Timeshare owners around the planet are approached each day by setups who make an effort to sell them their services through the phone. These firms will do whatever is required to convince timeshare owners to make an upfront payment for an empty promise. Telemarketers are highly talented in convincing these owners that there is a buyer waiting to buy their timeshare, but they have to make a small payment first for the data to be given. It isn't till later that the owners notice that they've been scammed and the company / organisation has totally disappeared.
From the other viewpoint, recently, timeshare owners have been informed about the various methods fraudsters use to make a few bucks and are not as easily fooled as they were before. Timeshare owners have learned how to research a company before stumping up for their services.
One big issue for fraudsters and shysters is that they have no credibility because they do not have an estate broker's license. They would also lack the capability to acquire one because of their inferior past. As a result of this, fraudsters have taken their efforts to fresh heights. They are now posing as imposters by utilizing the names of licensed, credible timeshare resale brokers. The imposter ( con-man ) will push the timeshare owner into checking for themselves the validity of the company while they're on the phone. By employing this strategy, they have convinced timeshare owners that making an upfront charge is obligatory in order to get their timeshare sold.
