How to Get Out of Your Timeshare

April 17, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 184

Consumer advocacy groups nationwide are sounding the alarms about timeshare scams crippling the nation. These timeshare scams have found their way into every part of the timeshare industry. These timeshare scams are creative, well thought out, polished, and so believable that almost every timeshare in the nation will at one time either be approached by or a victim of one the timeshare scams. So how did these timeshare scams become so prevalent? The law of attraction simply put. There are so many millions of dollars out there invested in the timeshare industry that any product like this will be rife with scams. The number of timeshare scams however has to also do with the number of unsatisfied owner base.

Also, if timeshare owners has the ability to give back their timeshare to the resort there wouldn't be as many timeshare scams. These scams prey on the people most desperate. These scams are very lucrative because the victims will be scammed multiple times - many times by the same company. These scams are easy to spot, pretty much any time someone asks you to upgrade, get out of, sell or rent - there is an almost 100% chance of it being one of the many scams. Since these scams have become as prevalent as the genuine timeshare resources themselves, it's a foggy path that you have to traverse. These scams are just everywhere. These scams are generic in process, give money upfront and receive no fulfillment in the back end. Stay away from these timeshare scams.

Another aspect of the scams prevalent in today's society is the scams that happen at the timeshare resort itself. Even though there are on site brokers, licensed real estate agents and many laws set up to protect the consumer - sometimes the most expensive scam happens at the resort itself. Many people are told that their points can be used towards renting out their timeshare, or reselling for a profit. These variations of scams, especially when performed by the original sales agent, can be the most damning. If these people are going to lie to your face, then what about that person calling over the phone - who knows you already respond and fall victim to scams? These scams seem to be more prevalent at the resorts in N. American than any other country.

Look at the comparisons between Australia and the US laws preventing scams. If you take the time to learn you see that Australia stamps out all possibilities for the resort itself to be a purveyor of scams. They have high regulations protecting their citizens from scams. Timeshare scams still happen, but to a lower degree.

In general the advice we give people is to just keep an eye out for the proof that is clearly in front of you in regards to timeshare scams. Look at the quality of a company and its website. Does the website look like it was a rush job? Is the website full of content? Do you get a feeling that the website is a front operation for larger scams? Do a simple google search and see if others purport them as scams. However, only give but so much credence to these review sites because many times they are fronts to do damage to competitors who are actually not scams. If you convince everyone that everyone is one of those scams, then you will never be able to tell the difference, allowing these scams to operate freely.
