Deceitful Timeshare Fees

Millions of timeshare owners all over the world are receiving maintenance and special assessment fees from the timeshare companies that scammed them into buying the “Dream Vacation”.

How to get rid of timeshares

When it comes to get rid of a timeshare, consumers have very few options. The options they do have are in three separate categories, which are as follows:

1. Selling a timeshare:
Selling a timeshare is a very difficult process. Timeshares have no real value and are a luxury item. Timeshare owners who want to sell have a very difficult time finding a legitimate company that can help them. There are many companies who claim they can sell their timeshare for them but require some sort of listing or marketing fee to get the job done. These companies are generally scam companies that make all sorts of false claims, enticing the consumer to pay their fee for a hefty profit on their properties. BEWARE OF THESE COMPANIES THEY ARE SCAMS!

2. Transferring a timeshare:
Transferring a timeshare is a valid option for the timeshare owner to give their timeshare to another person or company. If they are transferring their timeshare there are usually a resort transfer fee. This fee can vary from 50 to 500 dollars. If you transfer to a company that claims they will take the deed from you they usually will charge between three thousand and five thousand dollars. If you decide to use one of these companies thoroughly research them to make sure they are legitimate, and remember a timeshare CANNOT BE TRANSFERRED IF THERE IS A MORTGAGE.

3. Cancelling a timeshare contract:
Cancelling a timeshare contract is an option for a consumer who believes they are a victim of timeshare fraud or misrepresentation. A timeshare contract can be cancelled after the stated rescission period if it was purchased under false or misleading circumstances. The majority of the timeshare owners today purchased timeshare under some form of misrepresentations. At Timeshare-Answers we specialize in timeshare contract cancellation and help timeshare victims cancel their timeshare and recover their money. If you believe you fall into this category give Timeshare-Answers a call today and find out the truth about your timeshare purchase.

Timeshare Reviews

Timeshare reviews are a very important part of the timeshare cancellation process.
Reviewing what other consumer’s difficulties have been with your timeshare resort can help you make a smart, informed decision. Timeshare reviews can be as simple as what the resort activities include or a more detailed review of the sales process. All of these reviews can give a detailed look into what consumer problems may be and if there is a pattern of similar issues. These patterns can be instrumental in helping you to cancel your purchase.

Is Timeshare-Answers a Scam?

Timeshare-Answers is a professional consumer advocacy company offering assistance to timeshare owners who have fallen victim to timeshare scams.
Whether the resort or a resale company scammed the timeshare owner we have the answers to your questions.

Thousands of timeshare owners buy timeshares every year based on outright lies and false promises from the resort. Here are some basics.

Examples of common misrepresentations during the purchase of a timeshare:

• Being told that canceling a timeshare contract within rescission is not possible.
• Being told they have a resale department in the event you want to sell your property/points.
• Informed the resort was pet friendly and later finding out pets are not allowed.
• Exaggerated claims that induced the purchase of the timeshare.
• Not being informed of exchange fees and being told that you can travel freely at any time to any place.
• Not being made aware of maintenance fees or that your fees will increase.
• Not being informed of potential assessments as the property ages or that you may be responsible for additional dues when other timeshare owners have backed out of their timeshare.
• Summoned to a meeting under the facade it is a mandatory “owners” meeting only to be pressured and sold an upgrade.
• Not being able to use your timeshare, with the resort citing that nothing is available or you do not have enough points.
• Not being informed of the time period in which you can cancel your timeshare

Timeshare Fraud

Many timeshare owners have been sold timeshares under false pretenses. With today’s economy at an all-time low, resort companies and their sales representatives are using unscrupulous tactics to sell their timeshares. In 8 out of 10 timeshare sales we have found the purchaser has been told multiple lies during their sales presentation and purchase.
Some of these lies or so common that they are repeated over and over to consumers, presented as fact, which gets them to sign on the dotted line. It is not until after their rescission period that the truth is uncovered. We here at Timeshare-Answers call this is TIMESHARE FRAUD. The definition of fraud is
“1. Wrongful or criminal deception intended to result in financial or personal gain.
2. A person or thing intended to deceive others, typically by unjustifiably claiming or being credited with accomplishments or qualities.”

Some of the most common TIMESHARE FRAUD misrepresentations are as follows:
1. Told you can sell or rent the timeshare for a profit.
2. Travel anytime and anywhere.
3. Resort would buy it back if you’re unsatisfied.
4. The timeshare would appreciate like real estate.
5. Could refinance once you returned home from your vacation at a much lower interest rate.
6. The price you are buying the timeshare for would no longer be valid once you leave the resort.
7. The timeshare is a tax write off.
8. You must be present at a yearly owner updates. (Where of course they try to sell you more timeshare with more lies)
9. All of the timeshare resorts are pet friendly.
10. Maintenance and taxes would never change.
