Their family recently discovered that their parents gave in to pressures from Bluegreen Vacations timeshare sales representatives. Badgering the elderly is not okay! Between 2014 and 2017, Bluegreen Vacations convinced them to sign five different contracts for timeshares in presentations lasting up to four hours.  Sales reps claimed timeshares were financial investments and could be rented...
