Resort Equilty Marketing REM Complaint - Time Share Selling/Rental Rip Off

Review by R. on 2009-03-27
ALTAMONTE SPRINGS, FLORIDA -- REM is still at it!!! My father got a call to sell or rent his timeshare. How do they get your information??? My father talked to REM three days ago. He did give his credit card number to them and just got the paper work to sign in the mail today. Thank god he called me and I found this website before he signed the contract. We are not sure yet if he’ll get his money (1400) back off his credit card. Reading the above information is not making it seem to promising. He will be contacting the Florida Attorney general and the BBB in Florida for the area of REM on Monday. This is not the first company he lost money to trying to rent/sell his timeshare. Beware!!! According to Wyndam Resorts, if you have to pay someone money up front than chances are it’s a scam.

Just like the comments Don’t agree to anything without checking the company out on line and if they want money up front forget it!!! Only pay them at the time of sale!!!!

Clark Howard gets a lot of calls on timeshares. He states that ALL of these resale companies are a rip-off. The best way to get rid of one is either donate it to a charity (if your contract allows it) or go use the time share and while you are there, try to find someone that is there on a pre-sales visit and get them to buy yours at a discount.

For what it's worth, if this resale company is Florida based, the state has a Bureau of Timeshares - they might be able to help - their number is 850-487-1395.

Good luck.
