I see.I would send written notice to them by fax/e-mail and follow-up by certified mail today or tomorrow in order to properly exercise your right to terminate the contract.FL law does provide 10 days in which to terminate the contract without further obligation, for purchases of a timeshare.Here is a link that sets out this law:http://floridalawyer.typepad.com/my_weblog/2007/11/what-do-you-do-.htmlThese provisions would arguably apply to your situation. Also, if the contract itself provides a right to rescind, then you would have that right based on the express provisions of the agreement.Finally, since they represented that you have the right to rescind, that would typically provide a basis to terminate the agreement for fraudulent inducement even if it is found that you do not have a right to rescind the agreement.If the company disputes your right to rescind, I would file complaints with the BBB, state Consumer Protection Agency, and/or retain a local attorney to represent you.

hi i was wondering how do u go about writing the fax/email what all needs to b said in it etc
It doesn't have to be formal, but should include the fact that you are exercising your right to rescind the contract and reference the contract you signed. If you expect a refund of anything, you should indicate your expectation for that to occur promptly and for them to promptly confirm their receipt of this notice by whatever means you wish for them to respond to you.
