Tips On Avoiding Timeshare

Holidays There has been an increase in timeshare .plaints. People are .plaining of abuse, timeshare fraud such as shady collection firms like QVC or Quality Vacation Club, high interest rates by financiers re.mended by marketers, .plex Internet advertising scams, and being lured by timeshare representatives using bribes. Other .plaints are escalating maintenance fees, problems with the transfer and disposal of points and weeks, and problems getting selected balanced exchanges from exchange .panies. You could avoid seeking a timeshare refund in the first place by avoiding buying on the spot. Any .pany that pressures you into buying a timeshare on the spot is most likely up to no good. .panies or Resorts (such as Disney) will gladly give you a number to their sales office if they cannot get you to buy then and there, but scam .panies are not likely to take no for an answer. Have a lawyer review the contract. If you are going to be bothered into signing a contract, at least make sure the .pany allows you to have a lawyer review it before you give in and sign on the dotted line. A trained eye will be able to tell in a heartbeat whether a deal is legitimate, so do not leave it up to chance. If the .pany will not give you a copy for your lawyer to examine, odds are they are crooks. Research the .pany. With the emergence of smart phones, this step has never been easier. While listening to the presentation, conduct an internet search on the .pany. Pay attention to any testimonials you .e across. Odds are if this .pany scammed someone before, the victim will have made a public .plaint online. If you are not at the presentation, and are speaking to a sales person over the phone, just use your home .puter. Always read the fine print. This tip even applies to legitimate .panies, but it is especially important when you suspect the deal might be a scam. There might be hidden fees or other such traps in your contract, so be diligent when reading. Do not skip a single word, especially if it is in smaller print. Never pay an up-front fee. If a timeshare resale .pany requires a payment up-front before the timeshare sale is final, walk away. The timeshare resale .pany may call the fee by any number of different names such as an appraisal fee, a market analysis fee, an initial advertising fee, or something similar. If there is any type of fee that requires a prepayment before the timeshare is sold, the consumer is likely to lose that money and never get their timeshare sold. Check with consumer protection agencies. Another important tip is that you should not believe everything timeshare presentations promise. Always be sceptical, particularly avoiding anything that promises you too much too quickly. If you feel you may have been scammed, you need not spend a fortune filing a timeshare law suit. With the increase in timeshare .plaints, Owners Action and International Timeshare Refund Action (ITRA) are offering the opportunity for timeshare owners to participate in a timeshare class action.
