Diamond Resorts International / sales presentation misrepresentation
We recently visted Williamsburg, VA and were mislead into accepting "a little thing we do for Diamond Members" which was a free dinner to meet other owners. I specifically asked it the was a sale presentation, and the hostess promised it was not. This turned out to be a total misrepresentation. After we finished the meal, we were informed we were required to attend a 90 minute sales presentation the next morning.
The next day, we advised the presenter that we felt we were tricked into attending the meeting and had no intention of buying additional points. She still continued as she was required to do. After we again told her, we were not buying, she turned us over to another person who offered us "this little thing the new owners, Appolo, was doing for current owners, 14, 000 points for $2, 900.00."
The paperwork turned out to be for the Sampler program. He told us they had just started this program and had not had a chance to arrange new paperwork. This was defiantly as lie. We called Diamond to ask a question about this offering and were told there was no" special program" and what we had purchased was the "Sampler Program" and all the rules and regulations that came with it. They told us that the use of the points was limited to specific resorts during specific times, but if we wanted to purchase additional points, we could apply the $2, 900.00 to that purchase.
This was just a way for them to sell us additional points. Watch out for these people. When you think you have figured out, they will come up with another way to scam you.
