So, I know the typical question here would be, did i get ripped off? But i already know that i got ripped off so I'm not even going to bother.

My question now is, are Resort VP/Vacation Property Trader and The Timeshare Space the same company or a re-opened version or owned by the same person?

If so that just means that i got ripped off twice by the same company.

horrible company

I joined The Timeshare Space after receiving a postcard in the mail from them a few months back, from their website they look professional and have a commercial. After weeks of trying to get some kind of information from them I turned to the internet to get information about them and found this forum (and others) last night. After seeing that i probably got taken for my $795 I called a friend in Orlando to go stop by their office and see how things looked (any clients there, if they have a showroom, if they were dressed like they were going to go meet with clients, etc.) So he went and stopped by... to find out their "office" is a converted house in the ghetto! My friend said that this is an area that he usually avoids at all costs full of drug dealers and criminals. When he went to the office he said he was confronted at the door, there were 6 or 7 people all standing right inside the doorway, they told my friend to take his hands out of his back pockets and then 2 of them kind of pulled up their shirts showing him that they had guns. The manager (possibly) came out and asked my friend repetedly how he found them. He never even explained that he was there to check them out for me but i don't blame him. I'm just glad he's ok!

i am now going to go post this anywhere that i possibly can!!!!!!!

Not saying this is shill posting. If it is, how are negative posts like this good for these outfits? Any publicity is good publicity?

Just bringing this up because we have seen these in the past where first time posters who signed up on the BBS the same day they posted are likely to be shills.

Anybody with an axe to grind can use shill tactics, not just people promoting a company.

Not conclusive proof, but...

Both messages were posted from Embarq internet accounts, via IPs that trace back to Embarq/Las Vegas.

Oh, how great is the IP address?

So two people registering a day apart and commenting on the same (strange) thread who claim to be from Seattle and HB are both logged into the internet on the same ISP out of Las Vegas...

The Admins on TUG are great!
