Of course timeshares are not scams but their tactics often appear like!
My best friend is a DVC member and after she purchased direct and added on resale she introduced me to DVC! Now I own 14 contracts (13 resale-1 direct)!
Timeshares can seem complicated when you are first learning and the guides feel very strongly that once you are taught the system you should be ready to sign! My advice is for you to do your own research and contact them when you are ready to buy! In fact do this w/ every purchase no matter how big or small! A new purchase should make you feel good- if it doesn't walk away as you did!
How do you manage 14 contracts, how much are you paying in fees yearly, all same use year?
