Vacation Ventures — timeshare resale fraud
my husband and i attended this 2 hour seminar with the hope that we would be made an offer for our timeshare...a real cash offer. i told the person on the phone that i would NOT attend if they were going to sell me something. i was assurred that we would not be sold anything. my husband took time off of work, we drove an hour, sat there for 2 hours listening to a very informative spiel by Ken Labossiere, then the "offer" we were made is that WE could pay HIM $3995 for HIM to take our timeshare off our hands. now, to be fair to them...the card in the mail said, "they'd make us an offer"...and technically they did, just not the offer we were expecting, or within the normal interpretation of the phrase, "i'll make you an offer". but the tactics they used, the deceit in getting us there, the time we took off work...we were not happy. and some of the statements they made to frighten people, ie. that your timeshare obligation would be passed on to your children, grandchildren, etc...not true per our legal council. so...again, buyer beware.
