Avoiding Timeshare Resale Scams
WE ARE PREMIER TIMESHARE RESALE, LLC. WE NEVER CHARGE ANY FEE IN ADVANCE OF A SALE AND WE DO NOT TELEMARKET OR MAKE COLD CALLS TO TIMESHARE OWNERS. IF SOMEONE CONTACTS YOU AND YOU WOULD LIKE TO CONFIRM THEIR ASSOCIATION WITH PTR, CALL OUR MAIN OFFICE AT 866-827-3900 OR EMAIL KELLY@PREMIERTIMESHARERESALE.COM.
If you have received a call from someone asking you to pay anything with a credit card or bank account over the phone and stating they are us or affiliated with us, they are not. Do not pay them! If you have already paid them do whatever you can to get the money back fast. Call your bank or credit card company to cancel or dispute the charge. It is a scam! You will not get any contracts in the mail and your property is not sold by us. Unfortunately, you have been scammed. To file complaints and fight for recourse see “How you can help put the scammers behind bars” section below.
Scammers are tricky in their schemes from having a fake Buyer call you to giving the real name, company and website of a real legitimate company. You must be smart too. Do your research! Educate yourself by reading our tips to avoid scams, our red flags you are speaking to a scam artist, and our list of common timeshare scams.
