Now what! Look what I've done and what a TimeShare Scam it is.

 
Before we talk about doing a timeshare cancellation, let’s start at the end and work our way forwards. You’ve done something that you don’t know how to get out of.
 
You’ve purchase a timeshare! Ho boy, now you need to figure out how to do a timeshare cancellation. You wonder how you got yourself into this mess, but more importantly you keep telling yourself, I need to learn how to cancel my timeshare.
 
You thought you were smarter than this. How did it happen? At this point, you also begin to wonder if you’re involved in one of these timeshare scams you have heard about.
 

No, Is Never A Good Answer, At A Timeshare Presentation

Fact is, when anyone goes to a timeshare presentation, they putting themselves into the ring with well-trained, hard-core salespeople who are paid very well not to take “NO” for an answer.
 
Okay now let’s go back to the beginning shall we?
 
It all started off when you and your family were thinking about taking a wonderful vacation. You planned it out for months excited by the details and finally the day has arrived when you’re finally on your way.
 
It’s been a lot of hard work, you’ve and your family have had to scrap and save, pinched pennies whenever possible, gone without when you could, in an effort that you and your loved ones could have the most exciting of vacation. You’ve done your best. You’re tired. You could really use a vacation.
 
It’s a proven fact, that the tired people are always more venerable. How many people do you know that start their vacation well rested? Not many, huh?
You are unaware that when you arrive at your great vacation destination that there are people there that prey on vacationers just like you, and they are on the lookout for someone just like you. You and your family have vacationers written all over you.
 
You look tired and maybe a little lost trying to get to your hotel; or maybe you’ve already gotten to your hotel, unpacked and you and the family have decided to go have a look around just to check things out.
 

Welcome, How About A Free Gift - What a Timeshare Scam

As your passing by an information booth, someone calls you over. They are very friendly and want to welcome you to the vacation destination and perhaps give you a map of all the attractions. Their booth also has brochures of exciting places you may want to visit. Seems harmless right?
 
While you are standing at the booth looking over things and places you and your family would like to go, the nice person in the booth strikes up a casual conversation.
 
They start asking you where you’re from, how long are you going to be in town, and who doesn’t ask what do you do for a living? You get the picture. Unbeknownst to you, you are being asked timeshare qualifying questions that the nice person in the booth has been very well trained to ask.
 
They are separating the non-prospects from the prospects. Then - BINGO - you’ve answered the questions correctly. You’re just what they are looking for. The gleam in their eyes that was there when you walked over, just got a little brighter.
 

It’s Free Now – But A Big Price Later - Turns into a Timeshare Scam

Now they have something “FREE” to give you. Could be attraction tickets, free dinners, or so on. And they are absolutely “free” all you have to do is attend a little 90 minute presentation (Promise! No more than 90 minutes) and hear about how you and your family can have a wonderful vacation every year at beautiful resort locations around the world for just pennies on the dollar.
 
And so you take the bait. After all it’s just 90 minutes and what could it really hurt. Besides you get something “free” out of the deal.
 
You know there is going be a sales pitch involved but you’re not going to buy anything. Besides you really can’t afford it. But that stuff they are giving away ‘free’ looks really tempting. So you agree.
 

90 Minutes Turns Into 4 Hours

That 90 minute presentation ended up turning into 4 hours of intense sales pitches. Every time you gave a reason why you couldn’t buy, the salesperson had a counter reason why you could. And they could and would make it possible for you to buy.
 
Even to the point of opening you up a line of credit on a brand new credit card so that you didn’t have to come up with any out of pocket money, you can charge your down payment.
 
And by the end of it all, you and your family walk away with a signed timeshare contract in hand. And for many people who own a timeshare, that’s where the nightmare begins.
 
Months pass and you now begin to realize that many things they told you are in fact not true. Some were even straight out lies, so now, you find yourself asking what many call the timeshare nightmare. It’s at this point that you begin to ask yourself over and over again, how you got yourself into this mess.

There is no such thing as FREE. Time is one of your most valued commodity. 

Timeshare presentations will usually cost you more than time.

It is crazy how they sell those, I'd call it a gray area of real estate law. As a sales person I would not feel good in that kind of environment. Nothing in life is free, its always something attached.
