Grand Solmar Warns Timeshare Owners about Common Resale Scheme

The Grand Solmar resale watch team wants to make sure that no one ever gets ripped off by scammers, but knows that unfortunately many people do when they try to sell their timeshare weeks. There are many scammers waiting to take advantage of timeshare owners, but the Grand Solmar resale watch team knows that if you know how to spot a scam you can avoid falling for it. Here is a common resale scam that you should watch out for.

In this scam, the company that is buying your timeshare, or has “sold” it for you, talks about the price with you and agrees to send you a check for the money. When you receive the check, however, it is too much money, and you quickly contact the seller and let them know there was an error, they ask you to send them the difference, sneakily pocking a method that cannot be traced. Most people at this point feel like they should send the money back, and do, only to realize a few days later when the bank processes the check that the timeshare owner realizes that the check was bad and they sent money that they did not have.

You should never accept a check for more money than you agreed upon. If you think someone if trying to pull this scam on you, the ball is fortunately in your court, you can refuse to accept the check or do further business with the person if they do not send you the correct amount.

Grand Solmar Advises on How to Avoid an Unwanted Resale Scam

Grand Solmar is one of the leading providers of luxury vacations in gorgeous Cabo San Lucas, Mexico. For all those who are planning their summer vacation, it’s important to find a place to spend time that the whole family will enjoy. Often, resorts offer many exciting benefits, amenities and beautiful accommodations that make for a great vacation destination. But some consider these facilities a little more pricy and try to find deals to justify the expense.

Research the Source: It’s important to question where the offer is coming from. These individuals often have a sob story about why they may not be able to use their week, often because of a family problem or unexpected expense. If something seems off, trust your instinct.  Grand Solmar Resale Awareness Team advises travelers to remember there is no way to guarantee this stranger is being honest.

Remember Key Things: The first important thing to keep in mind is that the price includes a lot of amenities that are often changed, and probably won’t be included in any online deal. The second is that there are certain fees that have to be paid upon the purchase of these weeks, and often are not included in the original price. The last thing is that unfortunately, sometimes these deals are for outdated properties that look nothing like the photos they send and sometimes may not exist at all.

Buy Direct: The only surefire way to guarantee that your vacation purchase isn’t a scam is to buy direct from the resort. Grand Solmar Resale Awareness Team knows this will help any traveler have peace of mind and avoid any issues on their next vacation.
