Thank you to the Better Business Bureau for this important story.

These scam artists are getting more and more aggressive with their tactics.  Do not fall for the scheme where you are asked to pay an upfront fee because they have a seller ready to buy your timeshare. If they were legitimate real estate brokers, they would get a listing and get paid from the BUYER’S funds held in escrow when the sales transaction closes. Here is a recognized resource to confirm if a real estate agent is licensed:

Ask for references, do your research and look for reviews from reputable organizations like the Better Business Bureau.  Remember the old adage that if it sounds too good to be true, it probably is. For example, timeshare sellers should always beware of tricks and false promises.

You can trust the attorneys at The Abrams Firm.  With more than 15 years of experience in consumer protection law focusing on timeshare divestment our  law firm can offer a low cost $2000 timeshare divestment (to cancel a timeshare contract) or you may choose to litigate  (see the current lawsuits you can join) seeking damages to get your money back and punitive damages for a low cost, all-inclusive transparent flat fee against a multimillion or billion-dollar resort.
