Protection from Timeshare Scams

Protection from Timeshare Scams

Unfortunately, seniors are often the target of timeshare scams.  Before you get into a timeshare investment nightmare, consider this solid advice.

Follow these important tips so you don’t fall for a timeshare scam:

  1. Never deal with anyone who contacts you first

  2. Never pay upfront to sell your timeshare

  3. Never pay anyone to anyone to get you out of a timeshare, except a vetted attorney

  4. Don’t buy more timeshare because the salesperson claims it will save you on annual maintenance fees

  5. Don’t fall for unsubstantiated claims that your children or grandchildren will be forced to inherit your timeshare unless you upgrade, buy more or convert to timeshare points

About the Author

Lisa Ann Schreier

Lisa Ann Schreier has been involved in the timeshare community since 1998. After cutting her teeth as a timeshare salesperson and manager at a number of Orlando area resorts, she grew increasingly frustrated with the antiquated marketing and high pressure sales techniques that were (and sadly still are) the norm in the industry. Seeking to be a catalyst for positive change, she wrote ‘Surviving A Timeshare Presentation…Confessions From The Sales Table’ and ‘Timeshare Vacations For Dummies.’ She is a frequent contributor to major media outlets and a sought after speaker at consumer advocacy groups. In addition to her articles at Senior.com, she is the lead timeshare advocate at Elliott.org. Her ‘tell it like it is’ blog about timeshare issues is a source of solid information and continues to alert consumers to the myriad of less than reputable companies and practices.
