Mexico Timeshare Fraud Rip Off ~ Consumer Travel Alert.
by David Popoff, Connecticut Realtor
Unfortunately when we travel we tend to let down our barriers, ignore common sense, tend to be too trusting and this is what many of these timeshare scams/rip-off take advantage of. A second point is that foreign countries tend not to have the same laws as in the USA, Canada and Europe and this is another advantage that the ‘bad’ timeshare groups take advantage of. Another alarming statistic is that these timeshare scams are becoming more prolific and you are beginning to find them in many countries such as Mexico, Caribbean Island, Bahama Islands, Costa Rica and other Central American countries. Simple Google “Your destination Timeshare scam” (i.e. “Country/Destination/resort name Timeshare scam”).
Note there are many good and well managed timeshare groups out there in the USA and internationally so…..
If you do want to purchase a timeshare do your research, homework before you go on vacation!!! If you really want to buy a time share check out one of the many USA websites that re-sells timeshares usually at much lower costs with savings up to 50% to 90% of original price.(such as Tug2.net, Redweek.com, timeshare-resale.com, tugbbs.com, ... more
