A federal class action was filed last week alleging that Wyndham Vacation Resorts Inc. used misleading information to entice plaintiffs to purchase timeshares. Plaintiffs allege that Wyndham is using long lasting sales meetings as well as omitting data about vacation options and overall costs as wells as misrepresentations.
Plaintiffs’ lawsuit states that non-members can book timeshares sometimes at a lower cost than owners and in a shorter timeframe. The suit also alleges that Wyndham failed to disclose during the sales presentations that bookings are to be made an entire year in advance and that chosen destinations are often unavailable.
Class members, if approved, are all persons who signed Wyndham timeshare agreements on or after January 27, 2016 in Florida, who attended a Wyndham sales presentation and for those how tried to cancel their contract but were unsuccessful.
The case is DuBose et al. v. Wyndham Vacation Resort Inc., Case No. 1:20-cv-01118, in the U.S. District Court for the District of Delaware.
