And it will continue to go on if nothing is done. Make as much noise as you can and perhaps something will happen to stop these crooks. If you listen to those who tell you nothing can be done, nothing will be done and the thieves win. It will encourage more scams to be perpetuated.
Well if you keep posting in this forum it'll be all over Google.
Google's very effective.
Thanks to forums like this one, and the stories of forum participants willing to share, I have learned a lot about timeshare scams.
My experience with La Jolla, as for many of you, has been an ordeal. To share it in detail, without censured, post names, contracts, facts, and circulate it around, I created a blog.
My goal, to hurt them where it counts and eventually close the down.
Someone suggested I am naÔve and am trying to move a mountain thinking is a rock; I have no illusion this will be an easy task; however, I believe it is a consumerís right to know about shady business practices, and it is the responsibility of those who are aware of them, to report them and file complaints. In the absence of government intervention, where the Mexican authorities are apathetic to La Jolla's dealings, regardless of the many complaints they have, our only option is to damage their SCAM by exposing their reputation in as many places as we can.
Please read the blog and pass it around.

I just read your experience at la Jolla and iím sorry about that, but itís good that youíre writing about it to beware other people to be scammed. What you shouldíve done is writing a cancellation letter to the company in a 5 days period since you signed up for the membership. If you didnít do that but still want to cancel your contract, thereís something you can do. You will not get a total refund, but you wonít have to pay any more money to the company. For any more questions please contact me for a free consultation, Iím always happy to help people in situations like yours.

Beware of new posters promoting their services.
On this struggling economy, itís almost impossible to have a timeshare and to be up to date with the yearly payments. Before buying a timeshare, calculate the total purchase price, including the timeshare fees and the cost of travel. Then, compare these costs with other vacation packages to the same destination where your timeshare is. Keep in mind that if you try to resell your timeshare it is very unlike that you recover the amount of money that you paid for it.
