Frank and Christi accepted the free three night vacation they were offered by a vacation resort company. All they had to do in return was sit through a simple two hour presentation.
Below is a written account of how Frank and Christi S. were deceived into purchasing a timeshare and their experience with the timeshare salesmen. Names of people have been changed and/or redacted for privacy reasons.
Frank and Christi attended their first timeshare sales presentation when they were offered a free vacation, but unfortunately, most of the first day of that free vacation was spent in a pressure-filled presentation that lasted nearly six hours. They were told during the presentation that a timeshare was a great option for their growing family’s future because it is a secure, guaranteed vacation option.The couple was also told that it would be a great option for decades to come for their children as well. After the nearly six hours they spent in the meeting declining several times with multiple salespeople, Frank and Christi succumbed to the pressure because they wanted to get out of there and enjoy time with their children on the free vacation.
“At the first meeting, we were given a certificate for a free cruise for our family. We weren’t able to use it, though, because it was only for certain dates and based on ship availability.”
The couple later tried to reserve a vacation for their family, but they had trouble finding availability with the timeshare. They scheduled an owner’s review meeting with the timeshare company, where they faced even more intense sales pressure and blatant lies from the timeshare sales teams.
“At the second meeting we were told that we were originally sold a package that was too small, and that’s why we had trouble finding reservations for our family. Five hours later, we bought into what we were told was the best package for our family. On top of this purchase, they gave us two 7 day vacation packages and airplane tickets to finally get us to buy again.”
Frank and Christi soon found out that this was not the case at all. They had trouble booking yet again, and they still did not have the amount of points that they needed for their vacation. The couple soon realized that they were losing thousands of dollars each year to a timeshare they could never actually use! On top of that, they could never rent out the unit to others (prior to what they’d been told in the sales meeting) in order to offset the costs like they’d originally planned for their unit.
