Avoid Timeshare Resale Scams: Don’t pay upfront fees, used licensed brokers

paradise-timeshare-officeA federal grand jury in California returned a 22-count indictment May 6, 2016 against three men,  charging them with wire fraud and conspiracy to commit wire fraud in relation to a timeshare-resale scheme.

The scam was based in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico. One of the men arrested conducted sales meetings to convince prospective customers to purchase a timeshare vacation package marketed under the names Platinum Access Program or World Luxury Destinations. If customers had existing timeshare properties, the suspect assured them that another company, Continental Resources, would arrange for their sale. When the customers returned from Mexico, they were contacted by another suspect who claimed to represent companies named Property Marketing Group or Eagle Market Solution and claiming that a bona-fide purchaser had been found and was ready to purchase their existing timeshares.

Like so many recent scams, the suspects would then extract a series of upfront payments from the victims, which they claimed were required to be wired to bank accounts in Mexico in order for the guaranteed sale to be completed.

If convicted, the three men face a maximum statutory penalty of 20 years in prison and a $250,000 fine
