According to a news released through PRNewswire, Timeshare Attorney Mitchell Reed Sussman reports that scams surrounding timeshare exit companies are becoming more sophisticated as they are asking for money through different ways to get a timeshare owner out of his Timeshare.
“Remember, if you are selling anything, there’s absolutely no reason for you to pay a dime.” Says Sussman, who has been operating as a timeshare cancellation attorney for over ten years. He reports that he has been receiving more emails and calls from worried timeshare owners all over the country who are hoping to sell or get out of their timeshares.
Sussman Warns “Beware of any company that asks you for money to sell your timeshare. You’re the seller. You’re supposed to receive the money.”
He has been a practicing advocate for timeshare owners and has helped many who have been duped by the Timeshare exit industry.
In another Timeshare related news, a woman from Miami Beach who turned to a Timeshare Exit company in hopes of reselling her property was asked to pay $4000. In exchange, the company promised that she will be free of all responsibilities of the timeshare by 90 to 180 days. She was also promised Money Back Guarantee by the company.
Almost two years have passed, she hardly hears from the company and she is still paying the maintenance fee of the Timeshare which has, by the way, increased from $435 to $754 annually!
This case is not unique as Florida Attorney General’s Office says that in 2019 they received 170 complaints from consumers who hired timeshare exit companies.
Consumer experts have been continuously warning consumers to beware because there are many companies that don’t always deliver and are running the scam programs.
