Escape To Paradise / Refusal to refund fee

1 United States Review updated:

This company promised to refund their fee for selling our timeshare. We dropped our selling price several times in the 2 years listed with them. They never contacted us with a buyer. 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

    We listed two timeshares to sell with them in Jan of 2006. They took our money and acted like they had a buyer for each of them. Nothing has happen since then. I called them 3 months ago and wanted to talk to Melinda Hoffabert but she was on the phone.
    I told the girl that answered the phone to lower the price because I wanted to get them sold. I was told she would tell Melinda this. It has not happened. I called today and they are not answering the phone and it will not let me leave a message. If someone called and wanted to buy a timeshare they are out of luck, what kind of company is this ? They are not planning on selling any timeshares and are there only to contact people to get their money.

    I have tried numerous times to get in touch with the Hofferberts, with no avail. This company, along with many others have no intentions of renting or selling anyone's Time
    Share. They are in this business, which is booming, because so many people who have lost jobs or have other reasons for not being able to pay for their TimeShares. The only people making the money are the so called..."Rent or Sell Your TimeShare People". It is a
    shame that these people have no ethics or consideration for others in need of their help.
