There are a number of methods used by unscrupulous ‘organisations’ which facilitate the (often aggressive) mis-selling of Timeshare and Holiday Club memberships. It is important that victims who have been mis-sold Timeshare realise that they are not alone – hundreds of people are taken in by these scams every year and increasing numbers are seeking professional legal advice in order to recoup monies lost. Cooper Burgess International are experts in this field and our experienced legal team is best placed to seek the redress for innocent clients who have been mis-sold by rogue companies.
This typically involves a direct approach whereby the victim is offered an incentive to attend a 'Timeshare presentation’ whilst on holiday. Incentives can be provided in the form of scratch cards or promotional literature promising ‘free holidays’ or other high cash value prizes. Crucially, these prizes are offered only in exchange for attendance at a forthcoming Timeshare ‘presentation’ (usually in a nearby location).
Attendees are often subjected to an aggressive sales pitch within an atmosphere which is designed to intimidate. Victims are given the impression that they are obligated to sign a contract and pay a deposit, thereby committing to a purchase.
Usually there is a large disparity between the sales pitch and the reality, with victims actually purchasing Timeshare that is, in fact, vastly different from the advertised package. It is not unusual to find that the advertised location and facilities are of substandard quality and that apartment availability is severely restricted. Additionally, victims find themselves bound into contracts which incur escalating (and unrealistic) maintenance fees.
