Not resolved

Did you go to the presentation and won a prize?

I am about to do this. You can win car, cash or an “exotic island adventure”. I figure since they are a timeshare company, everyone will win the vacation. I called the awards verification center at 866-804-8590 yesterday on 10/14/2008 and spoke to Dedra at 2:29PM. She said the vacation was a Beachfront Resort in Hawaii, Jamaica, Aruba, or Puerto Rico. I asked what my out of pocket costs were going to be and she stated just air fare. To be sure she asked her manager who confirmed that everything was included even three meals a day and only air fare would be my out of pocket. Then, I called the confirmation center at 800-720-5621 and spoke to Samuel at 2:39PM. He stated that the tour would only last 1 and ½ hours. Mine begins at 2:00PM and by 3:30PM, “I would have my prize in hand and will be leaving”.

If any attended such a presentation, I would greatly appreciate your feedback. I will let you know what happens to me.

Timeshare Advocacy International Wins Lawsuit against World’s Largest Resort.

In November of 2010 TAI was sued by the largest timeshare developer in the world for assisting timeshare owners out of their contracts with their resort. The charges ranged from violating the Tennessee Uniformed Secrets Act, Tennessee Consumer Rights Act, unauthorized practice of law, intentional interference with business relationships, civil conspiracy, breach of contract, unfair competition, procurement of breach of contract, and unjust enrichment. On July 19, 2012 it took a jury less than 45 minutes to deliberate and return a verdict of “Not Guilty” on all charges.

“We are excited to finally have this decision behind us so we can now focus on one thing, and that is our clients. During the last 2 years they have been trying to do one thing and that is to shut us up and bankrupt us through the court system. We always felt that at the end of the day a jury would see that TAI is in the business to help people. If the timeshare industry would stop lying and sell their product honestly we would be out of business,” said Sean Austin.

“The jury’s verdict represents a victory for free speech and free enterprise, and against corporate bullying,” said Austin’s attorney, Greg Oakley of DHPM PC in a press release.

Timeshare Advocacy International is headquartered in Mount Juliet, TN and currently has a staff of 19 that do nothing but consult, coach, and mentor timeshare owners who have been deceived during their purchase or upgrade of their timeshares. “We specialize in helping timeshare owners not only get out of their timeshare contracts if they were lied to, but we also help them understand what happened and how they were scammed so this hopefully will not happen again!

I have worked for this company as well as taking the tour as a possible customer. The "free vacation" is only a hotel. You pay airfare, travel expenses while in the location (bus, taxi etc), meals and everything else.


I worked for Silverleaf for 3 years, your meals are NOT included it isnt an alli nvlusive trip - trust me you get a scratch off card, have to match 5 of 5 to win anything but the exotic island getaway then you get your choice of vegas orlando or a cruise, and usually a 40 visa and a 40 gas voucher...


Don't get your hopes up.
