Warning: An Imposter!

Thanks to the holiday season many timeshare owners are trying to get shot of their timeshares as soon as possible. Many hope the money they save from selling their timeshare will help them through the season. But in the world today, shady business practices can be discovered everywhere. An article on PRLeap shows just that. 

Timeshare owners around the world are contacted every day by affiliations who try to sell them their services thru the phone. These firms will do whatever is needed to persuade timeshare owners to make an front-loaded payment for an empty guarantee. Telemarketers are highly skilled in convincing these owners that there's a buyer waiting to get their timeshare, but they should make a little payment first for the info to be given. It is not till later that the owners understand that they've been scammed and the company / organization has totally disappeared. 

On the other hand, recently, timeshare owners have been informed about the many methods fraudsters use to make a few bucks and are not as easily fooled as they were before. Timeshare owners have learned ways to research a company before coughing up for their services. 

One major issue for fraudsters and confidence men is they have no credibility because they don't have an estate broker's license. They would also not be able to acquire one due to their inferior past. Due to this, conmen have taken their efforts to new heights. They are now posing as imposters by using the names of licensed, credible timeshare resale brokers. The imposter ( con artist ) will push the timeshare owner into checking for themselves the validity of the company while they're on the telephone. By using this method, they have convinced timeshare owners that making an advance charge is necessary so as to get their timeshare sold.

Screaming in Frustration

A lady from North Carolina was very crabby because she couldn't get out of her timeshare. The business that sold her the timeshare had purportedly said that she would be able to get out of the timeshare if she did not need it. However, when the time arrived the company refused to buy the timeshare back. Latoya Straford attempted many times to contact the company for a refund with no results. She hit another road block when she hired another company to help her get out of her timeshare. 

Straford had bought a Wyndham Resort timeshare with her partner on pure impulse. The timeshare cost $18,000 and at the time she suspected it'd be a sound investment for future holidays. But when they returned home and tried to cancel in the five day cancelation cut off point she was turned down. Straford attempted to contact Wyndham but she could not find anyone that would help her cancel the timeshare contract. 

When she eventually chatted to a Wyndham representative they told her that it was too late to cancel and she should begin to make her standard payments for the timeshare. The payments came out to be $400 a month on top of $750 of the $1,500 company charge. After contacting Wyndham resorts, a spokesman stated that though Straford did not cancel in the cancelation cut-off point they might make an exception and let her out of the timeshare contract. Straford now recommends other consumers to not get a timeshare rashly because at the end it is merely a lot of debt.
