While on vacation in punta cana, dominican republic . Me and my husband were walking the beach when we meet a guy name pedro who invited us to visit

A new resort (royalton). The place was beautiful and he invited us to get information In case we wanted to visited the property on our future vacation. 

After signing to receive this information tour which they said

Would take 90 minutes. They introduced us to Tommy the person who would show us everything.  Tommy was the first person we meet, up to this point that spoke good English. After telling us about himself and what his company was. I quickly realize this was not a tour of only the resort but 

This travelsmart that he was telling me about was a vip club of some sort 

If I joine I get half price vacations and vip benefits by using their smart points. 

This guy was convincing and by the time he showed us the beautiful members area where the room had swim up pools and ocean view

Butler services. All this is mine with the smart points. wow! I was sold 

And we spent almost 3 hours with Tommy's boss negotiating

We were told this is our only operunity to get the membership, now or never

So we bought a seven  thousand dollar program,  down from the fifty thousand dollar price tag he opened with....

When we got home and check the members Web site I only notice a

3 or 4 dollar difference between the travelsmart members page 

And the public online travel pages! not the big saving the guy promised. 

Next day I tried to call the customer service number they provided,

I almost had a heart attack with every ring when I got no answer!

Wrote a thousand emails with no answer!!! It's been months now!!

At the end we were sweet talk out of seven thousand dollars

Imagine if we had bought that 50000$ plan we would of been screwed!

Be careful be safe and be smart! Don't fall for this b.s. vip stuff they sell you its a modern timeshare vip club scam for the unsuspecting fools who trust anyone like me and my husband did... 

 

Blessing to everyone

And don't be fool by this travelsmart /smart points crap

If you did buy it try to get your money back right now

Or you will be shocked like we were.....

Once you leave that county because it's impossible to 

Communicate with them from home.

Timeshare Scam

AUTHOR: margaretsims90 - (USA)

POSTED: Tuesday, March 10, 2015

Thousands of International travelers, particularly from the US and Canada, have fallen victims of timeshare fraud while vacationing. Resort developers hire skilled salesmen to represent their timeshares as many different attractive packages, such as financial investments, deeded properties, or vacation clubs, just to increase their sales.
