That is a key finding of a four-month investigation of the controversial industry by the Better Business Bureau.

In July, the Better Business Bureau released a study about fraud within the timeshare industry in Missouri: "Don't Fall for Deception, Pressure and Traps Disguised as Vacations: A Better Business Bureau Study of the Missouri Timeshare/Vacation Club Industry." We spoke with Whitney Quick, regional director of the Better Business Bureau in Cape Girardeau about the results from the study, and how you can avoid falling victim to a timeshare fraud.
