I was called into coming to take a "tour" around Silver Leaf Resorts in Sheridan, Illinois. It was supposed to be only 90 minutes tops.
It turns out to be 8 hours of being pushed into buying a contract with them! We kept saying NO and finally ending up signing with them. I was so mentally exhausted. The lady even asked me to write a bad check and they would lie to the company saying that I didn't receive my check yet so I had extra time to pay the down payment.
Purchased a old timeshare that they said they just got in and didn't send in to get re-appraised for yet and saying it was the perfect deal for us. Complete Lies! Now I'm on the *** of not wanting to pay my main stance fees and condo fee of $400 monthly. I really just want to say *** it, I'm not paying Silver Leaf anymore!" My question is should I just stop paying them and close my card that they charge?
I know that they won't sue me and they will lie to me saying they are foreclosing the timeshare. I haven't bought a house yet and I'm a newly wed so I need to buy a house in the future. Only renting right now. Or should I get a lawyer and pay a few thousand to dispute the contract?
This will take months and I would still have to pay silver leaf until I don't have to anymore.
Main stance fees are a waste because it's not even being maintained by me. I am just making them get free meals and vacations and getting treated like poo!
