To protect you from the increasing incidents of attempted Villa del Palmar resale scams, various steps have been taken by the Villa Group and other timeshare companies to make timeshare scams a thing of the past.
While still relatively uncommon, Villa del Palmar resale scams are sadly becoming a real danger to happy members who are targeted by fraudsters. In steady response to this potential danger and threat to the enjoy of its members, the Villagroup, Universal Vacation Club and ARDA (the American Resort Development Association) have been working with local and federal law institutions to try and put an end to resale scams once and for all (or at least make members aware of the dangers).
You may have noticed the selection of companies on the internet and in local free papers selling Villa del Palmar timeshare resales as well as other timeshare products. The difficulty arises trying to tell if these are genuine timeshare resale agents or scams tempting you to part with your money in joining fees and surveys. Most of the companies you will find re-selling and buying Villa del Palmar timeshares on the Internet require an upfront joining fee, so you should be very wary, as that is a sure sign that you could be in for a scam.
