Timeshares & YTB – news about some old controversies

Timeshares have been a bit controversial on this blog over the years.

Here’s an article on a timeshare selling scam where one company asked for a $500 listing fee and made some promises about what they could get for timeshares. It seems that you never get your money back when selling a timeshare.

Our old friend YTB got some bad news from the state of California. They now have to tell people it’s almost impossible to make money by selling travel and I think they are no longer allowed to charge $450 to join up.

That just makes sense – you don’t have to spend money to join other network marketing things, or at least not much. You are strongly encouraged to buy products – YTB just didn’t deal in products so they got lumped in with the pyramid schemes.
