Another month has gone by and in no time we will be able to say the same about the year 2012. A very busy year for us, at which we look back with great satisfaction.
What has become clear is that there are many consumers out there who have been defrauded or were about to be. We are very glad that in a lot of cases we have been able to avoid worse, and for those who did fall into a trap, provide information and guidelines on how to claim a refund and where to report these frauds.
One wonders though if the whole subject of fraud is something that seems to be more active in the timeshare business than in other businesses. Why are timeshare owners especially vulnerable?
A very delicate situation of which these dubious companies take advantage. New companies see the light on a daily basis, a very worrying statistic!
We think it is still the lack of information that is provided to the timeshare consumers. So many more victims could be avoided if timeshare consumers would be informed about all the different frauds and scams that go around. There would be fewer victims if timeshare owners would ask for information to the experts first before paying a fee or deposit.
But of course they need to know where to find these experts!
We from Mindtimeshare provide updated information, advice and guidelines to as many consumers as we can. The continue flow of inquiries we receive on a daily basis are all handled with care. We aim continue as professional as always and provide the same quality advice to everybody. And don’t forget we provide this advice for free!
But we do need the resorts and other consumer organizations to be aware of our existence and provide the timeshare consumers with our contact details and make them aware of Mindtimeshare.
The more people know the better. With over 1 million timeshare owners in Europe, it should be possible to eradicate these fraudulent companies. The more consumers contact us, the more consumers telling us about new companies’ …less consumers will be defrauded and these companies will no longer be able to survive!
The above does come with a “price” for us though. We hear more often from consumers about companies telling them Mindtimeshare is a fraud or a resale company trying to do their own business. Or that we are disgruntled timeshare employees, or even that we are criminals and currently in prison. We understand that companies that appear on our web are not very “amused” with our findings and research. So we cannot expect them to speak highly of us. But don’t let them confuse you though and always remember who is cold calling you and asking you for money?
We as a professional team will continue to offer our services to the highest standards possible, and all we ask from you is to continue informing us about the calls you receive and make other timeshare owners aware of our existence.
Together we will stand strong in the fight against timeshare fraud!
Having said all this, November turned out to be one of the busiest months in respect of new companies added to the lists. Very difficult to keep up with, but we managed to get all the warnings out there!
