Not resolved

I have been a Silver leaf timeshare owner for 2 years now and have NEVER used my timeshare to go on vacation. I have been on vacation many times, but not through Silver leaf because booking through this timeshare is IMPOSSIBLE.

This is the biggest scam EVER. There is a lot of things they don't tell you when you sign up for the timeshare. They failed to tell us that you had to pay for RCI membership every year. They failed to tell us that vacations had to be booked nearly 1 year in advance, if you can even get anything booked.

It is nearly impossible to even get a reservation with RCI. We were not told that along with our monthly charge there would also be a maintenance fee of like 70$$. When i called and complained about all this to customer service I was told: "You need to understand RCI has to fulfill their customer's requests before Silver leafs". When speaking to customer service about the false information that was used to lure me into this purchase i was also told that many sales people in the company were let go because they were using false information to make a sale as if that was supposed to make it better.

The list goes on and on.

I would not recommend this to anyone. STAY AWAY.

Product or Service Mentioned: Silverleaf Resorts Vacation Ownership.

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!

We have been owners for years. We have never had trouble getting a reservation to a Silverleaf resort, even when we tried to reserve in less than the 30 day requirement.

Your membership to RCI is provides you with more options than just Silverleaf's resorts, but you do not have to buy it...see comment from RCI rep on other post. We have gotten other great deals from RCI outside of exchanging for our timeshare including a great cruise. Additionally, there is not any other charges besides your maintenance unless you are looking to book bonus time on a weekend.

I have an older contract and do not have this fee. We have used our timeshare for years with no problems.
