Consolidated Resorts / Fraud and cheating

1 United States Review updated:
Contact information:

In November 2008 me and my wife while in vegas on vacation went to a presentation to get tickets to a show. We were told the presentation would take 2 hours and they kept us there for 4.5 hours. We refused over and over until they made us what we thought was a wonderful deal. The sales re threw in free trips to Hawaii and Dubai and we were witnessing new owners popping balloons and winning trips.

It was very entertaining to the concept of being an owner. We agreed to the offer and also were invited up to pop balloons and spin a wheel. We won a trip to Egypt and the bonus package giving us 6 free trips in total. That would excite anyone. After more of our time in a private office we were presented with endless promises that we couldn't lose out because the property could be sold back to Consolidated Resorts. They took us on a tour of the place and gave us plenty of free items. Even gave us a ride to our hotel because our ride couldn't wait any longer.

We received our package in the mail and I quickly noticed the pre printed package of trips that we were lied to about that gets mailed to everyone. And the trick is nothing is free like promised. We brought into this scam because the offering of the trips alone benefited more than the actual timeshare offer. I called the 800 number to be told by the costumer service person ' I have a meeting to attend so you'll have to call back' so I gave her my number to return a call and it never happened.

You can't get in touch with anyone to discuss the issues.

Once we called in to plan our yearly trip to Myrtle beach we were told by the intervals rep that we had to pay them a transfer fee. (that we already paid to CR) and it would cost us $534 for a week I almost lost my mind. I could book that easily on my own without their help.

I have canceled the credit card they have on record to stop payment and I'm seeking out counsel to get out of this scam. it's all lies!

    In March 2007 my husband and I fell victim to Tahiti Village and their deceptive practices. While on vacation in 2007 my husband and I were approached and offered free show tickets if we attended a 90 minute presentation we had to give the salesman a $100 deposit in order to ensure that we would attend and we would get our money and tickets at the end of the presentation. Boy that's $100 I wish I would have just let go. So the next morning we went to a presentation with about 20 other couples via a tour bus.

    After sitting through the presentation we were given a tour of the facility by our personal sales associate then the high pressure began we were told about the money we would save by buying a timeshare. We were given 12 bonus vacations a year that we were told we could sell for a huge profit enough to make our mortgage payments and more. We bought the Bora Bora we put $2600/down and our payments are $417/month our interest rate is 14.9% which we weren't thrilled about but they assure us we could easily refinance at a better rate, well that couldn't be further from the truth. Our maintenance fees are about $500/year. As an additional gift we popped a balloon which revealed an all inclusive vacation to Rio De Jenero and given a $500 sun dollar gift card- which we were told we could use at the resort or use it to pay maintenance fees we were told the card would never expire.

    When we tried to use it in October to pay our maintenance fees we were of course told that it expired in September I tried to explain that there was no expiration date on the card but the said their records showed that it had expired. It also turns out the bonus weeks cannot be sold and when I tried to book a vacation for my husband and I no one ever got back to us and our numerous calls were ignored finally 3 months after our original request date someone did call but I have been so feed up I can't believe that I fell for such a huge scam.

    Oh and after owning this piece of junk for two years I have never used it, and recently they have started calling and asking for my mortgage payment early. Can you believe that calling me at work and asking me to pay my payment early of course this is supposed to be a convince to me.

    Update: CR is not advertising "Go Green" by signing up for their automatic payment system to help eliminate the need to send payments through the mail.

    Don't do it!

    Once you set up the automatic withdraw from your bank account, about the only way to stop it is to close your account. Don't be fooled by this latest tactic.

    CR's recent increase in harassing phone calls is also an attempt to get you to sign up for autopay. Don't reward them by stabilizing their cash flow based on ending their harassment. This is pure extortion!

    I am not sure what is going on with Tahiti Village (Consolidated Resorts); research has turned up so much about frauds and scams. We have had this property since 2007 with automatic payments to the company, had not my cc expired and not updated I would not have known that something was wrong. Who is ASNY, they are relentless about getting a payment as though after 2-3 years of auto pay I would not pay anymore.

    Since, I have not had a good feeling about this timeshare or company...I have never used this property and from the start I hate I wasted all this money. Can anyone tell me what is truly going on with ConsolidatedResorts & Tahiti Village.

    In Desperation,

    W. Adell
