Get Out Of Timeshare
It seems that there are more and more timeshare resale companies popping up in the news lately. Most recently, two Florida timeshare resale companies are headed to court over a lawsuit accusing them of predatory sales practices. Filed by Attorney General Bill McCollum, the lawsuit alleges the companies raked in over $4 million per month. Seeking an injunction, the AG is requesting that all business cease during the court process. For those looking to cancel timeshares, this is news.
The companies in the lawsuit allegedly charged up to $2,500 for timeshare resale advertising services. The suit further alleges that these companies claimed to have a vast network that would allow them to aggressively market the owner’s timeshare. Contrary to the claims made by the resale company, there was no work done, no posts, and no marketing or advertising. The AG basically argues that timeshare owners were conned into a complete scam, giving money over to companies that had no intention of helping.
Now, the lawsuit is still pending, but it’s safe to say that these types of crimes occur in the timeshare industry routinely. There have been recent lawsuits with similar allegations in Boston, Florida, and Orlando, typically ending in a settlement. Timeshare resale companies often prey on the owner’s need to get out of a timeshare contract that is costing them a fortune, usually redweek timeshares which are the timeshare weeks that are highest in demand.
