Timeshare scams are on the rise again
You may have heard that scammers are targeting current members of legitimate timeshare companies such as the Garza Blanca Residence Club and Villa del Palmar Club Caribe as well as potential customers these days. Not only do timeshare scams involve those looking to buy timeshare scams but also the owners of vacation club membership. In order to offer some advice on this topic, I have decided to write this article about the different types of scam that may affect Garza Blanca timeshare members and potential timeshare buyers. However, the information contained in this article is applicable to any genuine timeshare company. Here you will read about the best ways to avoid a Garza Blanca timeshare scam and what to do if you should find yourself the victim of a scam.
Cancelling your Garza Blanca Timeshare
If you are ever contacted by someone who claims to be a lawyer and who says they will be able to cancel your timeshare contract you should be immediately wary! You see, as you will remember being informed no doubt, there is a cooling off period in every timeshare contract and when this ends it is legally binding. This means that it cannot simply be cancelled. Timeshare cancellation scams work on the fact that you will do anything to cancel your timeshare. The scam agents will try to convince you cancelation is legitimate, and may even tell you that this service is free, but they will leave you in a very damaging position. What happens is that you think your Garza Blanca timeshare has been legally canceled, when in fact, you have just defaulted on your payments and will be subject to foreclosure and other proceedings.
Garza Blanca Timeshare Scams and Rental Agents
Those members who might find themselves unable to vacation for a year or two can, of course, bank their points for an extra special vacation at a later date, but many will find themselves needing (or wishing) to rent out their time. When doing so, many use rental agencies; companies who find tenants for timeshares in exchange for commission. The issue is that scammers have cottoned on to this and now impersonate such agencies for financial gain. In order to avoid these fraudsters all you must do is get recommendations from trusted sources as to which agencies to use, and keep in mind that no legitimate agency will ask for an upfront fee – they will take a percentage of earnings as commission.
Buying Garza Blanca Resales and Scams
Resale scams are very hard to track and highly tempting. Con artists and scammers will contact you in order to claim that they have a buyer who is willing to pay huge sums of money for your Garza Blanca timeshare. All you have to do, they say, is pay an introduction fee to make it worth their while giving you the buyer’s contact information. They’ll just take the money and run, of course, but they can be very, very convincing.
What to do next when you have been victim of a Garza Blanca timeshare scam
If you fear you may have been the victim of a Garza Blanca timeshare scam, or a scam at any other vacation club in Mexico, the first thing you should do is inform the timeshare club involved. Be sure to keep a record of all money sent and all communications between yourself and the fraudsters as you’ll need them for the next steps. Secondly, you should contact your state attorney general’s office and the Federal Trade Commission through their Business Fraud Division (the number for which is 1-877-382-4357).
