Not resolved

Dear Sir,

I owned a white week with a balance of $750.00. My sister and I put together to upgrade to a Diamond card in Galveston, TX. She paid $5000.00 (paid up for a year) to get this upgrade in April. We had bonus time in July, and chose to spend it at Piney Shores in Conroe, TX. We were introduced to Phil Slack, who said he could get us a better deal on a Presidential. He took my white week with a balance of $750 (I had paid for $150.00 for 7 years), the upgrade to Diamond, and an additional $2500 on my credit card. The cost to me was to be $400.00 (this included everything). He gave me his cell # if I needed help (it was canceled), and he could not be reached at Piney Shores.

I was pressured into this sale and called to cancel it, after receiving a bill for $533.06. I did not know that I had 6 days to cancel. I have spoken to Marilyn Brooks (ext. 5514) several times, but she told me that I had to pay $461.61 before she could lower me to a Lodge. They have taken away my vacation time, I have nothing else to give Silverleaf. Is Silverleaf a "Ponzi scheme?"

Timeshare Advocacy International is the leader in timeshare contract resolutions!

If you have been a victim of deceptive sales practices during your purchase or upgrade of your timeshare we have the solution. We are the only advocacy group in the U.S. that focuses on deceptive sales practices within the timeshare industry that is accredited with the BBB .

Additionally, we are the only company to win in court against the biggest timeshare company in the U.S. 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'm sorry to say but they do turn your credit over. I let mine go back when my wife was laid off.

Now I have a forclosure on my record.

This is after constant harrassment from the main office day and night. Silverleaf has gone completely ghetto at the Canyon Lake facility.


is lying to you. she is nice but she wants you to pay your bills so silverleaf can take you off accounts receivable for the quarter.

tell them to stop calling and turn them into the texas attorney general. mention names. Her boss is Jim Scott and Ed Lahart.

mention them to the attorney general. if you do this they will leave you alone and NO THEY DO NOT TURN YOU INTO CREDIT.


Whatever they are..they are all criminals and this company should be shut down permantly!!
