Mexico Timeshare Scams & Complaints

There are several different types of Mexico timeshare scams and complaints to be aware of. Some scams happen before you buy a timeshare in Mexico and other scams happen after you buy the timeshare.

Mexico Timeshare Scams Before You Buy a Timeshare

To start, most timeshares can be considered a poor value when bought from a resort developer directly. It doesn’t matter if the timeshare is in Mexico, Canada or the United States. When you buy a timeshare from a resort developer directly, it almost always decreases in value by 50 – 90% the second it is purchased. This happens because a significant portion of the purchase price goes towards paying the sales staff commission, the sales facilities and the free gifts used to lure vacationers into the timeshare tour. There are not many products on earth that immediately decrease in value by several thousand dollars the second they are purchased. While this might not be considered a scam, it is certainly a poor value.

If you finance the timeshare through the resort developer directly, there is a good chance you’ll be paying a very high interest rate above 10% as well. Again, this isn’t necessarily a scam because it is disclosed to you in the timeshare documents, but it is certainly not a good value.

A timeshare becomes a scam when a sales agent chooses to lie to you about what a timeshare is and how it can be used. For example, a timeshare is not an investment, and if a sales agent chooses to tell you that it is, they are attempting to scam you because that is simply not true. Almost all timeshares do not go up in value after being purchased from a resort developer directly.

We’ve heard of some timeshare sales agents in Mexico telling current timeshare owners that they will buy their current timeshare if they buy a Mexico timeshare instead. The current timeshare owners believe this and buy the Mexico timeshare, and later find out that they still own their current timeshare. Any time a timeshare sales agent lies, it can be considered a scam, so watch out for this one.

If you really want to buy a timeshare in Mexico, a resale timeshare from a current owner will almost always be a better value. Timeshare resales in Mexico can be found on Ebay for as little as $1. Some sellers are even offering to pay the first year’s maintenance fees just so they can get rid of the timeshare, which would mean a free vacation for you the first year.

Mexico Timeshare Scams After You Buy a Timeshare

Mexico timeshare scams after you already own a timeshare have been popping up recently. A company by the name of Global Business Consultants is calling many Mexican timeshare owners and offering them a ridiculously high price for their timeshare. The company calls timeshare owners out of the blue and says they will buy your timeshare at a high price, but you will need to wire them a few thousand dollars for a “transfer fee” or “closing fee” first. When you wire them the money, they will not buy your timeshare and will instead pocket your money and disappear. This is one of the oldest scams in the book and it takes a variety of forms.

Another form of this Meixco timeshare scam is often performed by “listing” or “advertising” companies that offer to “advertise” your Mexican timeshare for you in exchange for an up-front advertising fee. You’ll pay the up-front advertising fee, and your timeshare will likely not sell. Again, many Mexican timeshares can be found on Ebay for as little as $1, so paying several hundred dollars in an attempt to sell your Mexican timeshare for more than $1 is not a good idea. Advertising your timeshare for sale on Ebay is only a few dollars.

If you’d like to get rid of your Mexican timeshare and are unable to sell it, you may want to contact your resort to see if they will take it back. If the Mexican resort won’t take the timeshare back, you may want to speak with a timeshare exit company. Timeshare exit companies work with lawyers to get your timeshare cancelled.

If you choose to speak with a timeshare exit company to cancel your timeshare, we typically recommend choosing one that offers an escrow payment option for extra piece of mind. When you pay with escrow, the timeshare exit company does not get paid in full until after your timeshare has been cancelled. Learn more about escrow and why it’s important here.

Legitimate Companies That Buy Timeshares

If you own a timeshare that you no longer want, you may be looking for reputable and legitimate companies that buy timeshares. Your search will be very difficult because very few companies want to buy a timeshare. Most charities won’t even want your timeshare if you were to offer it to them for free.

The reason for this is that timeshare is not an investment like traditional real estate. It typically does not go up in value after you purchase it. It’s more like a new car where it loses value the second it is purchased. Unlike a new car that retains some of its value, a timeshare often doesn’t retain any of its value unless it is Disney Vacation Club or a high value timeshare in Hawaii.  

Need some proof? Head over to Ebay and do a search for “timeshare.” You will likely see hundreds of timeshares being advertised for sale for as little as a $1 with no bids. If all these timeshares are advertised for a dollar and no one is buying them on the resale market, why would a company want to buy one from you? Charities don’t want them for free because they don’t want to be on the hook for the rising maintenance fees.

An old timeshare resale scam involves a random person / company calling you out of the blue and offering you a high amount to purchase your timeshare. This person will usually offer you more than the amount that you originally paid for your timeshare to get you excited. Once you’ve agreed to sell your timeshare to them, they will ask for a bogus fee to cover a “transfer fee” or a “paperwork fee”. You’ll pay this bogus fee and the company will disappear with your money and never buy your timeshare. A company by the name of Global Business Consultants is currently running this scam as of 11/25/19.

Many timeshare resale scams operate the same way. Timeshare resale companies will make you believe that your timeshare has value, and all you need to do is pay them an up-front “listing” or “advertising” fee to sell the timeshare. Once you pay the up-front “listing” or “advertising” fee, there is a very good chance that no one will ever buy the timeshare and you will be out the “listing” or “advertising” fee.

The safest way to sell your timeshare is through a licensed real estate broker because brokers are not allowed to charge an up-front fee to sell your timeshare. However, timeshare brokers work on commission, so if your timeshare has no value, as many do not, a timeshare broker will not have an incentive to sell your timeshare.

So, rather than looking for reputable companies that buy timeshares, you may want to reach out to a timeshare exit company instead. These companies work with lawyers to cancel your timeshare and stop your future fees. These companies do not buy timeshares or advertise your timeshare for sale. They work best if you fee you were lied to during the timeshare sales presentation. We typically like to recommend timeshare exit companies that offer an escrow payment option, so the timeshare exit company does not get paid until after your timeshare has been cancelled. Learn more about escrow and why it’s important here.

Before working with a timeshare exit company, give your resort a call and see if they will take it back. Sometimes a resort developer will take the timeshare back if you agree to pay them the equivalent of one- or two-year’s maintenance fees and are current on maintenance fees and don’t owe a mortgage. Giving the timeshare back to the resort will always be cheaper than working with a timeshare exit company. Typically, a timeshare exit company will charge more than $2,000 for its services. Be careful when talking to your resort developer because they will likely try to sell you more timeshare rather than help you cancel your current timeshare.

Timeshare Law Team Review

Timeshare Law Team is another timeshare exit company that may be able to relieve you of your timeshare. The company is located in either Fort Lauderdale, FL, Irving, TX or Myrtle Beach, SC. The address on the Timeshare Law Team website is:

2598 EAST SUNRISE BLVD

FORT LAUDERDALE, FL 33304

But a quick Google search shows this address as a virtual office. A search for the company’s phone number brings up a BBB page for a company by the name of Resort Placement Services that lists Timeshare Law Team and Resort Exit Group as an alternate business name. The address for Resort Placement Services is in Irving, TX and the address for Resort Exit Group is Myrtle Beach, SC.

When reviewing Timeshare Law Team’s homepage, the first thing that stands out to us is the mention of a “money-back guarantee.” All timeshare exit companies offer a “100% money back guarantee” or a “100% satisfaction guarantee”, but this doesn’t really mean anything at all. If there is a money back guarantee, that means the exit company would like for you to pay them upfront for its cancellation service.

We like to recommend timeshare exit companies that offer an escrow payment option so the timeshare exit company isn’t paid in full until after the timeshare is cancelled. Learn more about escrow and why it’s important here.

Moving over to the testimonials page and we see several positive testimonials. Many testimonials mention Resort Exit Group rather than Timeshare Law Team even though we are on the Timeshare Law Team website, so Resort Exit Group is likely the primary name of this business.

It’s important to look at reviews of a company outside of its own website because most companies only display positive reviews on their own website. We can’t find any reviews for Timeshare Law Team, but there are a few for Resort Exit Group.

Timeshare Law Team Reviews (Resort Exit Group Reviews)

Resort Exit Group reviews on the BBB are all very positive. The company has an A+ rating with the BBB as well. We are not able to find any other Resort Exit Group reviews or Timeshare Law Team reviews online.

Timeshare Law Team Cost (Resort Exit Group Cost)

Like all timeshare exit companies, the Timeshare Law Team cost and Resort Exit Group cost are not available online. You’ll need to contact the company directly to obtain a quote for its services.

Summary

While the reviews for Timeshare Law Team and Resort Exit Group are positive, the company does not mention an escrow payment option anywhere on its website. Our recommendation is to consider a timeshare company with an escrow payment option so the company has an incentive to complete the cancellation of your timeshare. You do not want to pay an exit company up front only to find out later that they’ve taken your money and never cancelled your timeshare. Learn more about escrow and why it’s important here.

TS Elimination Review

TS Elimination is yet another company that claims it can help you get out of your timeshare. The company has been in business since 2015 and is located in Las Vegas, NV.

When reviewing the homepage the first thing that stands out to us is the mention of a 100% guarantee. TS Elimination promises to get you out of your timeshare or give you 100% of your money back. If TS Elimination promises to give you your money back, the company must want you to pay them up front before canceling your timeshare.

We here at TimeshareExitCompanies.com like to recommend timeshare exit companies that allow timeshare owners to pay using an escrow payment option so the timeshare exit company does not get paid from the escrow account until after your timeshare is cancelled. Learn more about escrow and why it’s important here.

Heading over to the FAQ page and nothing alarming stands out. The company says it typically takes 3 to 9 months to cancel a timeshare with no mortgage and if you owe a mortgage it typically takes longer. This is in-line with other timeshare exit companies in the industry.

The testimonials page is filled with positive testimonials which is great but doesn’t really mean anything. It is extremely rare for a company to post negative testimonials on its website. That is why it is typically better to look at third party review websites.

 TS Elimination Reviews

TS elimination reviews on the BBB are positive. The company has 48 reviews with 5 complaints as of 11/15/19. There are a few negative reviews on the BBB, but all have an answer from TS Elimination. Negative reviews typically relate to customers claiming TS Elimination did not return their call. There is also a negative review on a site called Complaints Base but it is difficult to verify the authenticity of this anonymous negative review.

TS Elimination Cost & Fees

TS Elimination costs are not available online. This is very common in the timeshare exit industry. No company displays its costs online. However, sometimes a cost can be found by reading reviews of others. In this case, we see one person on the BBB mention that it costs $9,000 for them to get rid of their timeshare with TS Elimination. Another customer mentions paying $5,645.

Summary

Overall, our recommendation does not change. We recommend working with a timeshare exit company that offers an escrow payment option. When you pay with escrow, the timeshare cancellation company does not get paid until after your timeshare is cancelled. Learn more about escrow and why it’s important here.

Heartland Transfer Review

Heartland Transfer is a timeshare exit company located in Crown Point, IN that may be able to help with your timeshare exit. The company has been in business since 2012 and is the same company as Go Away Timeshare that we previously reviewed.

Having a look at the homepage of their website and a few things stand out. Under “The Truth About Timeshare” headline we see that the company says, “the only place timeshare gets sold is in those high-pressure timeshare presentations.” This is sort of true, but some timeshares are in fact sold on the timeshare resale market quite frequently. For example, Disney Vacation Club is a great timeshare product that is commonly sold on the resale market. Some timeshares in Hawaii are also commonly sold on the resale market as well.

Moving over to the “What’s my timeshare worth?” headline and we see that Heartland Transfer recommends timeshare owners go to Ebay and Craigslist to get an idea of how much their timeshare is worth. This is good advice that we also recommend. If other timeshare owners are advertising their units at the same resort that you own at for $1 on Ebay and Craigslist and no one is bidding, then you have a good idea of how much your timeshare is worth on the resale market (hint – likely nothing).

Moving down the homepage and looking at the section under “Some of the companies we have worked with…”, we see that Heartland Transfer claims it has worked with timeshare resort developers including Wyndham, Westgate, RCI, Marriott, and Holiday Inn. Heartland displays the logo of these timeshare resort developers on its website, which is generally not a good idea because it can get them sued.

Heading over to the testimonials page and we see a video “testimonial” that isn’t really a testimonial. Instead, it is a video of timeshare owners who have just signed up with Heartland Transfer at one of Heartland’s in-person seminars. Hate to break it you Heartland Transfer, but it’s not a testimonial if you haven’t performed any services for your new client yet.

Moving over to the About page and we see one of the company’s owners talking about the story behind Heartland Transfer. Similar to the story on the Go Away Timeshare website, the owners bought a timeshare and had difficulty getting rid of it. They eventually figured out how to get rid of their timeshare and then opened a timeshare exit company to help others get out as well.

Heartland Transfer Cost

Like virtually all timeshare exit companies in existence, the Heartland Transfer cost is not available only. If you’re looking for Heartland Transfer cost and fees, you’ll need to give them a call.

Heartland Transfer Reviews

Heartland Transfer reviews around on the Internet are mix of positive and negative. The company has an A+ on the BBB as well as 35 positive reviews, but there is one negative review on Yelp and one negative review on Google as of 10/10/19. The negative Google review complains of poor communication and the negative Yelp review mentions that that the 100% money-back guarantee is worthless. There also seems to be some negative reviews on a website called Revdex where owners complain of an attorney Heartland Transfer previously worked with. It appears that Heartland no longer works with this attorney, so this is likely not a big deal in 2019.

Overall, our recommendation does not change. We like to recommend timeshare exit companies that offer an escrow payment option, so they don’t get paid until after the timeshare is cancelled. Learn more about escrow and why it’s important here.

Global Business Consultants Timeshare Scam

This is a short blog post to warn timeshare owners about a new timeshare scam being carried out by a company calling themselves Global Business Consultants. The company has an F on the BBB along with 3 complaints.

According to online reviews and customers who have contacted us, Global Business Consultants contacts timeshare owners out of the blue and offers them a ridiculously high price for their timeshare. Usually, this scam is used for timeshares in Mexico. Global Business Consultants will tell you to wire them money for some sort of international transfer fee, and then your timeshare will be sold. This will not happen. You will transfer the fee, and never hear from them again.

This is the oldest scam in the book when it comes to timeshare resales. The truth is, most timeshares lose most of their value the second they are purchased. Timeshare is not an investment. This is why you can find many timeshares on for sale by owner sites like Ebay for sale for $1 with no one buying them.

Because timeshares are so difficult to sell, many owners have turned to timeshare exit companies to cancel their timeshare. These companies work with lawyers to get your timeshare cancelled. For more information on how to cancel your timeshare with a timeshare exit company, initiate live chat, submit a contact form on the right side of the page or give us a call.

Preferred Cancellation Services Review

Preferred Cancellation Services is another timeshare exit company that may be able to help you cancel your timeshare. The company has been in business since 2014 and is based in Daytona Beach, FL.

When reviewing the company’s homepage, we see that PCS does not use lawyers to cancel your timeshare. Instead, the company claims that its process can get timeshare owners out of their timeshares without costly attorneys. This is becoming more common in the timeshare exit industry, so it’s not necessarily a red flag. However, the following statement made on Preferred Cancellation Services’ homepage is a red flag:

 “If we do not get you released within one years time you will receive a full refund at that time upon request”

This means timeshare owners must pay Preferred Cancellation Services up front to cancel their timeshare. We here at TimeshareExitCompanies.com do not like timeshare owners paying a timeshare exit or resale companies up front because the company could take your money and never cancel or sell your timeshare and never provide you with a refund. Just because a company says it will give you a refund doesn’t mean it will.

We typically recommend that timeshare owners use an escrow payment option when cancelling their timeshare. When you pay with escrow, the timeshare exit company is not paid in full until after your timeshare has been cancelled. Learn more about escrow and why it’s important here.

Heading over to the FAQ page and we see one thing that we like. Under question 6, the company states that getting money back after a timeshare cancellation is a rarity. We agree with this statement. Sometimes timeshare exit companies claim they can get you money back after cancelling your timeshare, but this is almost always NOT the case.

Heading over the Our Attorney page and we see that PCS works with a lawyer by the name of Richard J. D’Amico, Esq. The company makes it clear that this lawyer does not represent its clients, but instead represents PCS instead. Either way, this lawyer does not have any notable negative reviews that we could find.

Preferred Cancellation Services Reviews

As of 7/29/19, Preferred Cancellation Services reviews on Google are quite positive. 36 people praise the company’s services. The reviews look legitimate enough. We did find one negative review on the company’s BBB page under their LLC name of Windham Ventures LLC, but the review was addressed and responded to by PCS.

Preferred Cancellation Services Cost

Like all timeshare exit companies, the Preferred Cancellation Services cost is not available online. The only way to obtain the company’s cost is to contact the company for a consultation.

Summary

Overall, our recommendation does not change. Although Preferred Cancellation Services looks like a legitimate company from the outside, you never really know what’s going on behind the scenes. This is why we like to recommend using a timeshare exit company that offers an escrow payment option. Escrow can protect you if the company goes out of business or takes your money and never cancels your timeshare. Learn more about escrow and why it’s important here.

Timeshare Cancel Center Review

Timeshare Cancel Center is another timeshare exit company that may be able to help you cancel your timeshare. The company is based in Orlando, Florida and has been in business since 2015.

As we review the company website, we notice that there is no address in the footer or the About Us page. Eventually, we were able to find an address, but it seemed hidden. A Google search of the address, 5036 DR. PHILLIPS BLVD. # 221 ORLANDO, FL 32819 UN, does not bring up any buildings, so it might just be a PO box. Most legitimate companies have a physical office location, but that’s not always the case. Just something to think about.

Reviewing the website further and we are not able to find the names of anyone that works at this company. A search for the company on Sunbiz.org shows the company owner as “RM Murray.” Can’t say we’ve ever met anyone with a first name of “rm”, but that’s what Sunbiz.org says. A Google search for this name doesn’t bring up anything positive or negative about this person.

Looking at the company homepage and we see a mention of a “100% Money-Back Guarantee.” This generally means that you will need to pay Timeshare Cancel Center up front first before the company cancels your timeshare. This can be dangerous because the company could take your money up front and never cancel your timeshare. This is why we like to recommend timeshare exit companies that offer an escrow payment option so the exit company is not paid in full until AFTER your timeshare has been cancelled. Learn more about escrow and why it’s important.

When reviewing the FAQ page, we learn more about the company’s timeshare cancellation process. It appears that this company is not a law firm and is only able to help timeshare owners that qualify for its program. This is a good sign because timeshare exit companies that take all owners regardless of their situation tend to not stay in business very long. For example, many timeshare exit companies are not able to help owners who inherited the timeshare because these timeshare owners weren’t misled in a sales presentation (their parents were).

Timeshare Cancel Center Reviews

The company has several positive reviews on a website called Top Rated Local, but only 1 review on Google. The BBB profile for this company is currently being updated, so there are no reviews or complaints on the BBB. Timeshare Cancel Center reviews on Top Rated Local are positive, but the most recent review on this site is from 2016. Why the long gap in reviews? Seems odd.

Timeshare Cancel Center Costs

Like virtually all timeshare exit companies, the Timeshare Cancel Center cost can not be found online. You will need to contact them directly for a cost.

Summary

Overall, our recommendation does not change. Using an escrow service when hiring a timeshare exit company is one of the smartest things you can do. If you pay the company up-front, they could just take your money and run or go out of business. We’ve seen several examples of this recently with companies. Learn more about escrow and why it’s important here.

Resolution Timeshare Cancellation Review

Resolution Timeshare Cancellation is another timeshare exit company that may be able to help you cancel your timeshare. The company is based in Orlando, FL and has been in business since June 2019.

When reviewing the company’s homepage, the first thing that stands out to us is the recommendation to contact your resort first to see if a voluntary exit program is available. Some resort developers, such as Wyndham, have exit programs that you can use to exit your timeshare on your own without the help of a timeshare exit company. Many timeshare exit companies will not tell you that your resort has an exit program of its own because the timeshare exit company wants you to pay them thousands of dollars for a service you could easily do yourself with a simple phone call to your resort. Resolution Timeshare Cancellation has chosen to take the high road by only working with timeshare owners who were not able to cancel their timeshare directly with their resort. The company gets a major endorsement from us for its transparency.

Get your free consultation from Resolution Timeshare Cancellation

The next thing we notice on the homepage is the mention of a no up-front fee escrow payment option. We like to recommend timeshare exit companies that offer an escrow payment option because it allows owners to protect themselves from all possible scams. When you pay a timeshare exit company up-front, you lose all control. The timeshare exit company could take your money and never cancel your timeshare. When you pay with an escrow account, the timeshare exit company does not get paid until they’ve cancelled your timeshare. This gives the timeshare exit company incentive to complete the task it was hired to do. Resolution Timeshare Cancellation gets another endorsement from us for its escrow payment option.

Heading over to the Attorneys page and we see this company works with former New York attorney general, Myron G. Lasser. Experienced and ethical legal council is an important quality for a timeshare exit company to have because timeshare exit lawyers in the past have been disbarred for unethical activities.

Heading over to the About Us page and we see that Resolution Timeshare Cancellation is very different from other timeshare exit companies. This company does not employ sales people and offers a low, affordable flat fee for timeshare cancellation. Avoiding a commissioned salesperson is always a good idea because anyone who works on commission rarely has your best interests in mind.

Resolution Timeshare Cancellation Reviews

Resolution is a relatively new timeshare exit company, so reviews are hard to come by at the moment. We’ll update this section as reviews become available.

Resolution Timeshare Cancellation Costs

Like virtually all timeshare exit companies, Resolution Timeshare Cancellation does not display its costs on its website.  However, the company does not employ sales people and offers a low, flat fee pricing structure.

Summary

In summary, Resolution Timeshare Cancellation is a timeshare exit company we can recommend with confidence because it offers an escrow payment option. When you pay with escrow, you are protected from all possible scams.

How To

How To Get Rid of a Timeshare Inherited From Parents

Inheriting a timeshare from your parents may have initially seemed like a good idea, but when that first maintenance fee bill arrived you may have changed your opinion. It’s understandable. Even if the timeshare was paid off when you inherited it, the savings still don’t really exist. So, what can you do to get rid of a timeshare inherited from your parents?

To start, if you haven’t yet inherited the timeshare, all you need to do is refuse to take it. Some timeshare contracts are written in ways that will make you think you have to take it, but that’s a lie. Any experienced estate lawyer will advise you on ways to refuse the timeshare. If your estate lawyer says you must take it, your parents may have put your name on the deed when they originally purchased the timeshare. Or, your lawyer may simply be inexperienced with timeshare law.

One of the most common ways to refuse the timeshare is by issuing a “Disclaimer of Interest.” Your estate lawyer should be able to help you complete all the paperwork. If you refuse to take the timeshare, it will go to the next person in line so make sure to tell them to file their own Disclaimer of Interest if they also do not want to take the timeshare.

If you’ve already inherited the timeshare and now would like to get rid of it, you’ve got some work to do. You can attempt to sell the timeshare on ebay or craigslist, but most timeshares are never sold on the resale market because no one wants to buy them. Most charities won’t accept a timeshare donation because they don’t want to take on the timeshare’s yearly maintenance fees. You can attempt to give the timeshare back to the resort, but that rarely works as well, especially if there is a mortgage balance on the timeshare. The resorts want to keep collecting yearly maintenance fees from you so they usually don’t take timeshares back. So what are your options?

This is why timeshare exit companies exist. These companies work with lawyers to attempt to get your timeshare cancelled. Some timeshare exit companies are only able to help timeshare owners exit their timeshare if those owners feel they were deceived when purchasing the timeshare. If you inherited the timeshare, these companies won’t be able to help you because you didn’t buy the timeshare. You inherited it.

Fortunately, there are a few timeshare exit companies that will still be willing to work with you even if you inherited the timeshare. These exit companies will typically advise you to stop making payments on the timeshare and let it go in to foreclosure. They will use a credit blocking service to minimize any negative effects made to your credit. Sometimes these credit blocking services work. Sometimes they don’t.

When choosing a timeshare exit company to work with, our advice is to try and choose one that offers an escrow payment option. When you pay with escrow, the timeshare exit company is only paid in full after your timeshare has been cancelled. This is important because some timeshare exit companies in the past have taken money from owners promising to cancel their timeshare, and then either went out of business or never cancelled the timeshare. Learn more about escrow and why it’s important here.
