One of the first things you should do when looking into the possibility of buying a timeshare is to check out the developer that is selling the property. While timeshare companies in Mexico are now subject to Government regulations, you could still fall prey to a deliberate timeshare scam. In fact, scams are by their very nature “unregulated” as they are not legally recognized.
Fortunately for potential timeshare owners at Garza Blanca, this developer is a highly reputable company whose directors have nearly 30 years under their belts in the timeshare industry. You can’t get more legitimate than Garza Blanca Residence Club, primarily because the product is of such high quality and brought about under excellent management. It is also very unlikely that you would meet someone pretending to represent Garza Blanca in order to lure you into a fantasy scam, as Puerto Vallarta is a fairly small city and timeshare sellers would soon discover anyone impersonating a Garza Blanca representative.
Nevertheless, to be on the safe side, only purchase a Garza Blanca timeshare unit at the resort presentation or from a legitimate contact you made at the resort. Do not buy a Garza Blanca timeshare via an Internet site or from a presentation that take place in another venue.
Resale scams are another way that the name of Garza Blanca has been linked to current timeshare scams. However, Garza Blanca Residence Club are unable to offer you protection if you opt to buy from a resale company. Resale fraud is common and there are many cases where owners who bought a Garza Blanca resale found that there were no end of complications. Once such example is when the original owner dies and the resale property falls into dispute with children or next of kin. It gets very messy and you would do much better to avoid resales under pretty much all circumstances.
So, the next time someone mentions the words “Garza Blanca” and “scam” in the same sentence, you will surely note that the scams are related to third parties re-selling or offering to buy your Garza Blanca timeshare, not the actual resort itself. It is easy to fall into the trap of name association, but probing a little further you will find the truth about timeshare scams.
