"..... Universal Timeshare called and said they had a buyer for my Wyndham Bali Hai timeshare and were offering $24,600.00. It would cost me $1800.00 in fees but I would be rid of it and the annual maintenance fees. I asked for a callback number so I could verify the information, I called back and was told the same information. I gave my credit card number. Several days later I received paperwork to sign, which I did (although apparently I did not understand what it said). Upon telling my daughter about my fantastic transaction, she went to her computer and checked them out and found they were a scam company and the State of Oregon had litigation against them. I did call Universal Timeshare back and told them I wanted a refund to my credit card and they refused. I sent the paperwork I had received to my daughter to look over (I am 89 yrs old) and the papers say they will "present" the property for "showing" purposes and forward any potential purchaser information to me to follow up on. I have notified my credit card company but it appears I am probably bamboozled out of $1800.00 plus $14.60 international transaction fee they also charged to my credit card which they did not tell me about. I have also registered a complaint with Wyndham, the State of Oregon and the Better Business Bureau...."
