The 2016 United States Election has thrown up the elephant in the room regarding media news stories. Apart from the surprising result the news about ‘fake news’ has put the media on the back foot. What had remained unsaid for a long time is now out into the open.

The example of Robert Sussman’s Vacation Tree Fraud reports fall in the same bracket as the most powerful personality in the world. The Robert Sussman telemarketing scam should be dubbed as ‘hogwash’ (if you had the leanings of an Englishman – this one word of ‘hogwash’ means preposterous and unbelievable). It is obvious that competitors have used the power of the internet to spread false canards (again if you are of English descent – meaning lies).

He was spot on with his analysis and used the world wide web to facilitate the trade.

Robert Sussman rent or sell options became a runaway hit with idle timeshares.  For a small fee his company took the hard work out of the equation by providing due diligence. He even extended offers of guaranteeing a sale after 10 months with a fair price guarantee. This deal kicked in the event that a listed timeshare property remained unsold.
