Timeshare Sales – Investigative Reporting

The Washington DC ABC affiliate WJLA-7 did an investigative report on an 85 year-old woman who was sold a $39,000+ timeshare through Wyndham Resorts.  Turns out she had already purchased one before and was upsold to a new unit with a points system.  The reporter called Wyndham and the woman received back her money. See the video here.
