Recently, the Oregon Real Estate Agency has brought yet another timeshare resale scam to light.
Similar to other timeshare resale scam tactics, these timeshare scammers have been using the names of legitimate Oregon real estate licensees and companies to steal from innocent timeshare owners. These company and licensee names are being used by these "timeshare resellers" without the actual consent of the legitimate licensees or companies.
One of the major warning signs accompanied with a timeshare exit scam is receiving an unsolicited call from a person who claims they may have a "buyer," or is interested in "buying" your timeshare. Another huge red flag is when you are asked to wire money to pay a "transfer fee," or if they claim it is required to sign the timeshare deed over without going through a licensed escrow company. This particular timeshare resale scam out of Oregon follows many of the same characteristics, showing the need for timeshare owners to be vigilant and recognize the signs of a timeshare scam.
