Travelers Take Legal Action Against Travel Resorts of America
Travelers have recently taken legal action against Travel Resorts of America (TRA) for alleged deceptive practices. TRA is a timeshare company that operates resorts in the United States and Canada. The company has been accused of using deceptive sales tactics to pressure customers into buying timeshares.
The lawsuit, filed in the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania, alleges that TRA used high-pressure sales tactics to convince customers to purchase timeshares. The lawsuit also claims that TRA misrepresented the benefits of the timeshares, such as the ability to exchange them for other resorts, and failed to disclose important information about the timeshares, such as the fact that they could not be sold or transferred.
The lawsuit seeks to recover damages for the customers who were allegedly misled by TRA. The lawsuit also seeks to stop TRA from engaging in deceptive practices in the future.
The lawsuit is the latest in a series of legal actions taken against TRA. In 2018, the company was sued by the state of Florida for allegedly engaging in deceptive practices. The lawsuit was settled in 2019, with TRA agreeing to pay $2.5 million in fines and restitution.
The lawsuit against TRA is a reminder that travelers should be aware of the potential risks associated with timeshare purchases. Before signing any contracts, travelers should make sure they understand the terms and conditions of the timeshare and any associated fees. They should also be aware of their rights and the potential for legal action if they feel they have been misled or taken advantage of.
Travelers should also be aware of the potential for scams when it comes to timeshare purchases. Scammers may try to pressure travelers into buying timeshares or offer timeshares at prices that are too good to be true. It is important to be aware of these potential scams and to do research before making any decisions.
Travelers should also be aware of their rights when it comes to timeshare purchases. If they feel they have been misled or taken advantage of, they should contact their state’s attorney general’s office or the Federal Trade Commission to file a complaint.
The lawsuit against TRA is a reminder that travelers should be aware of their rights and the potential risks associated with timeshare purchases. By doing their research and understanding their rights, travelers can protect themselves from potential scams and deceptive practices.
