This is how most of the timeshare marketing companies operate. When you have been lured to their premises for your free gifts and lucky draws u will be initially enticed with a timeshare membership. Meaning, join the club and enjoy a free week holiday every year at the member resort/s or hotel with your family. But don't forget u have to pay maintenance fees which may go up every year. And the amount u pay every year depends what size unit u buy! The bigger the unit e.g. 2 BD membership the more the maintenance fees. Then u join an exchange company so that u can holiday in other resorts not affiliated to your timeshare club. Pay another $150 per year. And you are so entranced or mesmerized by the sales presentation u sign the dotted line without much consideration. Why, because u are so weary and tired after sitting for 3 to 4 hrs of the promised 90 mins sales presentation. Then after paying for the membership partially or full and after the 'cooling period' is over u get a bitter aftertaste about the membership. Out of the blues some staff from the company calls u up and asks u how u about your membership. U tell them about your misgivings. This person from the marketing company then tells u that they have another type of membership which is better than timeshare in which u don't have to pay maintenance fees or exchange fees. But u need to convert your existing membership into the new type and it cost u some more money. Then there is this exciting new feature called the cashback scheme! What u may not realise is that this new membership has an annual subscription fee. You don't stop to wonder why is it this new membership was not shown to you earlier! And then the whole cycle goes.......
And when u tell them u want out they wave the contract at you and threaten u with legal action. This is typically what happens to people who succumb to their greed and go for the free gifts and lucky draws. U will always be the loser. So beware the lure!

The cashback scheme is designed to give them more cash and you, with nothing to get back.
