Apart from many companies cold calling and offering claims against the resorts, or even the exchange companies, we also see an increase in the so-called Recovery Room Fraud.
This type of fraud is a method where scammers contact victims of previous frauds (often by cold calling) and claim to be able to recover previously lost funds.
When these fraudsters target victims of timeshare frauds they usually claim to be a legal professional or a representative of a government agency (normally within the country where the original timeshare property was based) in order to appear legitimate.
Fraudsters already know personal information
The fraudsters know personal details about the victim and their previous dealings with other bogus companies, which gives them credibility. They claim that the advanced fees requested are for “local taxes’ or ‘litigation costs’ incurred during the recovery of the funds.
It is suspected that the persons behind these kinds of fraudulent set ups are often the same people involved in the original scams even though these crimes may have occurred years earlier.
Please do not fall into this trap!
If you receive a cold call, with whatever offer related to your timeshare or Holiday ownership, do contact us and we can provide information about the company or check them out.
