Villa Group Timeshare Rental Scams
Unfortunate situations have come up in the past where a scammer will claim to be a legitimate owner with the Villa Group. However, they are scamming innocent victims by collecting an upfront rental fee and then not being able to legitimately rent out the unit.
The unsuspecting victim pays the booking fee, only to arrive at the Villa Group resorts to be shocked to learn the booking was not legit.
Read this post to avoid pishing and fraud calls.
Prior to paying a booking fee, make sure you verify the Villa Group timeshare member is valid and ask for their membership number. Then, you can call the Villa Group to confirm the information is accurate.
Likewise, Villa Group can confirm if there is a pending reservation in your name and make sure you are listed as an authorized guest at the timeshare.
Timeshare Owner Tips
In addition, Villa Group timeshare rental scams can occur when a genuine owner tries to rent out their timeshare to vacationers. To make sure you don’t work with fraudsters, only deal directly with the Villa Group – We are happy to help our owners find valid renters to rent your timeshare.
In the past, fraudulent timeshare rental agencies have scammed unsuspecting Villa Group timeshare owners by telling them that they have a renter for their timeshare when they did not. Instead, the fraudulent timeshare rental agency collects an upfront fee for their rental services, and then quickly disappears after receiving the payment.
Note that if you choose to work with a timeshare rental agency, you should not have to pay any upfront fees. Instead, reputable vacation rental agencies only charge a commission for successful rentals – Be wary of agencies that charge an upfront fee because they are probably a timeshare scammer.
