Send Me Your Experiences! I'm Your Erin Brockovich!!!
WILLIAMSBURG, VIRGINIA -- In or around Summer 2005, my at the time husband and I signed a contract to be members of an indoor water park. Two days following the signing, my husband got hurt and we could no longer afford it. At that point I called colonial Williamsburg to start the process of cancellation. They informed me I had to do so in writing, my first mistake being I did not send it registered mail and maintain a copy.
I kept receiving billings, in September 2006 I called to verify the account had been canceled, at that point I was informed it was indeed canceled. Several years later, much to my surprise, I was being sued... FOR $24,000.00! The original contract however was, if I remember correctly, approximately $11,000.
As my ex-husband is currently slipping below the radar, I have been going at this on my own. After hiring a lawyer and losing the suite for lack of evidence of my cancellation, I expressed my grief to a personal friend who sells time shares himself. I was then informed that the ENTIRE thing had been a huge rip-off and it was supposed to be built 10 YEARS AGO! I have since been looking into these matters myself trying to find out what exactly he meant.
I PERSONALLY VISITED THE 'PROPOSED' WATER PARK'S SITE, WHICH DOES NOT CURRENTLY EXIST (WHICH THEY CAN NOT GET THE PERMIT FROM YORK COUNTRY TO BUILD)AND SPOKE WITH A REPRESENTATIVE, COME TO FIND OUT THEIR BUILDING PERMIT HAS EXPIRED AND THEY ARE USING THE STATE OF THE ECONOMY TO POSTPONE EVEN LONGER! ALL OF WHICH I HAVE TAKEN PICTURES OF DATED SEPTEMBER 17, 2010.
I have found HUNDREDS AND HUNDREDS of complaints, all encompassing the same things. Currently I am doing my own investigation, possibly with the assistance of an attorney soon. My goal being to get a class action suite going.
Where we currently stand people is on the edge, with strength in numbers and all of your stories to send in, this could very reasonably be resolved.
Please e-mail me your stories and any contact information if you wish to join in or be of assistance. I DO CURRENTLY HAVE A LAWYER, who may be interested in taking over the class action suit, additional lawyers to be brought on if necessary.
