Here's the link to their BBB report where you can file your complaint requesting a refund.

You can also file a complaint with the Florida Attorney General's office. Check out the Florida AG's website:!OpenDocument

Timeshare salespeople are trained to use high-pressure sales tactics including the law of reciprocity (free vacation in exchange for 90 min sales pitch), social proof and limited-time offers. The most common lies made at these timeshare sales presentation are that 1) timeshares are a good investment, 2) you can make money renting your timeshare to others and 3)timeshares are profitable if you need to sell a timeshare you no longer want or use. Timeshare salespeople make commission of the timeshares they sell, and this commission is what determines their livelihood. The irony of it all is that some of these salespeople don't believe they are lying at all if they skip over the details and focus on the highlights. A good rule of thumb for surviving a timeshare presentation is to ask the timeshare sales person if you can take the timeshare contract home with you so you can have your attorney review it before you sign it. This serves as a good deterrent from buying a timeshare since often times, timeshare sales people are also trained not to let you leave the sales room with any paperwork in hand.

It is ok to go and attend timeshare presentations. However, be very careful as this presentation is very high pressure and many decently intelligent people have fallen victims of these scams. I would recommend you to book a vacation on your own and just travel if your intention isn’t buying a timeshare:
