So you went to their high pressure sales pitch (and I DO MEAN high pressure) and they just wore you down and spun you around until didn't know which way was up and you bought one of their timeshare units. Was it a Red week? I think those are called red because of how much they bleed you for, those go on eBay for under $500 all the time, there are probably half a dozen on sale now.

You may be in a grace period, if it's been less than 3 days (more for some states, I've heard as many as 6) you can probably back out by notifying these people RIGHT AWAY of your desire to cancel the deal. If it's after hours on the last day, fax them AND leave voice mail, then reference the fax and voice mail in your certified letter the next morning. Leave a voicemail with the better business bureau stating that you contacted these people that night and say that you just left a message and would the BBB please make a note of the date and time of this message. I don't know if any of this will help but it can't hurt. They may have given you paperwork to return in case you changed your mind, follow the directions carefully and return it, keep a copy and send it certified mail (unless you are going to deliver it in person, still be sure to get a signed receipt). Cancel all checks and tell your bank not to allow any electronic withdrawls to these people.

If you are too late, then you are pretty much stuck with it. Think of it like buying an expensive car new off the lot and then deciding a few weeks later that you really don't want it. It's too late to take it back. At this point I would urge you to carefully document everything your salesperson told you. Did they state that getting into the Endless Escape or other bonus time program would not be a problem, that you could almost always get in if you gave them two weeks advance notice? Try it half a dozen times, if every time and every location is constantly unable to accomodate you then call your lawyer and talk to him about breach of contract. Think of every little thing the sales person said to get your signature on that paper. Did he promise you that Disney was building in Missouri? Did they say a bullet train waw being built between your city and their resort city? (you laugh, I have documentation in another email of salesmen making both these statements). I can't tell you how many email I've gotten claiming people were lied to or deceived by high pressure sales people. If we go back to that example of the car, and the salesman had promised you that your V8 SUV would get 200 miles to the gallon if only you'd sign on the dotted line, I believe your lawyer could make a good case for breach of contract. Seek professional legal help before deciding or doing anything along these lines.
