There has been a spate of Villa del Palmar class action suit scams reported in the last year or so and owners have been warned to take care when approached by what appear to be timeshare lawyers.
This class action suits for Villa del Palmar timeshare owners and other renowned timeshare companies whereby firms claiming to be timeshare attorneys and lawyers contact timeshare owners offering to assist them in gaining full refunds on their Villa del Palmar timeshares. These fraudulent timeshare lawyers tend to target Villa del Palmar owners who have had their timeshare for a few years and who may well see the benefit of getting their money back in order to purchase another timeshare.
In order to become part of the Villa del Palmar class action suit, you will have to pay a fee, which is marginal in comparison to taking a timeshare company to court by yourself. The relatively low cost makes it more attractive and therefore Villa del Palmar timeshare owners become less likely to question the validity of the timeshare lawyers’ case. What happens is that large number of owners are scammed into joining a class action case they never win.
It is important to note that unless you have a genuine case against a timeshare company, such as you have proof that the Villa del Palmar unit you have bought was misrepresented or that the resort was never built, you are unlikely to get your money back. The only valid way to cancel a Villa del Palmar timeshare is during the cooling off period. Any lawyers or timeshare attorneys telling you otherwise, is likely to be a scam. Take care and read your contract before paying lawyers any money.
