Schedule your FREE Consultation to CANCEL your Timeshare HERE

With many complaints being filed every day, timeshare laws are getting more rigid, however, timeshare resale scams are becoming more planned and sophisticated. Now, one of the largest timeshare scams is perpetuated in Mexico.  

Timeshare resales are the order of the day when it comes to timeshare scams. Every year, thousands of people are defrauded by several timeshare resale companies, which disappear after a while. 

Timeshare scams take millions of dollars, leaving many timeshare owners in a critical financial situation.

There’s no smoke without fire, and if there is bad news about something, such as complaints and deceits, it's better if you stay away from it.  

One of the reasons people keep falling for these scams is that timeshare salespeople are experts at lying —they can lie straight to your face without feeling any bad conscience.

Therefore, it is important that you try not to let yourself be dazzled by overly realistic promises. Grand Weeks VIP is one of the latest and biggest scams.

Grand Weeks VIP

Grand Weeks VIP is a vacation package.  Timeshare owners are the biggest targets of this scam. This fraud is mostly executed in Cabo San Lucas, a popular beach destination located in Mexico.

The salesperson invites the potential victims to a timeshare presentation in Cabo Viejo. The salespeople claim to the owners that they can sell their timeshare for impressively large amounts of money.

Part of the deal is that you need to buy a “membership,” which you can use to stay at several luxury resorts for very reasonable rates.

This membership costs about $2000.00 USD plus some additional fees. After you buy the membership, you are promised you will receive the payment for your timeshare within 60-90 days, of course, that never happens.

Once you pay the requested amount, another company involved claims you must pay $700.00 USD. At the same time, an escrow company asks for $875.00 for closing costs and then another $800.00 USD for attorney’s fees.

Companies involved:

Essential Resorts LTD: Essential Resorts is the Travel Club that will supposedly buy your timeshare. This Company had an F rating on the BBB, but is no longer accredited.

They claim to be part of the Sabre Travel Network, even though they are not.

Contact names: Raul Mendez, Cindy Watts, Julian Rosenthal

This is a very sophisticated and well planned scam. Costumers should be cautious and know all the details about this fraud.
