Wyndham/TrendWest used a product called "Travel Share adn Fun Time" to induce people to purchase the "credits/timeshare" they sell to the general public.  This product was NEVER approved by the California Deparment of Real Estate and was therefore illegal in California.  This product provided for indiviudals that became owners to book a product called "Bonus Time"  well in advance of the 250,000 to 300,000 owners that purchased prior to this product being offered to new owners.

This product affects the resale value of the previous 250,000 to 300,000 owners and further made it quite difficult to secure reservations at WorldMark Resorts which is the product name of the timeshare product that TrendWest which is now Wyndham Resorts now sells.

Therefore the only fair solution to this class action suit is for all owners that were p;rovided with this incentive to purchase to lose that benefit as the previous purchasers/owners are being discriminted against and placed in a position of non usage of the credits they purchased that provided the "BONUS TIME" beneift.

Furrther, NO company should be allowed to benefit from the sale of any ILLEGAL product or service or any product that the company is not authorized to sell or provide to their customers.  IF THE onwers of the :Travel Share & Fun Time" product feel this is unfair then Wyndham/TrendWest should be REQUIRED TO refund all monies that the owners paid for this illegal product/sale.  This should include all maintenance fees, interest payment if they are paying on a loan, downpayment and any and all related cost that they as owners have incurred. 

The COMPANY-TrendWest/Syndham should be punished and this is one manner in which they should be punished as they new full well that what they were doing was illegal and unjust.  Especially as it violated the prior contracts of the 250,000 to 300,000 or more owners that purchased without this benefit.  AGAIN NOTE NOBODY PAID ANY ADDITIONAL FUNDS FOR THIS BENEFIT, it was stricly a marketing tool or a closing tool to induce indiviauls to purchase on their FIRST VISIT OR to ungrade and purchase another 10,000 credits from the ungrade department.

OPT OUT OF THE Settlement

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

The settlement is unfair.  It just removes 10% of the inventory for a credit reduction  of 2% at a few
over priced resorts.  The settlement is far worse than what we had. Say good by to Bonus time.
Please send this letter to Gerhart Gebbs class action attorneys.

To: Jonathan Levine or Elizabeth Pritzker
Girard Gibbs LLP
601 California Street, Suite 1400
San Francisco, CA 94108

Re: Wixon v. Wyndham, Case No. C 07-02361 JSW (BZ)

INSERT YOUR NAME HERE (both names if two owners)

I am respectfully asking to be excluded from this settlement.

To Whom It May Concern:

I wish to be excluded from the settlement because I do NOT think it is
in the best interest of the owners. I think relative use value is too
important a concept for preserving owner value and this settlement does
nothing to enforce the concept both as I read it in the declaration and
as it was sold to me.

I bought this timeshare for the long term value it offered me, with the
intent to leave it to my children. Anything other than adherence to
relative use value will nullify the long term value of my purchaseand I
wouldnt have bought it.

I am truly sorry that the current economy does not support Wyndhams
ability to make the type of profit that they might want or needbut that
is not my problem. There are many developers who have gone under or
dissolved their businesses because it is simply not supportable for them
to continue. Marriott is getting out of timeshares because its just
not working for them anymore. Wyndham should not be allowed to continue
their venture at the expense of owners and in defiance of our documents
simply because they dont want to admit that this particular boat has
sailed. Its not the fault of the owners that perhaps they shouldnt
have purchased Trendwest without looking at their legal options for

This settlement is not representative of my voice, nor do I feel that it
addresses Wyndhams improprieties with regard to WorldMark development.
As it stands, it would give Wyndham the ability to nullify the long
term value of my purchase, and that is something I simply cant support.
