The Point at Poipu Owners Association 

COPP ACTION "Links" Page

How you can help US and Yourself....
We are a small group but, we are determined. We are all either deeded owners or points owners and we are being challenged by DRI every year. We are told that they want to turn The Point into a "hotel". The problem of course, is that DRI will do this at our expense. Following, is a list of contact information that will allow you to complain about your personal situation. We have over 6000 deeded & points owners and if we all sent an email or a letter, imagine the effect!
Contact Info....
The links below are intended for you to contact the most appropriate party for your question or complaint. Please let us know if we can help you in any other way.


The FTC "is" the Office of Consumer Protection - register your complaints with them now, and be sure to copy us at This way, we will have a copy of your complaint on file when we take DRI to court. ...(complaint form)

The FTC investigates "unfair or deceptive acts or practices” to include making false claims and promises that are material and which enticed the person to buy a timeshare. The FTC also investigates complaints where there is willful and intentional misrepresentation, omissions and misleading comments or acts, failure to fully disclose material facts (ie water intrusion problem), that a reasonable person would interpret, which causes substantial injury that was not reasonably avoidable and not outweighed by countervailing benefits to the complainant or to the competition. Negative and misleading discussions about other timeshare companies to persuade and influence the person might be considered a deceptive act. The following sites may show a pattern and practice of unfair or deceptive acts or practices:
