Villa del Palmar Resale Scams Uncovered
February 3, 2014
No one wants to be on the receiving end of a scam, and dealing with timeshare resales is a sure way to put yourself at risk of a scam. Over the last few years, resale scams have taken the Internet and timeshare forums by storm, with multiple timeshare resale agents emerging claiming to deal in a lucrative market of timeshare buying and selling.
The first thing to remember about timeshare in general is that it is not an investment like stocks and shares – your investment is not going to make you big returns unless you are lucky enough to keep your timeshare rented throughout the length of your contract – and even in those cases you are not going to get rich overnight. Therefore, anyone claiming to resell your Villa del Palmar timeshare for a price that is too good to be true usually has a catch up their sleeve, like an introduction fee or surveyors charges.
Villa del Palmar resale scammers do not always wait for you to contact them through their adverts on timeshare forums and complaint boards, the big scams target happy timeshare owners too. Often, Villa del Palmar owners who have no intention of selling their timeshare are manipulated into selling their timeshare after receiving a phone call or letter claiming to have an interested party in buying their Villa del Palmar timeshare for a great price. The mild scams will just charge an introduction fee and then disappear, while the bigger scammers can even leave you high and dry with no timeshare to call your own.
In almost all cases, if you really want to sell your Villa del Palmar timeshare and cannot rent it to friends and family, you would be best to look privately for a buyer. In the case that this is not possible, do some good research into reputable agents that only charge commission on the sale and no upfront fees.
The world of timeshare resale is like a mine-field, so beware the scams!
