The Villa Group are very particular about their customer rapport and make a point to train their employees to remain friendly and amiable under all circumstances. Villa del Palmar Cabo’s presentations do not offer outrageous incentives to attend their talks and tours of the resort, most people will receive discounts on activities and excursions or restaurant vouchers as a means of encouraging them to attend.

Generally speaking, timeshare companies in Cabo who offer unrealistic gifts as an incentive to go to their resort are very likely to be a scam. If the prize is way too expensive to give away, then there will be some catch. Most of the time the catch doesn’t cost you money, but sometimes you might be charged a hefty delivery fee for something that is really not worth the box it was sent in. Other timeshare presentation scams include charging you the “taxes” to receive you gift.

  1. If you are not interested in purchasing a timeshare, do not attend a timeshare presentation! The free gifts are not worth wasting a day of your vacation, and putting your hard earned money at risk of being scammed by the timeshare salespeople.

  2. You are a victim of timeshare scam in Mexico if you were told these statements at a sales presentation:

    “…our timeshare is a good financial investment.”
    “…you can rent your timeshare weeks and make a profit.”
    “…you can sell your timeshare anytime and make a profit.”
    “…XYC company will buy your old timeshare for a considerable amount of money.”
    “…our timeshare offers you exceptional benefits and discounts for airfare, car rental, cruises, hotels or tours.”
    “…our timeshare offers tax advantages.”
    “…our timeshare is a deeded or like a deeded property (perpetuity).”
    “…please, sign this waiver rescinding your right to cancel your timeshare within the 5 day recsission period as we are activating your timeshare today.”

  3. The truth is that Timeshare scams are increasing, and every day more victims fell for them. Fortunately, there are many solutions to get rid of an unwanted timeshare; however, the best way to dump a timeshare is by cancelling the contract. Timeshare cancellation has many advantages, but the most important is that once the contract is properly cancelled, there are no further responsibilities attached to the resort.
