Wyndham Lawsuits and Legal Actions

Following are several links to Wyndham-related lawsuits on behalf of owners.  Many of these are against Wyndham’s other brands or subsidiaries (Trendwest, WorldMark, RCI, etc.):

Here is a link to the RCI Class Action Settlement Agreement, dated Nov 21, 2008, which finds Wyndham subsidiary company, RCI, to have used timeshares deposited with them for exchange, and rented them to the public without knowledge or approval of owners.  Said deposits were rented to the public for Wyndham’s own corporate benefit and once removed from inventory, were no longer available for other owners to receive in exchange.

Here is a link to a Dec 10, 2008 finding against Wyndham to allow Worldmark (another Wyndham membership program, similar to FairShare) owners’ access to the email addresses so proxies may be sent to owners to try and overthrow their Wyndham-controlled Board of Directors.  It is item 8 in the list.  Also notice the part where the Board of Directors tried to amend their bylaws to disallow this, even while the complaint and petition were pending!

Here is a link to the pending class action suit against Wyndham for monopolizing the Board of Directors of WorldMark and devaluing their ownership.  This is a different membership program than FairShare, but the premises of the class action are very similar.

Actually, the website http://whatswrongwithwyndham.com has much more information about the Worldmark class action suit and should prove helpful in understanding how Wyndham is trying to use their corporate relationships to manipulate the various organizations they are entrusted to manage.

Here's another recent example. In December, 2008, the Property Owner's Association at Daytona Beach Ocean Walk, which was managed by Wyndham, filed the largest civil suit in Florida’s history (against Wyndham), again alleging misuse of the resources the were supposed to manage, misuse of funds, and unwillingness to relinquish assets even after being fired as the management company.


Additionally, there are several State Attorney General’s who have taken punitive action on behalf of their constituents against the timeshare industry, mostly for unfair sales and marketing practices.  Here are four examples (one involving Wyndham subsidiary, Worldmark):

California Attorney General Bill Lockyer sues Trendwest (a former Cendant subsidiary).

Missouri Attorney General Jay Nixon sues Branson timeshare developer.  Notice paragraph four, which alleges that specified promised benefits were not delivered.  This is one of the biggest concerns owners have with what Wyndham is doing to their owners.

Here’s another lawsuit filed by Missouri Attorney General Jay Nixon last year – this time against Festiva Resorts.

Pennsylvania Attorney General Tom Corbett announced lawsuits against multiple Florida timeshare companies for deceptive timeshare practices.  Everything Wyndham is currently doing to our ownership would certainly fall under the title of “deceptive” (or worse).

    1. Sharon, what happened to your timeshare now? We were victimized by this company.

    2. Sharon, if everyone stop paying the vultures, then they would clean up their act. Their bottom line is charging you outrageous imterest rates and a long term contract. 15% interest for 15 years is robbery, mame withheld because of current litigation with Wyndham Resorts.

I have sent cease and desist letters and still get at least 2 recorded messages every day! They used unfair sales practices, were deceptive and now I have a loan for 19.99% and am in debt over $96,000. I am battling breast cancer, huge stress, and husband has recently been diagnosed with cancer, too. We can't afford the "emperors' new clothes" HELP ME PLEASE

    5. I got fucked by these cunts. They told me they were setting up something to lower my monthly payments. Instead, they set me up so I'm paying twice a fucking month and have a credit card balance that they charged me to set up the second payment. These motherfuckers should be fucking put out of business.

    10. I'm a wyndham owner and former timeshare salesperson in south Florida.I can confirm that Wyndham is a criminal organization that teaches it's employees to deliberately confuse and misleadv you into buying at these presentations.
      If you really don"t want timeshare DO NOT go to the presentation and DO NOT just go and waste hours of your vacation for the stupid gift.Here"s 2 ways to own timeshare which in its simplest form is a great product and money saver VS hundreds of dollars per night for a tiny hotel room.
      1) Go on EBAY,Craigs List,Etc and buy the timeshare resale for pennies on the dollar direct from the owner.You can find 300,000 to 400,000 point packages for hundreds of dollars instead of the tens of thousands of dollars that Wyndham rips you off for. Just be sure to call Wyndham and make sure to get an Estoppell letter showing that all money owed,maintenance etc is up to date,and the deed is clear before you buy.Don"t listen to their bullshit that you won"t qualify for VIP benefits,as you usually won't need them anyway.
      Or buy 2 deeded RCI weeks the same way,from the owner .Preferrably 3br red weeks as these are most valuable.
      Then use Wyndham"s PIC Program to turn these weeks into Wyndham points on a yearly optional basis.You need to purchase some Wyndham points to do this but for a purchase of about $12-15K or about 120,000 points you can trade in your 2 -RCI 3br red weeks for 254,000 points each which will give you over 600,000 points and Gold VIP each year.Congratulations !You just beat these assholes and will never need another point! You should break even in about 5 years in which you would have spent the same money anyway.
      Good Luck

  4. I've been a so called owner of a Wyndham time share for about fifteen years.i've only used it four times and I've been paying for that mistake ever since, when you have sales people that will do any thing to make a dollar it doesn't make your company look so good I would and have told people not to fall into the same trap that I fell into, i've gone so far as to try to give it back.but why would this company take it back when they can basically steal from me month by month and year by year

  7. We purchased what we thought were UDI points. We were told upfront they were converted from a fixed week but they were now fixed week points We were assessed a higher than normal assessment because Wyndham UDI points were exempt but fixed converted to UDI were not so we bore the brunt of the burden. Requests for paperwork have been met with stall tactics.

    This is just a bad company. Everyone at Wyndham tells you it is someone else's fault but never do they own up to their actions.

  9. Is there a class action lawsuit that I can take part in currently? I'm so fed up with the way Wyndham treats their fairshare plus owners. I can't reserve at the very resort that I own with owning a prime holiday week. Meanwhile, they rent out to convention visitors, which is then ultimately subsidized by owners like me.

    ReplyDelete
  10. Sorry I am not aware of any ongoing class action suit. There was one that was dropped because Wyndhams lawyers were dragging it out for ever, and the only ones making money were that attorneys. I have helped some of those people get out of their contracts.

    1. Am interested in how you got them out of their contracts.

    2. By gathering complaints, news articles, court records and criminal background checks on the sales people. This is sent to them along with a demand letter stating the owner wants out and their money back or all this will go to various agencies and the news media. We give them 30 days to respond. They don't want a federal investigation and to be on the 6 o'clock news. Of course this only works if you were lied about what you were purchasing. If you bought it, used it for years and just decide you want out it doesn't work. I have also published a step by step DIY book you can order, which will guide you and includes sample letters and what agencies to contact. You can also separately buy hundreds of pages of data I have collected over the years. The address is www.timesharegetout.blogspot.com

    3. We were lied to 2 years ago in Hawaii, even about what we were buying. Tried to get it cleared up when we were in Branson, they could not figure it out. We paid cash and monthly fees and now they tell us buy more points or our points are useless. We have a time share with a different company that has been a delight for years. Wyndham is a mess.

  13. I have been a Worldmark owner since 1999. I did use and enjoy the timeshares. In July 2012 I spent a week at the Indio, CA site. After being harassed to conduct a "survey" for a few minutes I met with a salesman. I am an older single woman and I explained to him that I was unemployed and could not afford nor need any more shares. I told him that I intended to pay off the balance of my contract with savings to save the interest and that was all I could afford. He became very aggressive and brought his manager to sit with us. They both told me that if I would just use the money to upgrade I would be eligible to exchange my share for some high end vacation spots which I could rent out and pay the bill. After hours I signed. A year and $13,000 later, I am still unemployed and have no choice to break my contract, ruining my credit and totally losing all the credits I have paid for all these years. I am just sick.

  16. Wyndham employees commit fraud, misrepresent the product, and basically are scam artists/con artists. With saying this, the entire company is based on fraud and their goal is to scam hard working honest people. I've been a Wyndham owner for approximately four years and had they not have changed their programs, I would be satisfied with "what I thought I had purchased". I am an owner of Club Wyndham Select which was to be so "prestigious" and now I find out that under the new program of Wyndham Access many of my "prestigious" benefits will be an automatic given to Wyndham Access members. I've been lied to, pushed to make another purchase, and then treated poorly once the sales representative/sales manager realizes that I know have a clear understanding on how this company works. Anyone in Club Wyndham Access interested in filing a class action lawsuit? Contact me @ powellbg2003@yahoo.com. It's time to take a stand!

  17. My wife and I got behind on our maintenance fees as we moved from Germany to the U.S. We received a letter stating that we were going to forfeit our timeshare points to them permanently and have no further ownership for being 700 dollars in debt of maintenance fees. We sent a certified letter and they relented, calling and agreeing to allow us to continue ownership but instead had us forfeit our existing credits... They made no mention of us having to forfeit our credits for being in debt with maintenance fees.

    We are now fully paid off with maintenance fees yet lost 12000 credits and when I called asking about it, the person said we lost the credits because we were behind on our maintenance fees and there is nothing that can be done, it was our fault for not paying our bill... Do I have any legal recourse to get my 12000 confiscated points back?

    ReplyDelete
  18. They should have sent you a certified letter stating they intended to permanently take your points, you should be able to either get your points back or demand your money be refunded.

  19. .  I too have a timeshare from them and I feel I was scammed.  I was told it would increase in value (false), I could easily go through my bank to refinance since it was like a regular mortgage (false), I could bank points (was not told it would cost me more money to do so and I have a very short window to do so), was told I could transfer my points to rci to use additional resorts (not informed about the very high additional costs to do so), was given "free" rci stays to use since they took up so many hours of my vacation (not informed these were not free, rci said I had to pay them hundreds of dollars per certificate.  Thats not free).  Was invited to what I was told was a presentation for owners regarding changes to the timeshare, turned out to be a pressuring sales.  It didnt matter how much I said no and wanted to leave, they just added on the pressure until I finally made a purchase with promises to be managers and always available to assist with booking vacations, renting points, etc.  This never happened.  I ended up with emails and calls that went without a response.  Told I could get out of a deed, transfer to another one and.my rates would be lowered, this was not true.  I ended up paying even more, much more.


    > By the time, I returned from.the vacation I was on and tried to reach my "manager" the time ran out to even write the company to get out of this mess.  There were so.many other lies told regarding benefits and the referral program.  Always having to fill out a form and give names of friends and.family for them call.  I hated that part but again, the pressure they put on you (2 -3 people sitting around you in a small corner, makes you feel like small prey). 
    > I know they have contacted people on my referral list and someone made a purchase and/or make a visit but Wyndham never contacted me in any way about that.  No rewards ever given either.

  21. We have an RCI points account, home resort is Georgian Manor in Collingwood Ontario...20,000 pts a year...not much I know...
    Went to DisneyWorld in September 2013 and was talking in to buying 84,000 pts with Wyndham Bonnet Creek. Was also told that for a 1 time cost of $89 our 20,000 pts with Georgian Manor would be converted to 154,000 pts with Wyndham. This would be done annually and we wouldn't have to pay any extra amount, other than the $15,000 US we paid in September...
    Turns out that this is not the case and we cannot convert our RCI Points to Wyndham Points and we are now screwed out of $15,000 US. How do I go about getting the contract we just signed reversed and get my money back? Please help...

  22. I have 500K points from two of the Wyndham in Kauai, one was purchased prior to Wyndham purchasing the management contract and two after because we were not able to use their other services unless we bought more points under their program. These points were purchased with the intention of my wife and I traveling to other destinations outside of Hawaii. Three years ago my wife passed away and I am stuck with points/timeshare that I am not interested in after all "one is the loneliest number", and there is not a market for their product. In fact they cant be given away, you have to pay to pass them on to someone else. They say they have a great product and I have yet to see where their greatness is, I believe they are great in their own eyes only! I recently called in because I received a collection letter stating that I was past due on my account and my monthly maintenance fee is automatically charged by them. Go figure!

  24. Biggest scam yet! When you do a trade, Wyndham directs you to there resorts for vacancies instead of where you want to go. This is their marketing scam to keep Wyndham owners buying more and more useless Wyndham points. You cannot trade in Wyndham and not be pestered about a presentation. Why is it that Wyndham and RCI points are totally different? Just like Worldmark, same thing.Now that they have gobbled up Shell Vacations, what will their system look like? It's not the product, it's the people running the business that are the problem. Old school, the names haven't changed, just the locations of where they are working and the positions that they hold have. People blame the salesperson, ever thought maybe that salesperson has a sales manager? There is an old saying, it starts at the top! Try filing suit against those people holding them personally responsible and see if things change. A corporate Vail is only so thick.

  27. About a little over a year ago I went to see family and just get away from the troubles that was happening in my life. I didn't know my cousin was a Wyndham sales rep and the day I was supposed to drive to LA she took me to her job and wanted to show me all the nice places and just basically tried to butter me up. Not once did I go to a presentation and literally she kept me there almost the whole day. I even told her no its not for me, and called my sister, because I wasn't in a good spot, I was having trouble in my marriage, and dealing with the military, I was having health issues and was in and out of the hospital just before I went there. She took my phone and never gave it back. She made all these promises like it will help my credit, the first payment will be free which it wasn't, if I fall behind the payments is linked to her account, she would even take it for me if I didn't like it, or she'll resell it for me, I'll have equity on it, she told me they would even add to my plan of 86000 points and it will be 300000 and VIP she even told me to make profit and sale this points and that which i know nothing of how to do anyway or have the time. I thought maybe it was good come to find out those extra points once used up wont come back. Because I was military I was getting a good deal even brought other family names into it saying so and so would kill for this deal. I just wanted to get out of there. I didn't even know converting points to rewards or moving them would cost money I was told it would be free. It just wasn't a good time in my life to even think about getting this. After I signed the papers it's like all of a sudden the work was done and she was nowhere to be found. I decided to call them to cancel it but they said I would have to mail it in and by that time it would be too late to cancel without penalties. Apparently I only had a 5 day window which she told me give it 6 months and if you still don't like it don't worry I'll help you. I called my cousin and she said she would send me the paperwork. It was simple I would just sign and I would get what I put down back. When I called her again she said she'll send the paperwork if I sent her money because she had to put like 100 or so in after basically drained me for what I had when I was there and when I said I'll give you some of what I get back so I know it worked and I never heard from her again. Until this day she has ignored me and I think I even have her recorded phone call on my phone saying those things. But I just thought all the lies and she's supposed to be my own family it's just disgusting. I even read you get incentives for going to to the presentation I was told I would get 200 on an American express card and I never did they gave me dinner coupons. Which I never went to the presentation anyway so I don't care but I feel like if I did I would've been more confident on what I was getting myself into.

She was duped. This isn't a real TIMESHARE legally anyway!. We all call it that but there is no tie in into any property.. This is pre paying for hotel rooms for 10 years, NOT A TIMESHARE!!!!!!!!!! We want to walk away from this WITHOUT DINGING HER EXCELLENT CREDIT RATING. Does anyone have a great GO TO person that can shut this BS Contract down WITHOUT it costing her outrageous fees? This whole Timeshare system is really a nightmare with "ambulance chasers" out there that RIP YOU off after the First RIP OFF of buying into the Worldmark Fraud in the first place. How is it that this corporation is still in business???? I have worked in Commercial Real Estate for 8+ years now but even this is new to me. What is your cost JUST TO GET OUT OF CONTRACT?.

    3. These people are terrorist and need to be treated as such! Just my opinion. But we had the same thing happen to us at The Grand Seas Resort in Daytona Beach Florida as I tried to leave they blocked the door and would not let us leave until we signed the papers, and to cover their @$$ they had us initial and sign a statement that said they never said anything that they stated during the presentation. It was like the flashy thing in MIB (you never heard us say any of these things at any time during the presentation. It is all a figment of your imagination. Sign the papers now and we will let you go) Our folly was not really paying attention to what we were signing, so I guess we are just as screwed as most of the people here.

  28. I too have a problem with timeshares. I purchased mine 25 years ago when it was great for vacationing. You could swap it for a fee of course. Now, it's not good enough to exchange somewhere else without throwing in additional weeks so you will have more points, of course it has to be all inclusive and so far I have had no luck exchanging it at all because my resort where I purchased no longer can compete with all the new resorts but you can't exchange it because your unit is not good enough or powerful enough to exchange. So, now I am stuck with it, no one wants it. I have even tried to give it away. I can't exchange it. I have lost so many weeks the past few years from not being able to exchange it. Then of course they will rent it for you, but you don't get any money for it because they say no one rented your unit. Yet, you call them and they say they have no vacancy for that week. All the rules have changed since we purchased our unit and we all should be able to get out of this nightmare without it ruining our credit rating. They are ripping people off left and right and all these wonderful people now buying in, will also see the light when it is too late. These reps will lie, cheat and steal to talk you into this stuff. I suggest we all file a class action lawsuit against these resorts and file against them at the better business bureau. Whatever it takes to get good people out of these things.

  29. Hi,
    We bought a into the whole timeshare spiel in 2001, when I was pregnant. We thought it was a good write off at the time, and with the 2 free Tkts to Kauai that we never got, as well as other "rewards" that we're promised and not delivered, it didn't turn out to be so. We had one week every other year at Pahio Resorts, Kauai Beach Villas. Problem with their great sales pitch, is you still have to have the time off work, the extra cash, and the energy to go. The fees every 2 years were $300, which we paid. Then. After 4 years, they went to $600 every 2 years, and I paid that too. We had already paid the whole timeshare off in 2002 for $10,000, so we were ok. Then, recession hit in 2007, lost our house and 2nd income in 2008. Had health issues, long story, we moved twice, left forwarding addresses, and from 2007 -2014, heard nothing. Now, we are recieving a bunch of legal docs along with about 100 other people in the same boat, wanting maintenance fees yesterday, or they want to foreclose. Just when did the maid fees rise to $1000 every 2 years, and why weren't we ever contacted. Help!

  30. Hi, we purchased a timeshare in 2001. It is located in Kauai, and it' called Kauai Beach Villas at Pahio Resorts. Originally, cleaning fees were $300 every other year. Now, it is almost $1000, which we just found out about within the past few years. We paid over $10,000 overall back in 2002. We continued to pay the maintenance fees. In 2007, it went up to $600, and we paid that too. However, in 2008, we lost our hour due me losing my job. We then moved 2 times, and left forwarding addresses. Trust me, every bill collector on the planet found us except Wyndham? Hmmm. Evidently now, us and a boatload of others are being foreclosed on unless we can cough up back owed cleaning fees? Of, we can just deed it back to them, no harm, no foul. I was just curious if there was any class action suits out there pertaining to this? We haven't heard one peep out of them via mail since. 2007.

  33. Yes this is an all to common strategy of resorts, they don't tell you when buying that this will happen. They originally show you an every year purchase and when that's too expensive they drop to the every other year but fail to tell you your annual dues will still be billed. It enough to get you out of the contract, omissions is a lie.

  34. Please help us. My mom is 83 y/o and Wyndham swindled me and her with their lies. Somehow they put me as the primary owner and take 3 different payments from her checking account every month. Somewhere around $1,000.00. She barely has enough for food, meds. & doctor visits. She's had cancer 3 times and we have to go back for more tests. No one else in our family can afford this. She doesn't want it. I called but they said it was too late. We even went to a meeting, we tried to give it back & they said NO and tried to sell us more points. They are creeps who do not care about the elderly :( We desperately need your help to get out of this situation!

    1. You are right, they don't care about the elderly, they don't care if someone cannot put food on the table. They just want your money. Email me at notimeshare@gmail.com and we will see if something can be done to help your mom

  35. Here is my most recent letter I will be sending on to Wyndham. This is a multiple attempt to get my account canceled. Have not used any points.
    Dear Wyndham, 04/08/14
    I will continue to contact this company due to FALSE information until my account has been CANCELED. IF this messes up my Credit Score I will be pursuing legally.
    2-16-14 flew into Las Vegas. My first time and boyfriends first time there. I and my boyfriend were approached by 2 men at Harrah’s Hotel near the concierge desk. We were directed that we could receive a free breakfast and 1 of the following FREE deals: 2 tickets for free shows, $100 dinner vouchers or a Visa Card if we were to attend a 1 hour seminar on Wyndham. We signed up to do this for 02-17-14 @ 10 a.m.
    2-17-14 we showed up early got checked into the Wyndham Seminar. Was then told that we would do breakfast, seminar and a walk threw one of the locations. We were never told there was a walk through and I wore VERY bad shoes for this LONG walk. We got stuck with an over 4 hour time with Wyndham. This 4 hour block ruined a great majority of our vacation. It took 4 hours due to the Wyndham employees would keep sending us to talk to other people to make a deal. Alyssa was the first one, then her manager, then Wyndham financial and last person was Eric Bradley.
    2-18-14 received an email from John M Levasseur with Discovery Sales. Stating he received confirmation etc. (email available). Same day I responded (while on vacation) “I was not aware that we are unable to use all the locations that were in the larger booklet. I'm reviewing the Discovery book and there and very limited locations. Are these the only ones we can vacation as being in the Discovery group?”
    2-18-14 2nd email I sent that day said “Also Eric Bradley advised us we can use the points prior to the $1200 and I would like a documented "Yes" on that so we can use it when we would like to. Thank you”
    2-19-14 (the day we had to fly home) I received an email back from John M Levasseur but it stated it was Eric Bradley responding with John’s email. He never answered the above question about the locations being different and not being notified of this.
    2-23-14 Since I was on vacation and very busy when I got home with my full time job and being sick I responded on 02/23/14 about more inconclusive incorrect information.
    2-24-14 emailed stating I wanted to cancel since I received nothing.
    2-24-14 emailed again stating I will be mailing the cancelation via postal mail 2-25-14.
    I even called and nothing was done. I was on hold for over 20 minutes. Another time I was on hold again and then directed that they cannot proceed due to the account has yet to be activated. I also have faxed over a cancelation request multiple of times.
    All I want is to cancel this. I’m not receiving what we were verbally told.
    I have already contacted BBB and filed a report. I will continue to file, notify everyone I know, post via social media and an Attorney if needed.

    1. This should be a lesson for anyone seeking to buy a timeshare as this is the way you can expect to be treated after you have sold your soul to the DEVIL! They own you now, and can do anything they want because if you read the fine print, they run the game. I know I got the shaft too. If you signed the papers, then you are the one obligated to fulfill what you agree to they aren't obligated to do anything but leach on to you and suck the life out of you. It's not a good ending, but until we all get together on this and take real control of our lives again instead of crooked timecrap developers and sold out law makers, then it looks like we are in this for the long haul.

  36. Sorry to here the same story of our expierance in april with the same guy. Only we are unable to get an e-mail address any where. It would be greater help if people gave out information to be successful in fighting these sales men as well as these big companys. Only information is what gets you success in my opionion. Knowledge is power. Don't activate your package as it solidifys the deal in my opinion.
