NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- Tennessee is participating in a national law enforcement initiative to warn consumers about deceptive travel promoters and timeshare resellers.
The initiative is coordinated by the Federal Trade Commission and state Attorney General Bob Cooper announced Tennessee's participation this week.
Among the allegations are that some timeshare and vacation club companies are using misleading sales tactics to induce consumers into purchasing programs that have high maintenance fees, poor travel date and destination selection, and hidden costs.
Other abuses include cancellation issues, difficulty contacting customer service, and misleading or deceptive high pressure sales presentations.
