Do you feel you've been taken advantage of in the sale of a 5 star resort owned by Bluegreen Corporation?? Below is my story and after reading many others like my own, I think, we the owners have rights and need to take a stand. I am considering a national class action law suit, but I need to get everybody on board. If you are interested, please continue to read below.
My husband and I bought into Bluegreen after visiting in Gatlinburg, TN. We bought in as Silver owners (20,000 points), without ever an explanation of maintenance fees. We didn't know to ask about them and they surely didn't offer any advice. This past April we went to Falls Village in MO and attended another 'Owners Update' meeting and were sold an additional ...(15,000 points) because with 'the Bluegreen representative kept explaining that it was such a good investment because we could rent them out.' In his sale, he explained all of the extra income potential there was to be made in the rental of BG points. He suggested we talk to 'Sheila' at Timeshare Lifestyle and she would help. So we called Sheila at TL. We dropped another another $1000 toward listing our BG points for rental with Sheila in May and nothing has happened. So, YES, I've been screwed twice.
We do not like, nor can afford the constant increase in maintainence fees. Even more so, I don't like the fact that the Better Business Bureau has revoked Bluegreen's Accreditation. I think it is time for Bluegreen to step up to what we, the owners, were sold, without the increase in maintainence fees to manage their business during these economically hard times!
Did you know ... on January 26, 2010 this company's accreditation in Better Business Bureau was revoked by the Board of Directors. Their accreditation was revoked due to recent government action involving the business's customer relations which indicates a significant failure of the business to meet standards of conduct expected of a BBB member.
Based on BBB files, this business has a BBB Rating of F on a scale from A+ to F.Reasons for this rating include:"¢409 complaints filed against business"¢Failure to respond to 8 complaints filed against business."¢Government action(s) against business."¢BBB Accreditation was revoked because business failed to comply with agreed BBB standards.
