LAS VEGAS (KTNV) — Timeshare owners are having a difficult time getting out of their vacation contracts and the Better Business Bureau is warning about a company that promises to help you.
An Ohio couple has owned a Las Vegas timeshare for 12 years.
Chuck McFarren says the maintenance costs have gone up to $1,000 a year and has tried to sell the unit with no luck.
Then, he found a newspaper ad for Omni Ellis, a timeshare exit company that promises to get you out of your contract.
McFarren says he paid the company $3,300 last summer but nothing happened.
And the BBB has Omni Ellis flagged.
So, before using any timeshare exit company, read all the fine print in the agreement, have a lawyer look at it as well, and do your own homework.
