Timeshare / Fraud/Scam

1 Pigeon Forge, TN, United States Review updated:

We have been scammed, lied to, taken advantage of, etc, etc, etc by Grand Crowne. Two GC employees in Branson, Mo told us the sales staff at Pigeon Forge lied to us. I have their names. One has been with GC for many years, (or so they said.) But, I have called several times and asked for him and he answered the phone. We have NEVER been able to use this thing when or where we wanted. Oh, we also tried the "make your reservations a year in advance trick, , too". What a joke. We're in our sixties and cannot take vacation due to paying hundreds of dollars each month on this atrocity I will not allow something like this to take advantage of me.. We're ready to do something about this mess. I have tons of ammunition and information to make this happen. This has become my priority. Oh, by the way, GC has an employee who is running blocker on this website, to try and disspell the severity of what they are doing. I WILL NOT BE DETERRED. To discuss this, call me at : 205.542.5232. Remember, there is strength in numbers, so, let's go after them...

    I was pitched by this company to offer my timeshare for sale or rent. The prices quoted as being available to me were much higher than the market value and aroused my suspicion. The upfront fee was sizable and the whole thing seemed suspicious. When i cited complaints on this site, I was told that they were probably posted by "disgruntled employees" i checked with one person listed and this was not the case.

    I've talked to Chris Nielsen in regards to my timeshare. I'm trying to sell it and he said that he will and I paid $599.00 since 2006. I have not gotten any phone calls or status on my timeshare. Please help.

    I don't appreciate being called from a machine. If I was interested in selling, I'd put it out there. It's rude and unprofessional to have automated unsolicited calls for sales. I will never consider them in the future based on the impression I got just from that call. I don't know how they got my number but it's not okay to call me. I'm on the "do not call" list plus I have no idea who they are. I've never purchased from them. Ok that's all I have to say.

    You need to just donate your timeshare. I used The have a good process to help you get out of the timeshare and help a charity of your choice. To many scams out there than to keep trying to sell it. Good Luck
