Getting out of a timeshare contract is not as easy as it sounds. Financial obligations were made and the resort developer will not let you off the hook very easily. Learn the most secure way to unload a timeshare that only gives you headaches.
Thousands of International travelers, particularly from the US and Canada, have fallen victims of timeshare fraud while vacationing in Mexico. Resort developers hire skilled salesmen to represent their timeshares as many different attractive packages, such as financial investments, deeded properties, or vacation clubs, just to increase their sales.
Unfortunately these promises are normally made verbally, and the clients end up being disappointed by their purchase which turned out to be nothing they were promised. In desperation to get rid of their timeshare, they research different options to try to resolve their timeshare fraud issue.
Getting out of timeshare contract option 1
Many timeshare developers sell their timeshare packages as a financial investment. They claim that their properties are in constant demand by travel agents, and that the rentals are guaranteed if the client signs up with one of their affiliated brokers. Most times, these companies do not perform the rental of timeshare weeks and the client is left even more frustrated in the intend of getting out of timeshare contract.

Selling their timeshares to someone else
During the sales presentation, many salesmen will claim that if the client is not completely satisfied, the timeshare developer will buy back the timeshare for an attractive percentage of the fair market value. In reality, timeshare developers do not buy back their timeshares. They may refer the timeshare owner to a third party resale company, who operates in a similar fashion to the rental agencies that collect fees to list the property, and then never follow through on the sale.
We have also heard recently of clients who have listed with a resale company that claims to have a purchase offer from an actual client. Be careful as these resale agents tells the client that they are required to pay the Mexican IVA taxes for the sale into an escrow account. In a matter of days, the client is supposed to receive their payment from the purchaser, and the taxes will be refunded.
This is another form of timeshare scam because escrow accounts do not exist in Mexico. The resale agent takes the thousands of dollars, meant to be paid for taxes, and disappears.
Getting out of timeshare contract option 3
Cancelling a timeshare is a complicated procedure that requires help from people with experience and knowledge. There are several new companies that claim to offer timeshare relief or cancellation for an upfront fee. They may send the client paperwork to transfer the title or complete thecancellation procedure. This paperwork never actually gets processed by the timeshare scam developer. When the client calls the resort, they are still in fact the owner of the timeshare, and they have lost money to the timeshare cancellation company in upfront fees.
If you have already purchased a fraudulent timeshare and are interested in renting, selling or getting out of timeshare contract, here is some advice from our experts at Mexican Timeshare Solutions:
1) Do not make spur of the moment decisions
Large real estate purchases and sales require careful thought and consideration about the financial implications you will incur. Many fraudulent timeshare salespeople conduct high pressure sales presentations and offer one-day only special deals. This is a common sales tactic of ensuring that the purchaser does not take the time to investigate the reputation of the company, or the details of the contract they are signing.
2) Do your research
Do not buy a timeshare or list a timeshare for rental, resale or relief without investigating the company thoroughly. Most of the timeshare companies on our blacklist are there because they have a bad reputation for scamming their customers. If there are few or no complaints online, that is a good sign that the company is reputable. People who have had issues like to share their experience on websites such as complaintsboard.com, ripoffreport.com or squeakywheel.com to ensure that other people do not fall victim totimeshare scam. Check these sites carefully before making a timeshare purchase or listing your property for rentals, resale or cancellation.
3) Never pay upfront fees
Unfortunately the timeshare industry is riddled with scam and fraud companies that are linked with each other. Many of the rental or resale companies that the timeshare developers recommend charge upfront fees, and are another scam. If the company is willing to work on a commission basis for a successful outcome, then they are likely reputable, but if they ask for fees in advance, this is the first sign to walk away.
