My wife and I go suckered into buying into Silver leaf Resorts on Lake Palestine. They promised us the moon and delivered nothing.
We booked three times before we could ever get a room to stay in, then when we did, the sewer was overflowing into the floor in the bathroom, and the couple staying next to us had their pair of jet skis stolen right from in front of their condo that night. Anyway, after trying over and over to get into the condos to stay the night, only to be turned away each time saying that they were over booked, we decided we WERE going to get our money back. We had paid them over $8000 not including any maintenance fees. I called the resort and they basically laughed in my face when i asked for a full refund.
SO, I wrote to the Attorney Generals Office and filed a formal complaint with them. I explained how this was a fraud/scam and explained to them how i was lied to in order to get me to buy into this. Long story short, Attorney Generals Office investigated my complaint, we went through a bunch of legal mumbo jumbo, which they completely took care of and i received a check from Silver leaf resort for a full refund plus all maintenance fees i had paid in the two years i was an owner. Silver leaf told me in order to get the refund, i would have to sigh a waiver for them saying that I would NEVER tell anyone about this refund or how i got it.
Of course i signed it, but i was then advised by the Attorney Generals Office that the waiver wasn't a legal document and wasn't worth the paper it was written on. Since then i have been telling everyone i know to get their money back and have helped alot of people get every dime of the money back they spent on this ripoff.
If you need any help, you can call me and i will walk you through the process. 903-724-1123
