I bought a membership with the Unlimited Vacation «Club

Customer Question
I bought a membership...

I bought a membership with the Unlimited Vacation «Club while in the Dominican over Christmas. I made large downpayment & was going to pay off the balance this month. However it is not what it was made out to be. The contract says I must pay 50% of the total to cancel. Wondering if here is a way to get around that.

Lawyer's Assistant: What state are you in? And is a local attorney or other consumer protection advocate helping with this?

I live in Alberta, Canada and I haven`t talked to anyone else yet

Lawyer's Assistant: What steps have you taken so far?

None
