How Do Typical Timeshare Scams Work?

Timeshare scams are very common in the travel industry, fooling many people every year. If you want to avoid the scams, here are some things to keep in mind.

Unrealistic Prizes

Some of the scam timeshare companies offer very unrealistic prizes or incentives just to get you in the door. For example, if they offer to give you a free boat or car just for attending, there is a chance that it is a scam. The odds that you actually taking something like that home are slim. If the prize seems too good to be true, it probably is. 

Pushy Sales People

When you are at a timeshare sale presentation, there is a good chance that you will encounter a pushy sales person. When this happens, let them know that you do not appreciate how you are being treated. If they keep trying to push you into buying something, do not hesitate to walk away. When you are potentially spending thousands of dollars, you need to make sure you feel good about the purchase without being coaxed into it.
