    Hola. Soy titular de un tiempo Vacacional que estoy a punto de terminar de pagar. Estoy seguro que fui estafado y estoy considerando iniciar una demanda. No entiendo cómo hasta el dia de hoy no se ha hecho un amparo generalizado para erradicar este delito.
    Espero poder coordinar una acción para hacer valer mis derechos.
    Espero respuesta
    Saludos.

    i visited vallarta,cancun, mazatlan , and many others, sometimes salespeople tried to approached me and try to sell me something, a friend of mine one time felt on that trap and at the end of the timeshare presentation , the salespeople force him to buy something,i just ignored him , you should do the same !

    even if this agencies start to procced this wont gonna change anything, trust me , the better option is to cancel the timeshare, But here is the problem, those resorts people are totally experts on the scam and fraud field, so is not gonna be an easy task , also if you are thinking to acquire a timeshare pls dont do it, i had a very bad experience that cost me a lot of money to get out, be careful

    lo mejor seria no llegar al punto en que procedan con agencias de cobranzas, es mas, lo ideal seria nisiquiera adquirir tiempos compartidos

  • Louis RoysDecember 12, 2014, 6:48 pm

    i agree, the best thing to do is to learn about timeshares and don't let it happens to us, and if so, then get a lawyer!!!!
