How it works:
- Opening: touts will give you scratch and win tickets, where you will surely win a prize. To redeem it, you have to head for a 90 minute timeshare presentation.
- Presentation: you will be pressured to sign up for a timeshare scheme that is not worth it. Reasons: high upfront deposit, high maintenance costs, difficult to use and sell.
- The prize: it is a free stay at one of the timeshare resorts! It is not really free due to terms and conditions such as needing you to have all meals at the resort’s expensive restaurant.
Places to beware:
- Kuala Lumpur: Mid Valley Megamall, Bintang Walk
