Comment on Westgate Timeshare Orlando – Can I Stop Paying by kenny https://rcivip.com/westgate-timeshare-orlando-can-i-stop-paying/comment-page-1/#comment-382321 Wed, 18 Mar 2020 21:53:59 +0000 http://rcivip.com/?p=1107#comment-382321 I to have purchased a time share back in 2014 used it a couple times and was a terrible experience. Waking me up at 7:00 am trying to con me into upgrading to a 2 bedroom so I told her I was not interested and she just would not shut up so me and my wife rode up the hill looked at the rooms and went back to club house and they started trying to really squeeze me but I got mad made a scene and said look people I don’t want your damn time share no more and mine is for sale and I will sell it for one dollar to anybody in this room then a manager came over to me trying to shut me up but I told him off as well and said take me back to my room and I had recently had knee surgery and they would not take me back up the hill so I had to limp back up that steep hill in smokies and I was fit to be tied. So I have not paid them another dime since 2016 and they have now got pinnacle collections on me and I will not answer them. All I can say is come get me you cant get blood out of a turnip. so we will see what happens I guess. Oh not to mention you cant even get a room for 9 months out usually and you can call back and pretend your just a regular customer and they have plenty of rooms available. Croooooked!!!!

Comment on Tips for Surviving a Timeshare Presentation by Kim https://rcivip.com/tips-for-surviving-a-timeshare-presentation/comment-page-2/#comment-382106 Tue, 17 Mar 2020 21:34:40 +0000 http://rcivip.com/2008/tips-for-surviving-a-timeshare-presentation/#comment-382106 On 3/15/2020 we attended a Wyndham TimeShare Presentation. We were lured by the “FREE Gifts” while attending a Home Show exhibition in Seattle. The “Free Gifts” were: 7-Nite Resort Vacation Certificate + $150 Dining Credit + 30,000 Wyndham Points. Sounds great doesn’t it?? The reality: the Dining Credits are called “Dining Dough” from Restaurant.com We thought we could spend $150 at a fine restaurant—NO!! Dining Dough gives you $25 off of a $50 meal with LOTS of restrictions. Limited number of participating restaurants. So NOT very useful. The “amazing” 7-Nite Resort Vacation Certificate?? Maybe we will be able to use it, but there are MANY restrictions. The ONLY valuable item we received for 3 hours of our time was the 30,000 Wyndham points. We had the opportunity to get $100 in Dining Credit and 45,000 Wyndham points. Unfortunately we chose the almost useless extra Dining Credit. We tried asking several times during the presentation about the Dining Credit—but they refuse to answer any questions about it. (The salesmen KNOW they are almost worthless). Therefore be VERY specific about WHAT Wyndham offers you. The best bet is to ask for MORE Wyndham points.

Comment on Vacation Village At Parkway – A Timeshare Review by Rob https://rcivip.com/vacation-village-at-parkway-timeshare-reviews/comment-page-1/#comment-380979 Thu, 12 Mar 2020 13:28:02 +0000 http://rcivip.com/?p=1324#comment-380979 This just happened to us. We were checking in and we were told that since we were already RCI members that we would have a free breakfast, hear some updates, and be able to ask any questions regarding our rci membership. We paid the $20 deposit for breakfast. We were promised $100 in refund. We went to the place went to breakfast. Right then I knew it was a sales pitch. I told our sales lady that this is not what I signed up for. We looked at the new rooms and went back to be grilled by her and her supervisor. Then we went downstairs to leave and were met with a third person we had to say no to 3 more times. SCAM…. Plus this is the second time we have exchanged and stayed at a Vacation Village, both times there was no option not to waste a half day of our vacation by being pressured. It also seems that if you exchange with RCI I feel we always get the run down old buildings on the property. that is def the case with both of the Vacation Village properties we have stayed at. In Kissimmee and Weston.

I paid the rip off cancellation fee just to cut my loses. I may have kept it just for the RCI points, but after RCI no longer gave points, there was no use because we could never book at the resort. To bad this was once a very nice place with some great people.

https://dockets.justia.com/docket/illinois/ilndce/1:2019cv05499/367812

the attorney is Howard Prossnitz. I talked to him a couple days ago and he said it was dismissed b/c the judge said IL did not have jurisdiction. He said he’s contacting another member of the group in Delaware to see if they could do it. You can still contact Howard, that way he has your information on file and when the case move forward again, you can join.

Since we purchased the second one he’s since passed away. I’m wanting to take his name off the deeds of both timeshares. He has 2 children from a previous marriage but neither of them are interested in it nor have they paid or offered to help on the remaining timeshare nor maintenance fees. I’ve asked timeshare if I could remove his name I have a copy of death certificate. They tell me “ no” because we weren’t married and he had no executor or his stuff because he had nothing. He lived in my home and was on disability last year of his life. My question is is there or what can I do to have his name removed from both deeds which I’m the main account holder on both. It went thru my checking and credit but his name was on deeds

Did you have a balance still or just Maintenance fees? If you had a balance did you stop paying it? And are you in the US? Seems anyone out of the country should and can stop paying with no effect to their life or credit. Curious about the US.

I called my credit card company an they stated it can take up to 15 days for any charges to be reversed and the guy who call is trying to push getting me to send money to another party instead of their firm. Did anything else happen after you refused to write another check?

I totally agree with Toni’s advice. Not all, but a great majority of time share salespersons give high pressured sales pitches to people who simply can’t afford it. They wear them down and guilt them into debt that they cannot afford. Don’t you think if people could afford a 4 day/3 night vacation they would pay for it themselves instead of giving up 90 to 120 minutes of their time? I know my time is a lot more valuable than a time share, but if you offer a nice gift, I’m willing to give up that small amount of my time. The presentations with the high pressure sales pitch will keep people there for longer than they’re actually required to stay. Time share companies are not stupid. They are well aware that they need to offer some type of benefit to lure potential customers. If someone is actually that interested in purchasing a time share, the company would not have to offer free dinners, show tickets, etc… The benefits that attract serious buyers are the benefits of owning the time share and the rest are extras. It’s a cheap way to get a vacation. My husband and I were offered a 4 day/3 night stay at our choice of available Wyndham resorts simply because he had accumulated more membership reward points for a stay at a Wyndham hotel. We intend to take advantage of it and Toni’s advice is spot on! It’s not a matter of respect for the salesperson’s earning potential. It’s a matter of respect the salesperson has for the customer who is not interested in the sale. Instead of pressuring someone who’s not interested, be polite and move on to the next potential customer for your commission. It’s usually the salesperson’s pushy tactics and pretend interest in a customer that costs them their commission.
