So I got this call today on my cell phone from a local number.  I haven't picked up this same call 5x in the past 3 days but for some reason, I had a lapse in judgement and picked this one up.  The lady went on to tell me that on Wednesday and Thursday of this week there is an "owner's meeting for Plantation House and it's actually being held right near me in West Palm Beach."  I found that very odd.

She said "people are complaining about the rising fees" and this meeting will address that.   She said I could come at 11, 1, or 3 and it would only be an hour.  This was the clincher for me that this was a sales pitch of some kind.  I asked something else and she mentioned something about RCI but said that "this is not a buyer/seller meeting" which made no sense. I asked the lady again, WHO is holding the meeting and she hung up on me.  

This is only our 2nd year as an owner so maybe this is well known scam among owners, but I figured I'd share so nobody wastes an hour of their time...

We're heading to Plantation House on Friday and can't wait to get there.

Cheers!

I also had a call but they continue to call me at least once a month. It is a scam. I usually don't pick it up but I was expecting a call from someone and I will not do that again.

You can report suspected phone scams to the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) on-line. When I receive scam letters, I send them to our State Attorney General. I always hear back from his/her office.

Welcome to being a new owner at PH. May you love your time at South Seas as much as we do!

Thank you so much.  We rented from PH owners for 5 years prior to purchasing and finally took the plunge a couple years ago.  Our kids are 10 and 12 and it is such a perfect time in their lives to spend memorable time together at such a fun place like South Seas.

We have owned since 1988 our daughter was 6 years old at the time and have gone back every year since. Now our 2 grandsons are enjoying it like our daughter did. The memories are wonderful. Enjoy your time  at Plantation House and the resort

Do they actually think they're going to get someone to go to a meeting?
