A few months ago, I posted a blog to this site in an effort to locate individuals interested in a class action lawsuit. Be advised that I no longer maintain the blog at: http://tahitivillageclassactionlawsuit.blogspot.com/
I filed chapter 7 and included Tahiti Village in the bankruptcy. My association with Tahiti Village ends next month. With that said, I am preparing for a fresh start and I can't wait to get out of this Consolidated Resorts nightmare. One thing is for certain, I will never purchase timeshare ever again.
I attended a timeshare at Tahiti Village in Las Vegas. It was a vacation for me and my husband and my brother and sister n law. This was my first time flying and going to Vegas, so you can imagine the excitement. I wasn't familiar with the timeshare market but my husband had won the vacation by calling in to a popular radio station and he wanted to surprise me with a 1 year anniversary present.
Once we arrived at the hotel, I was amazed at the beauty of the architecture and lay out of Tahiti Village. We had to attend the presentation which was suppose to be ~90 minutes. We had already decided not to purchase and we informed the representative but he kept saying, Hey, there goes another buyer. What are yall waiting for.' I should have known then but now I know when your mind is made up just say no and walk away. Well, we were lead to purchase, the four of us. We were off scheduled for the day... and just did not enjoy the rest of the trip.
Today, i am so frustrated about the whole ordeal. We received a statement in December saying we owed closing cost and we had already paid upon purchasing. We tried to call and set up a conference call with the representatives of Consolidated Resorts, in which they were suppose to call within 72 hours, and no call has been received to date. Now, it is January and each representative I call seems to not understand why I am not paying a payment. I hope that this experience will help others to avoid these companies. Please schedule a vacation that you can control and will not have to sit through a presentation that may change your perspective on vacations. Thank you!!!
In November 2008 me and my wife while in vegas on vacation went to a presentation to get tickets to a show. We were told the presentation would take 2 hours and they kept us there for 4.5 hours. We refused over and over until they made us what we thought was a wonderful deal. The sales re threw in free trips to Hawaii and Dubai and we were witnessing new owners popping balloons and winning trips.
It was very entertaining to the concept of being an owner. We agreed to the offer and also were invited up to pop balloons and spin a wheel. We won a trip to Egypt and the bonus package giving us 6 free trips in total. That would excite anyone. After more of our time in a private office we were presented with endless promises that we couldn't lose out because the property could be sold back to Consolidated Resorts. They took us on a tour of the place and gave us plenty of free items. Even gave us a ride to our hotel because our ride couldn't wait any longer.
We received our package in the mail and I quickly noticed the pre printed package of trips that we were lied to about that gets mailed to everyone. And the trick is nothing is free like promised. We brought into this scam because the offering of the trips alone benefited more than the actual timeshare offer. I called the 800 number to be told by the costumer service person ' I have a meeting to attend so you'll have to call back' so I gave her my number to return a call and it never happened.
You can't get in touch with anyone to discuss the issues.
Once we called in to plan our yearly trip to Myrtle beach we were told by the intervals rep that we had to pay them a transfer fee. (that we already paid to CR) and it would cost us $534 for a week I almost lost my mind. I could book that easily on my own without their help.
I have canceled the credit card they have on record to stop payment and I'm seeking out counsel to get out of this scam. it's all lies!
