Through my work with the National Timeshare Owners Association, I've been made aware of a resale scam using the name of TATOC. TATOC is recognized as the authoritative voice of timeshare owners in the United Kingdom and partners with the TATOC Consumer Helpline and is not involved in the sale, rental or transfer of any timeshare and does not ever ask for money from timeshare owners.
Additionally, the resale scam in question used the name of Resort Equity Marketing in Altamonte Springs, Florida and involved the wiring of several thousand dollars to a third party under the promise that those funds would be recouped by the “sale” of the timeshare.
The entire process looked to be legitimate, including the use of a Report of International Transportation of Currency or Monetary Instruments form from the US Government and a Cross Boarder Currency or Monetary Instruments Report from the Canadian Government.
For the seemingly millionth time...DO NOT ENGAGE WITH ANY ENTITY THAT INITIATES CONTACT WHEN IT COMES TO YOUR TIMESHARE
Would you pay someone up front to sell your car?
