If you want a frightening experience, go to the sales presentation of Vacation Village at Parkway in Kissimmee, Florida.
I was promised that since I was an owner at Vacation Village that I did not need to hear the sales pitch, but instead, I was strong armed with threatening talk about my deeded week timeshare. The sales person I spoke with stated that I could no longer trade the timeshare I owned at Vacation Village, and that I had to go on my exact week at my home resort no exception. He said I had to sign this paper stating that understood this, and that I was not willing to change to points.
At this time he also told me about the RCI law suit, and yet I was never notified. I stated that it is the responsibility of the resorts that sold weeks to notify their owners about the lawsuit, and that they failed to protect their owners in this case, and therefore, I would consult with my attorney over what my rights are. He immediately started back peddling and said, “Well, you just don’t have as much option as points.” He was going for a hard sell all the way.
I then went to where I was meant to fill out the survey and was attacked again by the same salesman. When I stated I don’t care what he has to say, I am not interested and stop harassing me, he got up and left to get the paperwork for my $20 refund. He stated that I was getting the discounted tickets for listening to the presentation. At that point I told just give me my refund, and that nothing was worth what I was going through.
The initial sales person then left, and the financial person came and started going over my ownership. I told him that I am well aware of my financial situation and did not need his advice, and got angry again. I felt that I was being mentally attacked by these people and wanted to leave. I got up when the next attacker called a “manager” came up and started harassing me. What is this!!
I want everyone to know how they treat single senior women. They need to be reported to the police, and I may do that. Finally, the first salesperson returned and said he was taking me down to get my refund and was giving me $100, well this turned out to be a lie. He only gave me $80 and my $20 deposit back.
I could not eat the lunch that had been offered because of the sale attack that stated the minute we got into the car. The lunch was a frightening experience. Last, but not least, the final attacker sat down with me after the first salesperson left and stated he reports all incidents back to the board. Doubt that this is true as he was not interested in what had happened. When he learned I had only been there 2 hours he thought that was good.
When being attacked at a place that you already own a resort timeshare it shows just how bad and desperate these people are. Stay away. Do not buy. Bugs in units, unit falling apart, and it was the newest building. Stay away from Vacation Village at Parkway.
