Timeshare Scams

Westgate Resorts - Is it a scam?

I recently reported about Silverleaf Resorts and was amazed at the response that I got to it. These guys are definitely scumbags. Googling for them brings up a epinions on the second link. What about Westgate Resorts? They are on the first floor of my building with an office on the second. When I leave work at around 6:30, they are getting started with their day. I can smell the fresh baking cookies as I leave for my car and all the lower middle income people streaming in for some free food, and dreams of sitting by the pool sipping a margarita. Is this a scam? Westgate Resorts is the third largest timeshare company in the U.S. Can a company grow to this size playing it fair. Do they use the same high-pressure sales tactics that timeshares are so well known for. Watch this space as I try and find the answers.

  • Westgate Resorts Houston tried to scam me with a story of all the money I can make by them renting my timeshare, when I told the lady "Yolanda" that I could not pay the $100.00 bucks down she came back and said that "cuz they like us so much" they were gonna pay the 100 bucks deposit and all we had to do was sign legal contracts and not say anything to anyone in the contract office about our "special" deal? 10 minutes later we were out of that place with our plastic camera and fake vacation that they promised us!! SCUMBAGS

  • My family has stayed in Westgate Resorts for years, but through timeshare we bought many years ago. We have traveled extensively and have never had any problems with the timeshare we bought many years ago and still enjoy. Our timeshare was bought from Grand Vista and is located in Mesa Arizona Painted Mountain Golf Resort. Westgate took over management of Grand Vista and all service has been great. Owning a timeshare has provided our family with many beautiful resort stays.

  • westgate resorts is owned by a group of thieves...they are david Siegel, steve siegel, richard seigel...these characters are nothing but swindlers protected by high paid attorneys.....read the fine print on your contracts and you will find that you own nothing but a legal obligation to pay these monsters your hard earned money...the siegel family is nothing but the bankrupt version of an old fashioned madoff scam...their main targets are working class americans, the seigals have been feuding within their own familys, and now we are all crashing to the ground in this crisis....thank you david...

  • Westgate does not care about the people who work for them and are breaking laws everyday. when you sell for this co. you are matched up with clients who walk in the door-black with black, aisan with asian, middle aged with middle age etc...I know because I was instructed to do just that. They do not pay thier reps well at all and have the worst reputation in the biz as a co. to work for.

  • i have been scammed twice for about $1000. i am currently working with a firm called "timeshare closing services
    inc." they have verbally and in contract form told me that they will take over all my financial responsibilities with my timeshare
    (1bdrm/1 week) in las vegas. i checked them out with the bbb and found they were o.k., in business for 12 years. i was told by firm to put $2495 in escrow where neither one of us can get to the money until all documents are signed and notorized. after being scammed twice...I don't trust anyone. is there anyone out there that can shed some light on this firm. please reply with any comment

  • My husband and I found this company out of Portland ME to help us cancel 3 deeds at Wyndham. We received our surrender notices yesterday in the mail along with a refund settlement check of almost $10K. It was our Down Payments and some of the initial purchase price i'm guessing, either way we are out and DONE with this nightmare. I would check them out TimeshareReleaseNow.com Portland, Maine is the ones we talked to. My name is Tonia B. if you talk to them give them my name and get a discount, I can be reached at 603-662-0252 for any reference checks about this group. They are amazing, everyone should know about them! Pass the word
