Villa Group Elite membership is one of the best timeshare options available on the market in Mexico so you can rest easy knowing that you have avoided becoming victim to a timeshare scam. Villa Group resorts are a proud member of the American Resort Development Association (ARDA) and its sales practices fall in line with local and federal Mexican government standards and regulations.
Villa Group Elite Membership and Timeshare Scams
Many people assume that timeshare ownership and timeshare scams are restricted to fraudulent timeshare sellers or illegal timeshare resellers that could target you after you purchase a genuine timeshare membership. In the recent past, some unfortunate Villa Group Elite members have been targeted by “timeshare advocates” who claimed to offer legitimate services that included resale scams, cancellation scams and other timeshare rental scams. Make sure you are aware of these type of activity so you can protect yourself and your investment!
Fraudulent Timeshare Consultants
Recently, the ARDA released a scam alert that warned timeshare members to be aware of fraudulent companies claiming to work in conjunction with its association. The American Resort Development Association issued a warning to advise timeshare owners to avoid a fraudulent company working under the name of “Resort Consulting Advocates”. The advisory stated that several timeshare owners have been contacted by individuals working as “Resort Consulting Advocates” that claimed to have interested buyers for the victim’s timeshare property. The scam took place when they concocted false sale contracts which included a “100% guarantee” on the sale, and they also claimed to be affiliated with ARDA in an attempt to convince the victims to pay an upfront fee.
Avoid Fake Companies!
The fraudulent and fake company called Resort Consulting Advocates is only one of several scammers trying to take advantage of innocent timeshare owners, including Villa Group Elite membership owners. One way these companies avoid justice is that they frequently change their company name to keep authorities and clients in the dark about who they are truly working with. Be advised to be very cautious when dealing with any company that contacts you to offer help with the resale, rental or cancellation services related to your Villa Group Elite membership. It is extremely likely that these companies are scams and you should avoid them at all costs. It is always recommended to only deal directly with Villa Group and address any concerns or questions regarding your Villa Group Elite membership to a trained staff member who is more than willing to assist you.
