national, international and state timeshare laws and strict regulations are not easily found. THEY ARE ESSENTIAL TO STOP THE FRAUD AND THIEVERY OF VERY MANY TIMESHARES COMPANIES. CONTACT YOUR STATE AND NATIONAL LEGISLATORS AND DEMAND THAT STRINGENT TIMESHARE LAWS MUST BE ENACTED AND STRICTLY ENFORCED. i own at the fraud/sham ridden THE MANHATTAN CLUB, nyc, a fine place marred by greedy management. owners have NO say in any maanagement issues as is required. they know how to manipulate timeshare/condo laws.

Unless you are still within your rescission period (10 days in Florida), you cannot "cancel" it. You own deeded property just like a house. If you want to shed yourself of ownership, then you have a few options. But first of all, are the mortgage and maintenance fees all paid off and up to date? If not, then your options are to pay these off and find a new owner/taker for your unit. Or, you can just stop all payments and let it foreclose. You will lose all the money you've sunk into this so far, face a barrage of collection calls and letters, and probably face a ding on your credit score or rating.

If everything is paid off, then try selling your unit or listing it for give away. Some resort systems such as Wyndham, Diamond, and Westgate have deed back programs so you can try contacting the resort's Homeowners' association to see if they will take your unit back.

The one big caution in your situation is to not go contacting any law firms or companies that claim they can/will "cancel" your timeshare because those are usually scams.

Mendacity is the standard operating procedure in timeshare sales. That's why they have a clause in the contract that says you cannot rely on any of the lies the salesmen told you, only the long and dense legal language of the contract that you are way too tired to read after they have gotten through with you.

I have never personally dealt with timeshare exit companies, but my opinion is that they are generally of the same class of liars. Scammers like proven suckers.

Hi My husband and I are owners with Wyndham. We have own for many years and are paid off with deed in Las Vegas. We are able to transfer points in rci. Last summer we visited a divi resort in aruba We loved it so so much. While we were there we wee approached by a salesperson who advised us that we would no longer be able to transfer our point into rci and divi wpuld not have there resorts listed with rci anylonget My husband and I really were upset at this point we already had our next years trip planned and wanted to come back. It was a perfect resort for our family. So we went to a sales meeting. Low and behold we ended up purchasing with interval international due to the fact that they told us that we would not be able to stay at divi resorts in aruba through our wyndham timeshare. Our plan was to try and sell our wyndham or just drop it and keep this one. I just realized there are still weeks available with rci at the same exact resort. They basically mislead us with false info to purchase a timeshare with them. We are so upset. Is this a valid case?? Kelli guarino

I work with a consumer advocacy group that works with timeshare owners. This group is aimed at helping timeshare owners that bought the timeshare because of the timeshare being misrepresented by the sales person, or were not fully explained important information that would effect the buying decision.

This group fights the resorts to get the ownership cancelled and many times has gotten back any monies that were paid to the resort. We have a list of common practices where we have been very successful (over 90% success rate).

If you feel like you bought the timeshare and found things out after you bought it, and if that would have led you to not buy the timeshare... please shoot me a pm and I will get back to you with the details.

Thanks for reading!

Sadly, these timeshare sales people will tell you anything, including outright lies, to get you to purchase. It appears that's what they did in your case. If you have passed your rescission period, then you are stuck with your purchase. I would not go trying to pursue legal action because you have to be able to prove that you were lied to. It would just be a matter of your word against the sales peoples'.

yes i was lied to and led to believe that my timeshare would go up in value and I would be able to sell very easy because location being in aruba Marriott surf club it s fully paid for but I expect at least half of my money back I will not pay any money up front unless the resort re-calms time share from me and guarantees full release and no credit liens. I paid 28,000 for a annual usage gold season an the maintenance fees have just keep going up the said they would resale them for us and that never happened either.. all these time share companies like Marriott, Hilton ,and Diamond resorts should be force to buy them back for half cost and resale them. Legislation needs to be changed to help people. Not corporation that lobby threw American resort development association . that help resorts out not the owners of the timeshares class action suit against both of them for fraud and deception.

You are correct that Wyndham is certainly not in any way a "scam". However, Wyndham timeshare sales weasels are unfortunately among the most aggressive and deceitful to be found anywhere outside of Mexico (in my personal opinion, anyhow --- and ditto for the timeshare sales weasels at Westgate, by the way).

Unlike buyers, sales weasels know that nothing they SAY is legally binding and only the written content of the contract matters AT ALL. Actually, even the contract itself (which most buyers unfortunately don't even bother to thoroughly read) states in writing that any and all verbal statements, representations or claims are NOT legally binding.

There is an old saying that "A fool and his money are soon parted." Sadly, hungry and deceitful timeshare sales weasels prove this old saying to be true --- over and over again, every single day.
