We returned to Hilton head on another trip two months later and learned that the apartments we had been shown in order to sell us on them have not been offered for sale but are for so called development weeks. The contract we signed simply gives a number of a unit which we had not been shown. These in no way resemble the unit we were shown and were told we had purchased and would be staying in.
If the unit you purchased is not the unit you recieved you can terminate the contract and sue for fraud. I would make it clear that unless the contract was voided, your first call will be to the State Attorney General - fraud section.
If you get no satisfaction there, you can file a civil suit to rescind and to seek whatever damages you suffered.

This is not a mistake or a clerical error. Neither is it bait and switch which is where you lure someone in on a low price and then switch them to something else. The person switched knows they are not buying what they originally came in for. What you are is the victim of outright fraud. You can seek to rescind the purchase or if there are units still available, insist that you get what was represented that you purchased. Do not delay in taking one or more of the actions described in my answer now that you know what has occurred.
