Cancel Timeshare In South Carolina

Reducing timeshare fraud risk should be at the top of your to do list!

We’re talking about timeshare fraud risk to celebrate National Consumer Protection Week! Every year, the FTC dedicates this week to educating consumers on how to avoid scams and frauds. As consumer advocates, we see the negative effects of timeshare fraud every day. Here are some risks to watch out for.

Timeshare Fraud Risk #1: Attending a Sales Presentation

Some timeshare fraud happens in the initial sales presentation. Most people attend these presentations to get the free gift. Unfortunately, getting that freebie is easier said than done. Many salespeople fail to deliver on their promise of that free gift. And that’s not the only risk! Salespeople have been known to make misleading remarks or fail to disclose key aspects of the timeshare. So, reduce your risk by steering clear of sales presentations. If you do attend, make sure to get everything in writing and hold them to their word.

Timeshare Fraud Risk #2: Answering the Phone

It’s a sad world we live in when answering the phone makes you vulnerable to fraud. But even as we move everything in our lives online, phone scams are still alive and well. Although you can’t stop answering your phone, be very wary of anyone who contacts you directly. Reduce your risk by properly researching any business who calls you directly. Check their reviews with the Business Consumer Alliance, Google Reviews, or other reputable review sites. Request everything in writing. And definitely don’t send anyone money.

Timeshare Fraud Risk #3: Being a Senior Citizen

Unfortunately, senior citizens are at high risk for fraud. They may have deep pockets after a lifetime of saving for retirement, which makes them attractive targets. So, fraudsters seek to exploit trust, loneliness and more. Reduce your risk by being very skeptical of ANYONE who asks you for money or information. If you have any doubts, ask for help from a family member or community organization. If your or a senior you know has been the victim senior fraud, report it here or here.

Timeshare Fraud Risk #4: Selling Your Timeshare

Unhappy timeshare owners often try to sell their timeshare. And there are plenty of listing services to help them find buyers. Unfortunately, when you put yourself out there to find a buyer, you also put yourself out for fraud to find you. If you list your timeshare, beware of calls from firms claiming to have a buyer for you. Unfortunately, many of these resale companies are looking to take your money and leave you with your timeshare. Click here for more on resale scams.

Frequently Asked Questions ?

How does PMG get me out of my timeshare contract?

PMG is not a resale, transfer, or donation company. We are consumer advocates—we help to negotiate the release of your timeshare contract obligation. We do not buy, sell, or rent your timeshare. Simply put, we help you to get out of your timeshare contract forever.

How long does the process usually take?

Usually less than 12 months, but it all depends on your situation. If your timeshare is free and clear with no mortgage, then the process may only take 3-9 months.

Speak to your advisor about the time, and what delays the resorts have put into place to prevent timeshare owners from departing their ownership. If you have a mortgage or past due maintenance fee, the process takes more time.

How much is my timeshare worth?

This is probably going to hurt, but whether you paid $5,000 or $50,000 for your timeshare, the IRS values all timeshares as worthless investments. In addition, that timeshare would have negative value due to the annual maintenance fee bill which compounds year after year. That is until PMG helps you cancel your timeshare.

Can I use your service if I still have a balance owed on my mortgage?

Yes. Whether you bought your timeshare 20 days ago or 20 years ago, PMG has a solution for you and is here to help.

Will my name be off the timeshare?

Yes! Permanently! GUARANTEED!

In addition to getting me out of my timeshare, can you recover the money I’ve already spent on mortgage payments and maintenance fees?

While we are able to recover money in rare cases, beware of any timeshare cancellation company that entices you with the promise of fund recovery. The truth is, timeshares are loath to give back the money they’ve already taken.

Are your consumer advocates really “consumer advocates”, or is that just a fancy word for salesperson?

Because most of our clients have had their trust betrayed by timeshare salespeople, we understand how some consumers can become a bit jaded. When you call us for a consultation, that’s exactly what you get, a consultation. At PMG, our job is not to sell you; our job is to help you get out of your timeshare. Which is why we have numerous 5-star reviews and an “A” (excellent) rating from the BCA.

Why should I choose PMG to get me out of my timeshare?

We pride ourselves on providing our customers with the best customer service in the industry. When you contact our company, you speak to a live person, not an automated system or voicemail. We go above and beyond for our customers by helping you to protect your credit and even repair your credit if needed. We offer a 100% money back guarantee, and we can provide documented proof of our success in helping customers just like you.

What happens after I sign up with you? Will I be apprised of your progress?

At PMG, we pride ourselves on our hands-on, boutique-style customer service, so every new client is assigned a case manager whose job is to keep you in the loop throughout the entire cancellation process. Your case manager is always just a phone call away.

How much is your fee?

Not all timeshare experiences are created equal. Some are more complicated than others, and every situation is different. That’s why our trained timeshare elimination consultants will ask you a series of questions designed to determine exactly what needs to be done to terminate your timeshare, how long it will take, and how they can best advocate for you. We will always seek the most cost-effective route for you.

What if I still have more questions?

Canceling a timeshare contract is not a cookie cutter process. With each situation being unique, once you complete the form below an experienced consumer advocate will call you today to discuss your options.
