when you say yes ,just make sure that package is the way the salesman has told you and you get everything listed in your package. Timeshares have found very neat ways of conning you to get you to their resort. They can be fun but very expensive.
