This May in Branson MO we were lured under false pretences expecting an update on our RCI time share exchange program, only to be subjected to a rude, high pressure pitch for Fairfield Resorts( soon to be Wyndam Resorts), timeshare. All three are brands are owned by Cendant.
In June we found $11.99 monthly charges from both Shoppers and Travelers Avantage on my CC going back several months. I decided to Googles those names for more info, clicked onRip-off Reports, and only then did I discover that Cendant ownes all of the companys above plus many more that are household brand names in the travel and lodging industry
It is terrible to see Cendant debase these brands by choosing a business strategy that forces them to mislead and intimidate their customer base for short-term gains.
Worse yet is the practice of placing unauthorized, or under- autherized charges on anyones CC. This process is now known as"cramming" and I think CC companies should develope a method to stop it.
Cendant Corp lists itself in the top quarter of America's Fortune500. If true, it is another sad commentary on the state of our country's business ethics. However, Cendant's stock price on theNYSE has dropped over 25% in the past 12 months. Maybe the shareholders are wising up.
