The scam artists would call timeshare owners claiming that they could quickly find buyers for the owners’ timeshares and would allegedly trick consumers into paying large up-front fees ranging from $200 to more than $8,000. They were reportedly using the con of stating that they had a buyer waiting for the property at an inflated price- then requiring the timeshare owner to pay the upfront fee. After paying the upfront timeshare marketing fee, the victims reported that no sale ever occurred and that they were unable to obtain a refund from the fraudulent reseller.
The report also states that the defendants called hundreds of thousands of consumers between November 2009 and November 2010 whose phone numbers are on the FTC’s Do Not Call Registry.
