PALM SPRINGS, Calif., May 21, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — Timeshare cancellation attorney Mitchell Sussman files lawsuit against Diamond Resorts.
Attorney Mitchell Reed Sussman has filed a lawsuit on behalf of his clients, Minoru and Mari Imai, a retired couple who’d discovered in May that a timeshare they’d purchased in April was not what was promised. The case entitled Imai v. Diamond, Orange County Superior Court, case no. 30-2019-01087447-CU-FR-CJC alleges that after a six hour presentation a Diamond salesperson, acting as a duel agent with the fiduciary responsibility duty to act in good faith and with fair disclosures, opened two credits cards in his clients’ name without their knowledge or consent and charged these credit cards a combined amount of $24,000.00.
“My clients were only made aware of this at the end of the presentation when the agent explained he’d already taken those steps for them. It is outrageous to think that someone would do this to senior citizens.”
But perhaps most egregious according to Sussman was that Mr. Imai, a diabetic, had been deprived of food and drink other than water even though he complained of hypoglycemia.
“The degree to which Diamond’s agent intimidated and lied to my clients is almost criminal,” Sussman alleges. “He fraudulently filled out a credit application which indicated that the Imai’s were gainfully employed earning $185,000.00 per year when in fact they were retired and on a fixed income.”
In addition to charging the down payment on the Imai’s credit cards, the salesman had plaintiffs execute loan documents obligating them to ten years of payments of over $700.00 per month.
“They could never in their lifetime utilize all the points sold to them,” says Sussman. “Moreover, the agents fraud put my clients in dire financial condition. And his promises that the timeshare would appreciate appears to be an out and out lie. If it weren’t you would think that Diamond would be only too happy to take it back and resell it themselves.”
