Canadian Family is Terrorized at Timeshare Presentation in Vallarta

Mexican Timeshare Solutions received an email earlier this month about a woman named Melissa who was on a vacation on the Pacific town called Puerto Vallarta. She wants to share her story on how she attended a timeshare presentation with her family for -what appeared to be a good deal- $300 Dollars in exchange.

The hunt

The OPC (the timeshare promoters on the street) was on the boardwalk at the “old Vallarta”,  he had a friendly approach and after some conversation with them, he convinced them to attend a timeshare presentation the following day.
The OPC showed up early next morning at the hotel gate they were staying at. They were given $100 US and the remaining would be paid to them at the end of the 90 min. presentation.

The arrival

Once we arrived, we gave our home address and credit card information to a lady, a project director and the sales manager. We were asked several times if we would be willing to invest money on a timeshare today before they even introduce us to the guy who was going to show us around.
Once we finally agreed, we were explained that this was not, in fact, a timeshare. -“you are entering an exclusive condominium tower sold only to potential residents looking for retirement soon.

The sales presentation turned into 4 hours, after we declined 10 times their offers, the salesman told us he would get a cab for us to take us back to the resort we were staying.

Another man approached us and asked to donate our gift to a nonprofit organization as they needed the money more than we did. “You are traveling to Mexico and these kids have no food you know…” the man said.
My husband said to them: “Don´t make promises you can´t keep. I know that money is going to your pocket!”

Either way, the man didn´t pay the $200 US promised and refused to call for a cab. When my husband, asked for an explanation, the man told my husband that he would use that money to bribe police so we would spend the rest of our vacation in jail. We started walking out the building.
He came after us and started yelling profanities in front of our daughter; he wouldn’t allow us to leave the premises until we signed a release form assuring we were given $300 US. My husband looked at me and signed.

The lie

Once we were going down the hill, a pickup truck pulled next to us; a large man got off and grabbed my husband by the shirt and told him to give him back the $100 US he was given earlier otherwise he would die and us would end up in prison. “I work for the police” he claimed.

My husband handed over the money; we were scared to death by now.
We finally found our way back to the resort with the help of a taxi driver. We stayed at the resort the rest of our stay.
This experience eliminated the word fun to our vacations to Mexico. I don´t think we´ll ever go back.

Buy timeshares – What’s the big risk about it?

The timeshare industry keeps getting a bad reputation, and yet there are many people who still pay thousands of dollars for them. In fact, time shares are one of the top sellers in the hotel industry; however, that doesn’t make them a good purchase. Learn more about timeshare scamsand why buy timeshares might not be a wise financial movement.

What is a timeshare?

Timeshare ownership, also known as fractional ownership or vacation club membership, is a very special type of ownership or use rights that several parties share.  Timeshares can be generally found in important vacation spots. In most cases, the resort owns the property, so your purchase is not legally considered real estate; you only own the right to use the resort during a specific week of the year.

Most timeshares are sold for weeks known as “intervals”, which mean you purchase a specific week of the year, to use it during a certain number of years. However, there are also other plans, such as the Points-program, in which you buy a certain number of points and exchange them for a specific room and length of stay.

Buy timeshares

Timeshare sales are extraordinarily successful in the travel industry, and a very profitable business for the resorts. Every timeshare unit is sold to 52 different people, one for each week of the year, and each week is sold for at least $15,000 USD, that means that the resort gets about $780,000 USD for each unit. That is without considering other expenses, such as the maintenance fees.

Nevertheless, many people buy timeshares, not because they wanted to, but because they were practically forced to it. Timeshare presentationsare particularly known for being misleading and high pressure, which is the main reason why most people feel they were scammed.

10 Reasons why NOT to buy a timeshare

These are 10 reasons why not to buy timeshares:

  1. You will have to pay expensive timeshare maintenance fees, which are likely to increase each year
  2. It will be extremely difficult to sell it, not to say almost impossible, being that the resale market poor is
  3. If a natural disaster occurs, or if there is a remodeling taking place at the resort, you will have to pay special assessment fees
  4. Timeshares do not increase in value, in fact, they devalue almost 70% at the moment that you first purchase it
  5. There are lots of hidden fees, and all of them need to be paid on time, whether you use your timeshare or not
  6. Doing a timeshare exchange is a difficult process, and perhaps it may be more trouble than it’s worth.
  7. Timeshare salespeoplewill tell you that you can rent your timeshare in case you don’t use it. What they don’t tell you is that renting your timeshare requires a lot of paperwork and the payment of extra fees.
  8. If you do not do your payments on time, they will send you to collections very quickly.
  9. Contrary to what you might believe, timeshare travel is expensive, being that you have to cover a lot of yearly fees
  10. They are definitely not for spontaneous traveling. You are attached to a specific week of a year

The best way to get out

Unfortunately, due to the misleading tactics used to sell timeshares, there are lots of people who have become a victim of a timeshare scam, and the best solution to get out of the trap is by cancelling the contract.

At Mexican Timeshare Solutions we strive to give back freedom to people who purchased timeshare under the wrong reasons such as the financial investment spiel.
