Escape To Paradise - South Carolina / renting timeshare

I paid $299.00 in 2007 to list my TimeShare with this company for rent. It has not been rented. It is 2009. My husband and I have decided to sell our TimeShare. I called (888) 201-1676 to ask about why it hasn't been rented, but mainly to see about getting it sold. I spoke with Bill Jefferson, who identified himself as the Head Manager of Escape to Paradise. When I asked him what the owner's name is, he stated that it was John Hofferbert. I asked to speak with him, but was told he was out of the office at that time.

We finally reduced it to $1, 000.00 and sold it privately ourselves for $1, 500.00. The contract stated they would refund the fee if we sold it within 20% of the asking price. When I requested a refund they said that it was 20% of the original asking price. This WAS NOT stated in the contract

Escape To Paradise - California, Newport Beach / Given the run around. Failed to sell Timeshare

As of 03/18/09 it has been a year and 1/2 since we had our time share listed with these scam artists. Phone call after phone call is either not responded to or we are told some one will call back, no one ever does. We have spoken with one of the general managers who was very rude and when we request to speak to his supervisor we were told "your not getting past me". We totally got caught in a scam. Their Better Business Bureau score is an F.
