You sign up here solely to make this post...twice? You obviously have some kind of ax to grind. Many people are very happy with their Bluegreen ownership.

Thanks to the OP for posting this again since I am sure that many like me didn't see it the first time. Perhaps the OP does have an axe to grind, but facts is facts. Bluegreen had it's BBB acreditation revoked. They are apparently not doing business like they did in the past when they were allowed to be a member of the BBB and people do need to be warned repeatedly because people don't often go back and read posts that are months old. If this new post prevents one person from buying from Bluegreen, then reposting it was of great benefit to that person.

Facts:
1.Bluegreen is no longer allowed to be a member of the BBB.
2. Bluegreen is now rated F (the worst possible rating) by the BBB.
3.Bluegreen was sued by Pennsylvania's Atty General for false and misleading sales and for the use of improper contracts. Bluereen settled with the Penn Atty General. Settled means admitting guilt and paying rather than waiting to be found guilty.

Why would anyone be upset that someone posted this factual information on a timeshare owner's website other than Bluegreen?


This is from the BBB web site regarding Bluegreen:

" Why Accreditation Revoked
On January 26, 2010 this company's accreditation in BBB was revoked by BBB's Board of Directors due to recent government action involving the business's customer relations which indicates a significant failure of the business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.

Government Actions
On June 2, 2010 the Pennsylvania Attorney General's Bureau of Consumer Protection reached a settlement with BlueGreen Corporation that addresses complaints about the company's alleged use of deceptive 'contests,' misleading sales presentations and improper contracts in the marketing and sale of timeshare vacation packages in Pennsylvania."

BBB rates Bluegreen F because:

" BBB Rating
Based on BBB files, this business has a BBB Rating of F on a scale from A+ to F.
Reasons for this rating include:
•405 complaints filed against business
•Failure to respond to 7 complaints filed against business.
•Government action(s) against business.
•BBB Accreditation was revoked because business failed to comply with agreed BBB standards."

The same thing can be said for Wyndham

The Better Business Bureau in Florida, where Wyndham is based, has given Wyndham an F rating after getting several complaints, a Wyndham official testified in San Antonio early this year.
