Hi and thanks for asking your question. My name is ***** ***** I will be assisting you. I am a Florida licensed attorney. What are the terms of the cancellation that this company provided you?

My experience with companies that offer to purchase timeshares is that they are generally a scam, will take your money and you will not get what you were promised. In fact, if you research Leisure Getaways on the Internet, you will find a very large number of complaints by folks who were taken advantage of.

My suggestion is if you have 72 hours to get your money back, cancel the contract and get a refund. There are better and much cheaper ways to rid yourself of the timeshare. You shouldn't have to pay a large sum of money to a company purporting to assist you for a fee.

Anne was extremely helpful. Her information put me in the right direction for action that kept me legal, possible saving me a ton of money in the future. Thank you again, Anne!!

ElaineAtlanta, GA

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
