Be alert for timeshare scams
The committee wishes to alert members that timeshare scams are on the rise during this period of uncertainty due to coronavirus.
We are advised through industry contacts that scams are up by some 25 per cent plus.
Please remember that if you receive a phone call or email from an unexpected source, it could be a timeshare scam.
Typically, they will tell you they can release you from your timeshare, that they represent your club which ‘they will claim’ is going into liquidation, ask if you have received compensation they claim is due to you and will suggest that they can help you get money back.
These companies are not representative of your club and are making false promises.
If you are asked for money, credit card or bank details, do not give them out unless you are sure of the genuine nature of the approach. Never sign anything without taking advice first.
Please be careful and act with caution. Be mindful that, if something sounds too good to be true, it usually is.
