As in most instances of timeshare based fraud- there are generally upfront fees that are required (these may be hidden in a contract that requires you to "purchase" a vacation club membership from the company- a contract that normally forgets to mention anything about the cancellation of your existing ownership).
I was just told of such a group operating out of Myrtle Beach (the company is comprised of a few "former" Wyndham sales weasels who evidently have somehow kept access to their buyer and prospect lists). This group in particular just charged a 89 yr old man more than $40,000 for what he thought to be legal representation that would get his Florida timeshare mortgage cancelled. What he ended up with, is a vacation club membership- and another bill to pay..
The Florida Bar Association has the right to investigate the unlicensed practice of law in the state of Florida.
If you believe that you have been solicited by a con artist who illegally offered to provide you with "representation" against your Florida timeshare developer for breach or contract or misrepresentation during the sales presentation, you may want to file a complaint with the Florida Bar Association at the link below:
This link may also be used to report "timeshare closing companies" that illegally prepare deeds for timeshare resorts located in the state of Florida. If you believe that you have been victimized by an unlicensed closing agent who prepared a deed for a Florida property- the online complaint form for the Unlicensed Practice of Law may give you the ability to help shut them down.
Hopefully this will give timeshare owners another way to fight back against timeshare scams...
