      I hope this is true. Have been duped by Wyndham before and again they tried to push buying more to get their new programs. Our maintenance rates are going up and we own 2 time shares. They said they are fazing out our type of ownership. They tried to push us to spend $48,000.00 to $100,000.00.
      We got up and left!

        In life, I’ve learned that anyone can say anything to make it sound good & make a sale. But, if it is not in writing, most likely it’s a lie. So, ALWAYS make sure whatever was said is also in writing or walk away. You’ll be glad you did.

        Me too! Do you have a bi-annual ownership? Do you see what is going on now? Wyndham rolled out a new website months ago – go to their club Wyndham Facebook site! Holy cow! After months since the rollout, owners cannot get on to book reservations & there are too many to count complaints that the owners who can log on say there is nothing available at any resorts!!! Or, they cannot see their points, etc. I paid my ownership in full years ago and I am one of the owners that cannot even log into their website after speaking to a service rep a month ago! Judging by the enormous amount of complaints on just that one post -and there are more that I haven’t read yet – it seems there are hundreds of “owners” that cannot book vacations, even at their home resorts! Wyndham got their/our money and it seems they aren’t delivering on owners being able to book vacations. This isn’t a website glitch. When you read the complaints, there is a pattern. Those who can log in click to book and it spins but doesn’t go through….or it says it isn’t available after they submit to book an alleged available unit…in the end, it is the same…most cannot book. One person is a Presidential member….1 million points & says he cannot find anything available. The rest of us lower point owners….well, I cannot get into the website for months now. So no booking vacations, discount hotels, nothing. My account exists, I can change my password, but not log in. So, i am pretty screwed. Looks like Wyndham upped it’s game from defrauding the elderly to now all their owners. Club Wyndham page FB. Start at May 31st at 9:55am post and the next post to see what’s going on. It’s terrible.

          I am VERY unhappy with Wyndham for all of the above reasons. We are Platinum owners and are literally screwed with getting our 50% off of reservations. According to this new policy we have lost about half of our bonus points. Would love to be involved with a new class action suit against them. My husband and I are in our 80s. It’s no longer just the elderly they are taking advantage of but all owners.

        I didn’t leave, I got pressure and bought. They said an hour presentation for two reduced priced Lego Land tickets and we were there for more than 4 hours. Now we are in debt again, for over $12,000.00. I told them I was not comfortable and they kept reeling me in. I am so mad at myself. They knew I didn’t want to do it. Our payments went up and our dues went up. I don’t know if I have any recourse.
        Thanks.

      This happened to us! When we told salesman Romy, in San Antonio, that because we are on a fixd income, we didn’t have the $10,000.00 down payment, he crossed it off our calculation sheet and said “how bout if i tell you you don’t have to pay it”. (We had already told him how much we could afford) BELIEVING his final calculations, we bought. When we got home we find out the $99.00 A YEAR maintenance fee is actually MONTHLY and the $10,000.00 down payment had been put on two wyndham rewards cards – MAXED OUT! Tried to fight it with wyndham and got told “your word against his”.

      There’s so much to write about Wyndham timeshares. My father passed away over two years ago. He spent almost $75k on his Wyndham timeshare with $256 monthly maintenance fees. He also spent over $45k to various scammers who promised to sell it.

      As other people have mentioned, units are almost impossible to reserve unless you book a minimum 10 months out. Selection of locations is mediocre at best. There is such a lack of good faith and transparency that I wouldn’t be surprised to learn Wyndham has a subversive reservation mechanism that enables them to book non-owners so they can double dip, earning more ill-gotten profit at the expense of owners.

      Another great Wyndham offer (sarcasm if you didn’t pick up) is via their “Ovation” department. They will allow exiting the timeshare for a $299 fee with zero return of money paid. That is, of course, if you can get through to the department. Last call I made to 888-752-1362 had more than a 30-minute wait. An e-mail to wvrovation@wyn.com can take a week for them to respond.

      Attorney Generals in all states have received tens of thousands of complaints over many years regarding the crooked practices of various timeshare outfits such as Wyndham and third-party scammers. Why they sit idly by and allow people, particularly seniors, to continually get ripped off without shutting them down is a joke.

        My father passed away five months ago and I cannot get them to process anything. It was implied that I was responsible for the maintenance fees if I wanted to give back the timeshare through Ovation. Any suggestions? I know it’s illegal to tell someone they are responsible for their parents debts.

    As a Wyndham Customer, I am thrilled that Wyndham has to cough up $20 million. I certainly hope that, as a part of the settlement, Wyndham has to have have clients write out that NO PROMISES, GUARANTEES or UNSPECIFIED INCENTIVES, were made at any time during this sales presentation.

    We were one of those to attend their sales pitch in exchange for a miserable $100.00 attendance fee. Their sales rep in one of the resort in Oregon, was extremely aggressive and threatening. We did not buy into her sales garbage and walked out without collecting the $100.00 promised.

    I wish I had known about this law suit because I am one of the many senior citizens that was given a Barclay Wyndham rewards card, that l never signed an application for. I asked Barclay to send me a copy of the original cc applications. They sent me four (4) apps. and none had my signature on them but were applied for by Wyndham. Barclay told me that by paying the bills indicated that I had agreed to accept them. I was on vacation in Myrtle Beach each time being pressured for hours to upgrade, upgrade, buy more points. When I got home the loan payment and the maintaince fees were on the card month after month, $669.++. I am a 75 year old widow and could only pay them $300. per month. My pleas to Wyndham fell on uncaring ears. I had Barclay stop Wyndham from putting any more on that card and stopped my auto-pay, the card balance was $10,500. There “hardship” papers are a joke, you have to be half or almost dead to get hardship concideration. The released me from my contract telling me to tell no one. Yeah! I was left with the huge debt to pay off as a “third party debt”. Do I want Wyndham to die, YES. Is there a way I can get out of this Wyndham snake trap? I have got nothing for the 605,000 points I had in Access. I still owe Barclay $9,465.69, total interest charged in 2016 was $942.99. Do I want them to burn? Yes

      I keep reading comment after comment on blogs from
      angry, disgrulted, swindled Wyndham timeshare owners who are eager to initiate or join a class action lawsuit against Wyndham for their criminal actions. Count me among the recently swindled. Yet nobody takes action. I can’t even find an attorney who will listen to my story, let alone accept the case. Surely there is an attorney or two or three among the angry Wyndham owners who would feel empowered and willing to start a class action lawsuit? Contact me! I will join!

        I am interested in joining in on the class action lawsuit! My husband and I purchased ownership back in 1998, paid the entire $16k over several years. These past couple of years, we went thru a financial hardship and unable to keep up with the maintenance dues. We figured we just weren’t able to use the timeshare during that time. We recently acquired funds to become debt free through my 401k. When I tried to inquire about the balance owed to catch up in the fees, I was told they cancelled our membership on 05/28/17. I feel at a loss and don’t know what legal rights I have or how to fight for what’s mine. I paid for it, how can they just take it away?

    I used to work for Wyndham in the collections department before I ran afoul of their duplicitous ways myself. I used to hear older people talk about how they were lied to over and over again and given lines of credit for their down payment that they were not aware existed until they started getting calls from that credit provider. Whenever I brought this up I would be told we can’t discriminate against older people and not sell to them. What a crock. This is wonderful to hear and as someone who was there for a period while this case was going on I can tell you that they are shaking in their shoes and now are bleeding money left and right. Good job and good riddance!

      I would be very interested to hear your opinion on why you think Ovation is a scam. We have just gone through being solicited by a former Wyndham employee who is starting a company to help us unfortunate suckers out of our contracts by charging us several thousand dollars to end our contracts. I called into Wyndham and asked if we qualified for the Ovation exit program and they told us that they would buy back our timeshare for about $3500. That really seems quite reasonable since we bought the thing 24 years ago and probably paid about $8K for it and have gotten plenty of use from it. But if we’re being suckered again into something that is a scam, please enlighten us. Thanks.

        Thanks! from one sucker to another for the Ovation info. I did not know about this. I will check it out.
        At the time we bought our timeshare we were told that ALL timeshares were handicap accessible (power wheel chair) well they are not, and after TRYING to use them 2 times decided it wasn’t worth the danger of falling not to mention IF you were even able to get a so called “handicap” unit; as I found out a lot of the “handicap” units had views which are in high demand, and those were the first to be reserved by people without need of an ADA room. Thanks to all these folks that publicized their issues with Worldmark, I feel heard at least by someone, and I am not alone; as my complaints have been falling on the deaf ears of Worldmark for about 16 years now

      Ovation allows you to return in your timeshare to the company,provided it is paid off, at no charge. In return you are allowed to continue to make reservations for a period of three years without being charged maintenance fees. At the end of three years you are out.

        Is Ovation for real? We are part of Club Wyndham Access and want to get out. When I spoke with a Wyndham representative yesterday (Saturday), she mentioned Ovation, but they are only open Monday through Friday, so I haven’t been able to contact them yet. She also said that Ovation would help us “ease out” of the contract; though, she didn’t explain what “ease out” means. We have paid off our account, so if your message is accurate, this would be good news; the first we’ve had in a long time.

    I feel wronged by Wyndham also… they told us when we upgraded back in 2009 that we would be “locked in” as VIP Members for upgrading to VIP level. Last year we went on vacation and was talked into adding more points up to what I could afford just to temporarily keep my VIP status until we could add more points with in a year to maintain sufficient points to stay VIP. Well do to reduced business I was unable to upgrade… this corporation is crooked.. I want out and I want my money back….. at least most of it… since I have hardly used it!

    My senior who cannot see was sold fraudulent Las Vegas timeshare told any date with extra weeks at RCI and he could easily rent his weeks. Sales woman removed his bank debit card to move money from his trust account to account she took down payment from. Then she signed him up for auto payments on that account without providing any documents to him. Over drew his checking account since he wasn’t told. He stated he needed to speak by phone to his hired senior caregiver to discuss buying and saleswoman refused to allow him a phone call. Fraud and elder abuse charges will be brought against this company because saleswoman lied to my disabled senior. No way can my senior ever use a timeshare in Las Vegas for 6 weeks when he needs help for all activities and cannot drive or reason critically. His daughters also abused him by taking his possessions then leaving him to die in his home. As a trained senior caregiver luckily I discovered the abuse and stopped it. Slam dunk case for elder fraud and abuse and state and Feds should prevent any sales to any senior or disabled person until an attorney can advise the senior.

    I have a timeshare there! And wish I never bought it! The sales people are horrible. I refused to buy more credits multiple times and every time not only do I get told that I will never reach my goal to travel the world if I don’t buy more but that I have waisted their time, that they will not show me how to rent out my un used credits. Just plain out pressure and humiliateing saleing tactics. Shame on them! I really would love to sale it and never buy again.

    For 24 years I have owned a “Deeded Timeshare Week” at what is Wyndam West Winds Myrtle Beach as well as two other Deeded Timeshares” elsewhere.

    When we check-in we tell the desk NO SALES CALLS, no, we do not want a welcome basket or any other so-called perk. Just let us vacation in peace. That is the whole key to not exposing yourself to these cockroaches. If I solicit YOU… then I want something. But you CANNOT solicit me under any circumstances– ever.

    They’ve been told.. no rewards-no Wyndam credit cards.. in short… I just use my weeks. They may not like it.. but that is the way it is. Ignore them long enough and they learn to stay away.:}

    When we bought in April 2014 because I felt so much pressure to buy. We were told we could rent it out with no problem, make tons of money doing to, etc. We were even take to a balcony area where there was no one around by the sales man. He told us all the ways of making money using it. My husband and I used their credit company.
    My husband died the following October 2014. I contacted Wyndham asking if they would purchase it back as I really didn’t need to spend what monies I had paying on it. They said they could not.
    I have gone to one sales pitch since then because I could get a $100 gift card. They really put the pressure on for me to buy more points but I refused by calling a money advisor friend and having him say I didn’t need to spend money that way. When we hung up, the salesperson starting telling me that my advisor didn’t know what a great deal it was, etc.
    I left the room because the salesperson acted like they knew more than a person with a degree in financial investments!

    I have loved my Wyndham Platinum ownership and spend the time to learn how to maximize what I’ve invested over the past 25 years as we built up our timeshare. But just last month they rolled out the NEW WEBSITE and have seriously damaged my ownership to the point that I am seriously looking to return it to the using my Pathways with 30 day option. We have listened to so many tall tales at the updates over the years and mostly resisted buying except where we wanted to update. But the newest changes have wiped out our love of Wyndham and I am disgusted with the difficulty in trying to book and inability to rebook since they rolled out the new website. It really really is a piece of crap. You can’t accomplish anything online and now it takes over an hour on hold to reach a live party on the VIP phone lines.

    FIRST OF ALL I HOPE THIS IS NOT A SCAM….
    Arrived in Hawaii on 30 June 2017 and was told that we need to attend an ownership update. (We were also told that we are SILVER OWNERS, I checked our cards when we got to our room and they say GOLD OWNERS.). I said to them is this a “Sales pitch” no, it is to update you…I said how long is it? I am not spending our vacation to listen to some “update as you say” oh, it is only 45 minutes. By the way, when you read their little pink paper that you signed to attend the 45 minute update, it is a THREAT…IT STATES IF YOU DO NOT ATTEND WYNDHAM CAN CHARGE YOU THE FULLRETAIL VALUE OF THE ITEM(s)RECEIVED. I have the paperwork. When the salesperson showed us some paperwork, my wife asked for a copy of what he was talking from, and he said, “I CAN’T IT IS PROPRIETARY, MY WIFE SAID OUR NAME IS ON THAT PAPERWORK, SO IF IT IS PROPRIETARY IT IS OURS….

    CLASS ACTION LAWSUIT AGAINST WYNDHAM LET ME KNOW WHEN…….

    I too have been lied to by a Wyndham salesman. I recently told the him that I had a financial hardship and could not afford the timeshare. Don’t worry about it, I will take care of this he says. Wyndham doesn’t want anyone to know but I can defer your payment until October. That will give you time to get another job and build up your bank account. Your payment will go down to $600.00. Before I left the resort, I tried to cancel, he wouldn’t let me. He told me to call him the end of June and the 6th of July. Guess what the telephone number he gave me goes to a generic voicemail. Wyndham has problem. It has to stop. I can’t afford this timeshare. It is time for a lawsuit. Owners need to get together and file.

    We were also lied to outright. We were RCI points owners who attended a Wyndham owners meeting. They convinced us how much better their system would be if we bought time and combined it with our RCI time into their “Pic Points” System. What the salesman failed to tell us was that this only applied to RCI weeks accounts NOT points accounts like ours. They would not refund our money but rather made us pay additional money to convert our RCI points unit into a weeks unit. That was the only solution they gave us, otherwise I would have been left with two time chunks in two separate systems. Of course, they “gave” us one of those stupid throw away week vacations which we could never take to “compensate” us for our troubles. If we had any idea how little these units go for on the resale market and how complicated it is to actually use your time for vacation, we never would have shelled out our hard earned savings….and to be lied to on top of it all makes me even madder. Please notify me if a class action lawsuit is initiated.

    hello all , i orignally posted back in may, regarding class action against wyndham. i have since been in contact with a law firm in fl. who has been involved with several lawsuits against wyndham. they feel the case we have against wyndham, and the new policies, is pretty promising. the ultimate outcome would be to end our relationship with wyndham and receive financial compensation, which they feel could be substantial. They are willing to take the case on contingency , as they feel a large amount of money will be recovered.
    i have no prior relationship with the firm or any employees of the firm. I am just a wyndham owner since their Fairfield days back in the 1980s , and finally have reached my limits with them.
    if anyone is interested, or needs more information, please feel free to contact me.
    thanks,
    mike

    I too believed what they said. A friend and I are into trying to cancel time share from wyndam. It is two months old. Made a big mistake. They never touched that it costs a hundred dollars a guest. I can’t get to anyone to help me. Transfered from one person to an other. All I want to do is get out. We have not paid that much on it. Should be easy to just cancel this.
    I did not sign into the Hotel California, so I thought. Just let us leave.

    Our salesman, when confronted with Wyndham’s Kafkesque bait and switch, flash and mirrors labyrinth of alternative truths and changes of policy, in a moment of transparency, compared his corporation (which he works for) to a spider who lures you onto its web, ensnares you, and then eats you.

    I just read today after signing yesterday. Didn’t get a chance to think and research just now. I was told I have 10 days to cancel but I don’t know what number to call. Please help.

      Hi Nicole,
      When signing up did you have to sign forms to agree to the time share

    I wish we would have done more research before signing our contract. It appears that on every vacation they want us to sign a new contract for more points. We have been aggressively paying on our ownership and now we only have a few more payments left they want us to upgrade.. I see people getting out of their contracts due to increase in maintenance fees but what about all of the money we have spent. Also, the companies that claim to help you sell want you to pay a fee as well!! Everyone appears to be scamming!!!!

    I’ve had the same issues as those above. Please, if there’s any way to get out of this timeshare, please let me know. I’m willing to leave it with nothing in return, just doing want to deal with all the problems that come with this. It was hard not to get into additional points when they not only sugar coat, but you have these big guys standing behind and you feel intimidated.

    Going to yet another “owner update” tomorrow at the San Francisco worldmark. A promise of no sales presentation and only one hour. 😂 I’ll have this article cued up if things get ugly.

    Would love to be included in knowing how to get out of Wyndham timeshare. I also was told that buying my points would be better for me in the long run then remaining with what I already had. I tried to explain to them that I had no immediate family members to leave the timeshare with in the future. I’m single, never married, never had children, living on retirement and take turns taking care of my elderly parents. I told them my situation in order to get out of there. I was told it would be easy to get out of it by using their Oviation in the website. I also had the same situation as Ron above in regards to the sale person not allowing me to keep the paperwork he was showing me during his sells pitch, because he would get in trouble with Wyndham if he did. I tried getting out of there, but when you have people in and around you that look like bodyguards, it get intimidating. Please, with there is a lawsuit going on to release individuals from their timeshare, I would truly appreciate being put on the list. At this point, I’m willing to lose what I have already put into the timeshare without any compensation, just don’t care for individuals to lie to you to get what they want.
