The purpose of this website is to
warn you, your family, friends and coworkers of the players in the timeshare
and fractional ownership industry about the schemes, scams and stories that
they use to steal your money. Our experience has been they make everything look so wonderful and
great, tell you stories but the bottom line is it's big business and these
resorts and partners are out to rob you. They tell you that you'll
receive money in the future from the sale of other properties or through
fractional ownership, but it never happens.
Booking a future vacation through a timeshare is normally
a nightmare or almost impossible. This website was developed to help
protect you and others by providing our true and actual facts of what we
experienced, if you're traveling or know someone who is, please take the
time to read the facts. These practices aren't isolated to just the
Playa Grande Resort, they exist at resorts worldwide, though the schemes
that are used may vary. For your best protection, you need to strongly consider
staying away from all resort promotional programs and not to sign up to
attend sales presentations at any resort or location, they will promise you
gifts and/or money to attend. Always say NO,
we have provided flyers that you can take with you to hand out on your next
trip, (click here to print or view them).
Please help pass the word, the more we do the more people we'll help.
