How can you tell who to trust?

Specially when you’ve been scammed.

Most of the timeshare owners who contact us feel like their trust have been compromised at some point.

They ask us: ‘How do I know I can trust this company or association?’ or ‘How do I know I can trust you?’

Timeshare owners are scared to trust again. How can they assess how much they should trust someone?

shutterstock_250176199In live, one of the most important decisions you make is deciding who to trust. Trusting the wrong person, company or association can result in abusive relationship, financial losses and many more undesirable outcomes.

The undeniable truth is that you all have reasons not to trust. You’ve all felt hurt, rejected, disappointed, scammed… and you are trying to avoid that happening again.

Now, having working in this specific area for 12 years, I’ve learned that even more the existing ‘timeshare consumer associations’ are less interested in helping than in manipulating you into agreeing with them about how ‘the world’ should be.  A insulting goal since managers of these ‘timeshare consumer associations’ have spent little time in this ‘specific area’.

Every year, hundreds of timeshare owners are victims of fraud and they look for advice. So, how do they figure out whom and how much to trust?

How can you make better choices about whom to trust?

  • Take time to think. Do not make important decisions on impulse. Consult with a friend or Google before acting.
  • Before trusting a person, company or association, try to determine how often he or she is correct. Visit their websites, read their blogs. You will find what kind of person, company or association is.
  • It is very important to detect if a person, company or association acts justly even when it’s inexpedient. This especially happens when the person, company or association has much to gain by acting against your interest and you’re unlikely to detect it.

We get that you’ve been hurt, but we want you that no matter what, you are going to be ok.

Have a nice weekend.

    My advice – if they cold call you, don’t trust them! Ask them for their name, their company name, address and phone number and say you will get back to them after you have done a thorough Google search (other search engines are available!) on them to see if they are associated with any known scams.

    • This is a good point, Chris.

      Do you know that we publish a monthly report listing all cold callers targeting timeshare owners?
      This list should be the ‘bedside book’ to all timeshare owner.

      Have a nice weekend.

    I have found it impossible to trust anyone. In the last four years I have used two firms of solicitors to obtain refunds for me and both failed miserably. In future I will determine never to get into such a situation that a refund is necessary by simply not entering into any new contracts.

    • Hi John,

      Rather than thinking: ‘Can I trust that company?’ you would think: ‘Can I trust myself to take care of myself with that company? If the answer is no, then it might be time for you to cease putting energy into that company.
      We will email you to see if we can help you.
