Just a note (and a heads up) to those of you who MIGHT be interested in a timeshare sales presentation.
The ¿new? timeshares sale group for these two related properties is VERY high pressure! A couple came into my bookstore yesterday with the wife in tears. Seems they couldn't resist the pressure (after being handed "up the line" to the Sales Manager finally) and had purchased a timeshare they really couldn't afford.
Thank goodness they came to ask my advice. I was able to tell them about the Mexican law allowing a five-day "cooling off" period, during which the contract could be voided and their down payment refunded. Still frightened about returning to confront the folks that were responsible for the pressure tactics, they asked me if I could help. So I will accompany them tomorrow morning to the Luna Palace, where the sales presentation occurred, and make certain they don't get brow-beaten and treated illegally, i.e., convinced by the Sales Manager that they can't back out, by acting my intimidating best LOL and quoting the law to him.
I'll report back on this thread just how things went. At the worst, we will have to then go to the Sinaloa state office for crimes against tourists (right across the street from the U.S. Consular Agency and in front of the Hotel Playa Mazatlán where the Canadian Consulate used to be. English spoken and understood. Official Sinaloa state attorneys who are not afraid of ANYONE! ), and get them to make the cancellation and refund demand. That should definitely work should all else fail.Edited: 7:25 pm, October 21, 2012
