Timeshare Relief Agencies in SW Missouri Aren’t Playing Fair

Similar to other vacation destinations across America, timesharing has a stronghold in Southwest Missouri. But the general public is beginning notice the level of deception going on behind the scenes. As the timeshare sales market dwindles (due to improved travel options), the region has turned into a hotbed for timeshare relief agencies. It’s safe to assume a majority of these “cancellation firms” used to sell fractional ownership.

Bluegreen and Bass Pro Settle for $40 Million After Owners File Lawsuit

For nearly 20 years, Bass Pro Shops has allowed Bluegreen to sell fractional ownership in their stores. The agreement gave customers store discounts and other promotional items if they attended Bluegreen timeshare presentations. From 2016-2018, nearly 15% of Bluegreen’s revenue came from the retailer. It’s why they were so willing to pay Bass Pro $40 million to settle their differences.

Deceiving Resort Fees Causes DC Attorney General to Sue Marriott

When you think about it, a lot of time and effort goes into planning a vacation. Once travelers make a decision on a hotel, most don’t want to start over – even after seeing there are additional costs from the resort. “Discovering these charges only after a consumer has started to book a room makes it extremely difficult to compare prices and make informed choices,” said DC’s Attorney General.
