Bluegreen Resorts / fraudulent business practices
Greg Thomas, Marketing Director, for the Vacation Package Sales Department entirely misrepresented the profitability of entering an agreement with Bluegreen to sell their vacation package. Bluegreen was supposed to get qualified tours for their Fountains Resorts Sales Department and we were supposed to be able to make a profit on the sale of the vacation package. Mr. Thomas made promises about the potenial earnings that were false, more directly he lied about the quality of the phone leads that Bluegreen provided as a client base for contact to sell the package to. The "first quality" leads, that Bluegreen charged $3/lead were supposed to be 48-72 hours old. The leads were forms filled out by the general public removing them (the client) from the do not call list and providing contact information in order to get them on the phone to prospectively sell the package to. What Greg Thomas actually provided were leads that were any where from 6 months to two years old (example: "fortst quality" leads purchased in November were from "Spring Home Shows--does Greg Thomas understand calendars or seasons?). When confronted with this misrepresentation of facts Greg Thomas acted as if he did not know that the "first quality" leads Bluegreen was charging top dollar for were garbage. To date he still maintains the farce that he sold "first quality" leads when they were nothing of the sort. I strongly urge that noone enter into a business deal with Bluegreen, especially not when Greg Thomas is involved in the deal. I have come to believe that nothing that Bluegreen promises can be relied upon. This should be a warning for consumers as well--if Bluegreen (via Greg Thomas) would lie to us (their business associate) then they would definitely lie to the unsuspecting timeshare client, I have heard horror stories from Bluegreen owners that were lured into purchasing into Bluegreen's point system of Vacation Ownership only to find out that they were overcharged initially as well as overcharged for the ongoing maintnenance fees the client forks up annualy--sometimes for unusable amounts of points that could never be used for vacationing as the "suspect" salespeople at the various Blugreen Resort destinations claim. After some research not only did I find that Bluegreen's BBB rating was an "F", but they were under litigation in various states for misrepresentations to consumers across the board. DO NOT PURCHASE ANYTHING FROM THIS COMPANY--THEY CONDONE DISHONEST AT ALL LEVELS OF THEIR SALES ORGANIZATION WHETHER A FELLOW BUSINESSPERSON OR VACATIONER STAY AWAY FROM BLUEGREEN--GREG THOMAS LIES TO PEOPLE WITHOUT REGARTD FOR ANYONE'S SAFETY OR FINANCIAL WELL BEING, I AM CERTAIN THAT THE REST OF THE ORGANIZATION (based on my research) IS MORE OF THE SAME.
