A retired Omaha couple thought they found a way out of an expensive timeshare contract. But the solution turned out to be no vacation.
Timeshare buyer Bonnie Monie says, "I feel like I’ve really been taken." The Monies attended a timeshare sales pitch at an Omaha restaurant last summer paying Wise Solutions of Branson, Missouri ninety five hundred dollars.
The couple says the sales crew brought a copy machine like this to the meeting room in the restaurant. but when it came time to copy documents to prove their new 95-hundred dollar timeshare, the copy machine didn't work.
After nine months waiting the Monies still have no paperwork that shows points toward a timeshare. Walt Monie says, " They were getting the paperwork together and we would get it. But we never got anything."
A text message to fact finders from Wise Solutions timeshare says, "No not in business but will still answer questions and help members."
Instead the monies turn to Omaha police fraud Detective Rick Belik.
Bonnie says, " I wish we could get it back or stop someone else from getting hurt this badly." Detective.Belik says, " Hopefully we can find some more victims and go after these people."
The retired couple say without a refund they're vacations will be sharing time at home. Bonnie says, " Don’t let people talk you into anything."Bonnie says about four other couples attended the timeshare sales pitch. The detective would like to know if anyone else lost money on the deal.
