Rename “Branson” to Branscam”
The Roark Vacation Travel Club/Club Resorts Intervals LLC, owned by Mr. Gary W. Snadon, unfortunately is a SCAM. You pay big bucks and are promised that you will be able to book cruises, timeshares, rentals, and airlines for 30 to 70% less than anywhere else. You are also told that you can book motels and hotels for 50% off the highest rack rate. If you go to other travel sites and compare apples with apples and oranges with oranges you will find out that this is not true.
The presentation one attends in Branscam, MO at the Roark Vacation Resort, which is a timeshare resort owned/managed by Mr. Gary W. Snadon, is filled with false representations of what is available and prices that would lead the unsuspecting into shelling out money for this SCAM.
Under Missouri law you have three days to cancel the contract, but it is difficult to do so, or to get time to research on the Internet if you do not have a computer with you or access. You cannot log on the CRI Internet site to see what is available without a membership number which does not come for several weeks.
I would hope that the Missouri Attorney General once again goes after these travel clubs as he did in the past. Unfortunately, they pop up to make the quick buck to give Branson, MO a bad reputation and a need to rename the tourist area as Branscam, MO.
To all visitors to Branscam I would recommend not attending the Roark Vacation Travel Club/CRI presentation. For those who have been taken in by these folks, file a complaint with the Missouri Attorney General’s Office, your home state Attorney General and the Federal Trade Commission. Be sure to dispute any credit card charges with the card issuer and do not give up. Maybe we as visitors can get action done to put these scammers out of business since the city of Branscam looks the other way.
