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

timeshare presnetaiton

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. 

This story happens everyday in Mexico. Many vacations are ruined by unscrupulous people who want to sell timeshares the hard way.

    We attended a vacation club sales presentation today at Encanto Bahia in Mazatlan Emerald Bay area formerly LaJolla. Was promised 6000 pesos for attending but at the end when we said no; they would only give us 2000 pesos. You can't trust even what is written on the invitation!

    Not new, those presentations are totally a waste of time, dont get caught , they only want you to sign their nasty membership contract without any benefits, my parents felt in that and actually they are paying a big amount of money every month ! the worst is that they cant use it because is never available.

    Esto no es nuevo , es una lastima como la industria de los tiempo compartidos sigue abusando de esta manera a las personas que no saben muy bien como funciona, lo se bien porque mis padres que son extranjeros hace unos años vivieron una experiencia similar, esten muy atentos y no asistan a las presentaciones.

    Timeshares are, and always have been a a legal scam.

    A single week for a units generally sell for 10s of thousands. I've seen them over $65000

    But let's take an average sale price of $25,000- Multiply that by 52 weeks in a year, and they are are basically selling 1 bedroom apartments for 1.3 million dollars each.

    Then, add to that they charged each of the 52 owners $700 , or more, a year in maintencance fees.

    That's another $36,000 per unit every year to the Corporation.

    Given the obscene numbers at play here, anybody that didn't see this coming is a fool.

    It is very important to know the dilemmas and possible problems in buying timeshares before they decide to buy. You need to make sure that you price you timeshare right. You may want to get an appraisal on your timeshare from a reputable company. I’m glad that there are tips and ways to avoid such problems and conflicts with timeshares.

    no puedo creer hasta donde han llegado, me alegro que la noticia aun pueda llegar a muchas personas para que vean lo que realmente son!!!

    I found a broker who was willing to take the time share off my hands for $3,000. Is this the only other way to rid oneself of this burden? By paying money to give something away?

    I have had to endure the presentations 3 times over the last 5 years for discounted vacations. I say go for it if you have to but be very careful, if you are easily swayed or convinced they will pounce and pounce really hard. The contracts are legally binding.
