At Go Away Timeshare, we want all of our clients to know that what we are doing for them when it comes to getting rid of their timeshare is ethical, legal, and right for them. However, not all timeshare exit companies are as transparent as us and have scammed many consumers in the process. Fortunately, we are here to help you avoid those scams and save yourself the money, time, and headache in the process. Here are a few ways that you can get rid of your timeshare without getting scammed.
Always do your research – This goes for really any situation that involves your money, but it is crucial to do your research on a company that says they can get rid of your timeshare for you. One of the best places to go for research is the Better Business Bureau because they will provide any customer complaints or issues that the company has had in the past few years. Another place to research this kind of information is the attorney general’s office for the state that the company is in to see if there have been any complaints against the organization. The last thing you should ever do is ask your resort. They will simply refer you to a resell company in an effort to appease you. This is their way of keeping you “in the fold.”
Be cautious of specific forms of payment required by the company – One of the most significant red flags when it comes to determining if a timeshare company is legitimate is the type of payment they expect from their clients. One of the easiest ways that a company can scam you when you are looking to get rid of your timeshare is the type of payment you give them. Specific forms of payment like money orders, cash, and wiring money are common ways in which a company can scam you because they are tough to trace. If you do have a bad feeling about the company’s payment options, ask the company whether they accept credit card, as consumer credit card companies can get your money back in a fraudulent transaction or dispute the charge. If the company does take credit card ask, “Will my credit card receipt have your company name on it?” If not, do not do business with them. It is best to determine that the method of payment you are using with a company is safe, secure, and able to have a paper trail behind it.
