Attended a presentation at Palmera with no intention of buying anything as we already have a week elsewhere that we were considering disposing of. Were prepared to leave until our salesperson (professional liar) told us that they would buy our timeshare and that the $16k could be used to buy a membership at Palmera. Advantages to us so we were told: lower maintenance fees, eliminating the in perpetuity clause at our existing timeshare, better trading power, one week per year in a 3 bedroom during prime season or 5 weeks in February in a one bedroom. All of which turns out to be pure BS. We are out over $1700 (deposit and closing fees) and have engaged a lawyer (not an exit scammer) to attempt to get our money back. We have lodged complaints with the BBB and the South Carolina attorney general (we have a made a criminal complaint as this was an overt act of fraud) and we have also registered with the South Carolina consumer protection agency. I have written negative reviews with every organization I can think of and I will be handing out leaflets in the Palmera Vacation Club Parking lot and at all of their Hilton Head properties the next time I am in the area in the hopes I can disrupt their business for at least a few days and save some more innocents from being taken by these soul less scumbags. What a despicable organization! Hilton Head and all of South Carolina must be ashamed to share a state with them…
