Description

With the recent crackdown on timeshare resellers, self-proclaimed timeshare advocates or recovery firms are ready to fill the void. These newly formed businesses claim they can recover the money you paid to slick marketers who promised to sell your timeshare but never delivered a buyer. Do these firms really earn their fee or is it just another way to profit from unhappy timeshare owners? The BBB has found that most "timeshare advocate" and recovery firms sell self-help information; often in the form of demand letters that you send to the offending timeshare resale company in an attempt recover your fees. While some of these advocates claim to have an attorney on stand-by, don't be fooled into believing that you are receiving legal representation. While the form letter may have been drafted by an attorney, the company's salespeople are quick to mention that they aren't giving you legal advice. While the advocates may claim a success rate or guaranteed results, the resale listing company probably did as well. In this case, after paying a hefty up-front fee you may be required to do most of the work yourself. Many timeshare resale firms are no longer in business. While some were closed down for illegal practices others reorganized and continue to prey on timeshare owners with a new name and pitch.
