Rating: 4.6/5 - 7 5 0

With a large number of complaints being filed every day, timeshare laws are more getting more rigid, however, timeshare resale scams are becoming more planned andsophisticated. Know one of the largest timeshare scams 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 a big number of 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, is better if you stay away from it.  

One of the reasons people keep falling for these scams is that timeshare salespeople are experts on lying —they can lie straight to your face without feeling any bad conscious— therefore, it is important that you try not to let yourself be dazzled with over 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 target of this scam. This fraud is mostly executed in Cabo San Lucas, a world 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 asked amount, another company involved claims you must pay $700.00 USD, at the same time, an escrow company asks for $875.00 for closing cost, and then another $800.00 USD for attorney’s fees.

    esos vendedores de tiempo compartidos son realmente una molestia, son tan insistentes que no nos dejan alternativas

    They are very hard sell — if you ever happen to find yourself in such a situation, an easy way out is simply to say, “I love the timeshare — I just need my lawyer to look at the contract.” If the try to persuade, all you have to ask is, “is there something in the contract that my lawyer wouldn’t approve of?” This puts them on the defensive and allows you to make an easy escape.

    Grand Weeks is able to talk their way into making people believe that they are legitimate. They have an office to answer phones in San Diego, but are crafty enough to not accept certain types of mail, like from the AG or credit card companies. They currently have a website, but it is only to show other company travel deals, not the discounted condo deals people are lead to purchase in Mexico.

    This company took our money and now we can not get ant response. We got directed to them from Walmart in Cabo. The presentation was at Cabo Viejo. After they tricked us into buying, we sent multiple emails requesting more information and never could get a single response. All of their business cards had whiteout on them. Two of them only had first names. I recommend you avoid Grand Weeks VIP at all costs.
