Pressured into purchasing points from Shell Vacations club now owned by Wyndam.Timeshare continues to sell worthless points yet will not refund my initial purchase.
In May 2008, my girlfriend and I purchased 1,500 points from Shell Vacations Club West, now owned and operated by Wyndam Vacations.
Even sitting down for this meeting was a bad idea. I felt pressured by the sales staff to purchase points in order to show my girlfriend I cared. A majority of the time, the sales presentation focused on the vacation desires of my girlfriend and very little on the financial impact it would have on us. It was a fast-paced, high pressure environment where I felt cornered to purchase points.
We have finally finished paying off our points ($14,808.71 Principal + Interest) ($9360 Loan, $1010.90 deposit). It has been a severe financial burden the entire time we have been owners. I finally became financially educated and determined that this purchase made absolutely no financial sense for us. I contacted Shell for a refund multiple times and have been run in circles, each time getting nowhere.
As a consumer I feel taken advantage of. They recently offered to cancel my membership but that does nothing for the $14,808.71 that has seemingly been flushed down the toilet.
I would really like Wyndam to refund my money and urge them to change the way the sell their timeshares.Urging a young couple who just started dating to purchase $14,000 in vacation time is a recipe for disaster.

The most disappointing in user's experience was being lied to when i joined, being scammed and being pressured into buying. Author liked the most quality of the timeshare properties. The author asks this business to immediately contact him/ her to briefly discuss his/ her negative experience with the company.
