The release claims the defendants allegedly made unsolicited telephone calls to consumers nationwide claiming to have ready buyers and renters willing to pay a specified price for consumers’ timeshare properties. Additionally, the company claimed to be able to guarantee sales and rentals of those timeshares. The defendants collected upfront fees from consumers ranging from $595 to more than $4,000, and purportedly did not have buyers or renters lined up to pay any price for consumers’ timeshares.
The Attorney General’s Office received more than 85 consumer complaints alleging losses totaling more than $110,000. The lawsuit filed in the Ninth Judicial Circuit Court in Orange County seeks a permanent injunction, civil penalties in the amount of $10,000 per violation, disgorgement of profits, consumer restitution and attorney’s fees.
