We used our time share to go to Puerto Vallarto, Mexico, and made the mistake of agreeing to listen to a presentation. When we didn't buy a time share, we were supposedly being taken to get our prize. Instead, they took us to ANOTHER presentation for Gold Crown. The pitch was that we would save tons of money on vacation travel and since we're close to retirement, travel time would be in abundance. So, we paid over $3,500 for a membership (FOOLS!). When we returned home and received all the info two weeks later via e-mail, we found that they didn't have that good a selection and that we could book directly with hotels, etc. for the same price or less.

However, when we asked for our money back, Gold Crown said that they don't get the money. It goes to the resort in Mexico who likewise would not return the money. So, a year and half later, still no bookings, still no savings and we are out the $3,500. I filed a report with Florida State to complain about their business practices but received no reply. These people are the worst kind of crooks.

Gold Crown ripoff

AUTHOR: Abc123 - (U.S.A.)

King--we have very similar experience. Wish we would have never stepped foot on Paradise Village--smelled funny, but fell for it anyway. Representation of what you get with the membership is totally misrepresented. Is there a way can talk?

Facinating that suddenly we have a "code of conduct" on a membership that cost us thousands of dollars for no benefit that we can identify. A membership which we no longer can use--despite our 99-year guaranteed membership, or at least that's what our paperwork says.
