BEWARE! I read this warning from others too late. But I fear there are hundreds of unsuspecting tourists in Charleston who will fall into the same trap. The salesmen and women in this outfit are predators. They are looking for people who would like to be able to travel more than they really can afford to do. And most people who are exploring Charleston fit that category.
I agree with all the other victims who have reported that the promises are very misleading. The hotels that they include in their database are not the dream destinations that they promote in their visual presentation. The resorts they include are not the 5-Star Luxury locations that they suggest you can visit with unbelievably low weekly fees. It is unbelievable because it is not REAL. I have not researched any locations outside of the US, but all the US "resorts" that I have researched have limited amenities, and some are just bare-bones lodging facilities. [continued below]....
..... No one needs a travel membership to find deals for these locations.
The contact number for the concierge service provided on the Wholesale Escape website only proved to us that we had been scammed. I called once to inquire about how to use navigate the reservation process online. The female who answered the phone was very pleasant, but she said that there was no record of our account in her system. I called almost two months after we had been successfully beguiled.
I know there is no recourse, because they design a very crafty membership license that asks the buyer to release all rights to question his judgment after the date of sale. We really should have had better discernment on that fateful day. But since we didn't, we want to warn all who have ears to hear and eyes to see!
