Get help if you feel victimized by scammer

Buying a timeshare can be a rip-off. But imagine getting ripped off twice or three times by crooks promising to help you resell your timeshare. The crooks typically ask for money upfront for advertising, title searches and other administrative fees. You may even be told you’ll get your money back if your timeshare isn’t sold in 90 days.
