Orange Park, Florida (PRUnderground) November 9th, 2019
If you are a Timeshare owner it is a near certainty you will be contacted by someone looking to rip you off! Thankfully these scams all share one unique detail in that they all rely on convincing owners to pay a large upfront fee!
The simple fact is that Timeshare owners can protect themselves from virtually EVERY SINGLE SCAM out there by following the Timeshare Users Group golden rule:
Never pay anyone a significant amount of money upfront to buy, sell, rent, trade, get rid of, etc your Timeshare!
Each and every one of these scams begins with a company or individual pitching you a rehearsed story spelling out exactly what you want to hear. Usually that they have a buyer already lined up, or that they can sell your timeshare for “more than you paid for it”, or other such lines that otherwise seem too good to be true!
Regardless of what the story is or how these companies attempt to set their hooks into owners, it always eventually results in the owner being asked to pay some sort of legitimate sounding fee upfront before services are rendered, and this is how an owner is turned into a victim!
These scams have so many different variations its impossible to keep track of them all over the past 25+ years, but we have put together a free guide that describes the bulk of them available here: Timeshare Scams Revealed
