Back in 2011, while attending a timeshare industry meeting, I suggested that the entire timeshare community come out with a strong message. That message being that timeshare owners should NOT do business with any person, company, organization and/or entity that initiated contact.
The people representing various companies within the timeshare community wouldn't agree with me for one reason or another. They had their reasons, I have my guesses as to why.
Back then, as now, I had yet to come across any company that would make me change my stance.
However, it is reassuring that some organizations do in fact echo my stance. Those organizations are, in my opinion, the ones that are truly looking out for timeshare owners. Seek them out.
