We have owned a 4 bedroom timeshare with Westgate in Orlando for 10 or 12 years now.While we have had some very nice vacations trading and using it, what we did not realize at the time we bought it was just how out of control greedy Westgate really was.

Our maintenence fee when we bought it was about $250 a year. I thought this was a lot to maintain what was basically a small apartment for one week. There was aparently no control on how much they could raise these fees and now we are paying over $1000 a year. By my calculation, they could replace every appliance and piece of furniture every week with that much money.

We are presently staying at the Westgate Lakes in Orlando and we had stayed here 8 years ago.

The TVs the couches the furniture and as far as we can tell all the fixtures are exactly the same.So if they were getting $1000 a week to maintain this place, where did the money go?


Here are some agencies for everyone to contact that are on this class or people whom are fed up with west gate and their deceptive practices. The more people that contact all these agencies the quicker they will be investigated for fraud and ethics on state and federal charges.

1)FTC 1(877)382-4357

2)HUD 1(800)347-3735

3)Bureau of Compliance,Regulations and Complaints,Orlando 1(850)488-1122

4)FL Dept of AG and Consumer Services 1(800)435-7352

Out of FL 1(850)410-3800

5)Div of Consumer Services(timeshares) 1(850)487-1395

6)FL Public Service Commission 1(800)342-3552.

If everyone and I mean everyone that reads these posts contacts all these agencies they will have plenty of ammunition to go after them on several State and Federal charges.Lets give them their just action for all of their deceptive practices and fraud to all they encounter.
