EGG HARBOR TOWNSHIP, N.J., July 31, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Timeshare fraud is a serious threat to consumers. If anything, the ever-burgeoning influence of the Internet, and the anonymity it offers, makes different kinds of scam more prevalent, and timeshare fraud is no exception. This is particularly true in places like Florida, where timeshare properties are more common—but a new Florida bill is seeking to crack down on timeshare scammers, and ultimately to protect the consumer. The bill has won the praise of VO Financial, itself a company zealous for curbing the threat of timeshare fraud.
The bill in question is called the Timeshare Resale Accountability Act, and was signed into law by Florida Governor Rick Scott just last month. The bill is designed to tackle timeshare fraud, particularly as perpetrated by disreputable timeshare resale companies.
The Timeshare Resale Accountability Act was implemented with the intention of offering greater protection to Florida consumers, and to help bring about an end to the deceptive marketing practices that are often implemented by fraudulent timeshare resale companies. These companies target unsuspecting consumers, claiming to deliver services in selling timeshares more quickly or for better prices.
According to VO Financial, this kind of deception and timeshare fraud remains a big problem, not just in Florida but all over the country. VO Financial is a company passionate for assisting individuals who have been victimized by timeshare fraud. The company has issued a new statement to the press in which it offers its own assessment of—and praise for—the Timeshare Resale Accountability Act.
"Timeshares with an existing mortgage attached have a zero percent chance of being resold," says the VO Financial press statement. "Hopefully this bill will scare resellers from preying on timeshare consumers."
The bill in question requires the full and fair disclosure of all terms and conditions of services being offered, as well as a rescission period for consumers to cancel a contract with the timeshare resale company. The bill offers stiff penalties for individuals or companies that engage in fraudulent or deceptive practices with regard to the resale of timeshares.
