I used to recently work for Bluegreens marketing department. I saw firsthand lots of things in the company under the wire. First those airline tickets are sometimes a "fat chance".... A presentation is normally involved and people are not informed of this fact. The attorney general had a right to file suit. The company just recently received an award from the Better Business Bureau. Did someone not do their homework? More importantly is the recent company news. John Maloney (CEO) has relinquished info. that about half of the companies sales centers are shutting down... I'm sure employees are thrilled! Thousands out of a job for the betterment of the company? I'm sure severence pay is out of the question... LMAO!! I'm not a biter employee just know some interesting things....

I worked for Bluegreen as well on the resort end. We had a nice resort that was part of a group of resorts that Bluegreen took over management of when they purchased Resort Destinations International(RDI) not to be confused with RCI. Our owners were happy with the way things were going at the time. Suddenly we had Sales reps in trying to talk our owners into converting their units for points which would open up space for the vacation club owners who had points. I had many owners who regretted makning that decision because although they were told they could usee the points any time they wanted and go wherever they wanted many of the people I spoke to could not get a reservation when they wanted one. Point owners were also lead to believe that all Bluegreen properties were of the same quality; but they had many high end resorts and also older resorts that points owners were totally unhappy with after spending many thousands of dollars to get the points. I truly feel for all of my friends at the resort that are still dealing with the reprecussions of poor sales practices. Good Luck to them and the owners

Timeshare fraud has been around since the timeshare idea was created, but they increase during poor economy. When times are difficult, timeshare owners are stuck with properties they can´t travel to or even afford. Desperate to recoup some money to pay for bills, they can easily become victims to scams artists pretending to be their timeshare salvation who will take upfront fees -as much as five number figures in some cases- but fail to fulfill their promise:
