August 19, 2011 — When an infectious disease such as smallpox, tuberculosis, HIV or the H1N1 influenza virus spreads through human populations, indiscriminately crossing regions, continents or goes ‘viral’ worldwide, various government agencies unite and coordinate an effort to end the devastation caused by the killer disease.
In the timeshare industry we have our own special plague spreading worldwide that I will henceforth dub a ‘Sharedemic’. Across the USA and indeed around the world timeshare owners, in record numbers, are being infected by con artists, thieves and scammers who are stealing millions of their dollars through fraudulent resale/rental schemes, further damaging our already tarnished industry image.
But there seems to be help on the horizon. This publication has been contacted recently by a certain Government Agency seeking whatever information we may have collected over the years on these scammers, and that Agency is now in a full court press (with ‘others’) to shut down and incarcerate as many of these thieves as possible, putting their sorry asses behind bars (where they surely belong) for a very long time!
In that spirit we are more than willing to help and have agreed to do whatever we can to provide that Agency with any information we have. By doing so, in our own little way, we hope to help inoculate timeshare owners from being further bilked out of their hard earned money.
As such we urge every timeshare developer, sales or marketing rep, ARDA, consumers and every legitimate company involved in the secondary market to help in this effort and supply us any names (individuals and/or company) that you suspect are involved in these unlawful practices that affect timeshare owners and our industry so that we can ‘probe’ into their activities.
Naturally, all ‘tips’ and information, etc., submitted will be held in the strictest confidence. You can e-mail me directly or call our Toll free number (1-877-477-2900) and leave an anonymous tip. And united, for once, let’s all pull together and get rid of these low-rent bottom feeding scum sucking bums once and for all!
As for you crooks reading this (and I know you are), well, ‘What ya gonna do when they come for you…’
