Wyndham Vacation Resorts / Timeshare / Sales Mislead

1 Myrtle Beach, SC, United States Review updated:

On August 19, 2010, we were told by the sales rep at Wyndham Vacation Resorts in Myrtle Beach, SC that we could benefit from this timeshare a certain way only to realize that it was all UNTRUE. We just received our RCI Membership Number 10 days ago and tried to make some reservations only to discover that 28000 points deposited in an RCI account will get us NO WHERE. We spoke to a contact person given to us at RCI cruises on Friday, October 1, 2010 who told us that there is NO WAY to book a cruise with 28000 points (or one RCI week) without paying the discounted fare which is around 500-600 per person, not 150, 250 or 350 per cabin as we were told by our sales person. We find ourselves now with no cruise this winter, no availability for Myrtle Beach next summer and no availability for Bonnet Creek in March 2011. The agent at RCI told us we should think of depositing at least 100000 points in order to get one week in Myrtle Beach. We were told by our sales person that 28000 points + 194 could get us a week anytime (upon availability of course). we feel we've been had and after spending over 13K have nothing to show for it. We are a working couple with 4 kids who just spent a lot of money with Wyndham and nobody is giving us the straight story or a straight answer. Now we have to tell our kids that we have nowhere to take them on spring break and we can't go back to MB next summer… We could not have known all this 7 days after purchasing the timeshare in order to ask for the full refund which we have now done but doesn't look like we will get as nobody is returning our calls or emails.

    They told me all kind of lies just to get my money, and now, I am stuck for ever with these ###! They are worse than a regular real estate mortgage when you are not able to make payments any more. They will ruin your credit and ruin your life for sure! Why people still buying time shares from these criminals? Time share sales should be prohibited in the United States! It is a large scale SCAM!!!

    The South Carolina Timeshare Act has a provision that reserves the reight of a purchaser to bring legal action as a result of actions taken based upon verbal statements. See it here: http://www.scstatehouse.gov/code/t27c032.php. Look at Section 27-32-100, paragraph 11. Elsewhere in the document is a list of the penalties that can be levied against a seller who is found guilty. Basically, 3 strikes is a felony and they spend some time in prison. I am looking for others who have had similar experiences at Edisto Island and other SC locations to pool our experiences and get some class action going.
