signed up for a trial that would last 1 year giving us use of the grounds. We tried to book a reservation for our rv and were told that the area we wanted to go to in tyler didn't have rv access.

This was after our sales rep had told us multiple times that there was rv access at this site. We tried to cancel that day. They told us in order to cancel we had to talk to the sales rep. Sales rep said he would have it cancelled that day.

I asked him what paperwork I needed to sign and he told me it was not nesessary as it was just a trial offer. The next month we had $270 deducted out of my account. called and was told nothing was ever done by the rep. Completely lied to.

No refund offered. They wont let me use the "product" just a complete scam. Even the free stuff isn't free.

send them money to hold the reservation and they keep it and tell you there are no available dates to use your vacation. HIGH PRESSURE SALE.

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 went to the presentation to the one in Tyler Texas yesterday, March 12, 2012. Looks like you posted this less than a month ago.

We were shown rv hook-ups on our tour of the grounds. There were at least 3 or 4 Rv's out there. BUT I did ask about their "sampler" and we were told you do not get to chose when you go out for the first yr I think it was. You could only go when they called and offered you weekends and then they would nly be calling you like 2 weeks in advance, which was not enough advance notice for us.

They told us that after that first year we would get a week stay at ne of their resorts.

But spending $1000 and probably not being able to use any of the weekends was not worth it. If we lived closer to a resort maybe it would have been different because they said we could use the grounds at anytime.
