Bullying Techniques of Timeshare Sales Reps

Bullying – you hear a great deal about it today, especially in schools. In fact, did you know the government hosts a “Stop Bullying” website? On that site, they define bullying as that behavior relates to children:

Bullying is unwanted, aggressive behavior among school-aged children that involves a real or perceived power imbalance. The behavior is repeated, or has the potential to be repeated, over time. Both kids who are bullied and who bully others may have serious, lasting problems.

So, what do timeshares have to do with bullying? As it happens, a great deal.

Just as the government seeks to make us aware of the damaging effects of bullying on vulnerable children, our law firm seeks relief for those consumers who have been bullied into signing timeshare contracts that they desperately want to cancel. No, we are not alone in that objective. Federal, state and local authorities increasingly are battling fraudulent and abusive practices as more and more abuses of consumers take place in the timeshare marketplace.

What are the bullying tactics of many timeshare sales operations?

Just as with childhood bullying, timeshare sales operations engage in aggressive, repetitive and sometimes demeaning behavior. First, they entice you with a free resort stay or attraction tickets if you attend their timeshare presentation. Then, you find yourself in a prolonged, high-pressure sales environment that extends well beyond the promised “90-minute presentation.”

Sales representatives tag team you to secure your signature on the “bottom line.” If you say no to the first, a second and third salesperson enter the scene. All too frequently, those skilled folks take on a demeaning attitude about your lack of investment knowledge, your apparent lack of understanding of the value of family vacations or even your gratitude for the enticements they have offered.

It’s hardly surprising that many weary consumers yield to the pressure and sign page after page of mostly unread documents to purchase timeshare points. Only later do they understand the lifetime burden they have taken on and the timeshare headaches that lay ahead.
