    We bought a timeshare last year, in Branson. They lied. They said all time in Branson would go to red this year. Of course, it didn't. They sold us yellow time. That is just one of the lies they told. Is there anything we can do or are we just stuck? It is actually the second timeshare we bought. We are pretty happy with the first one but maintenance fees have really went up. There should be some laws.
