Timeshare Consumer Protection Campaign
Identifying and Avoiding Timeshare Exit Scams
The ARELLO Timeshare Committee, with sponsorship from the ARELLO Foundation and the American Resort Development Association (ARDA), has developed this Timeshare Consumer Protection Campaign for the general public. The goal was to develop consumer protection videos aimed at raising consumer awareness of timeshare exit scams, where fraudulent companies collect large, up-front fees promising to help timeshare owners sell their property or get out of their timeshare obligations and do not deliver any of the promised services.
The outcomes of this project are long videos, shorter sound bites, as well as a press kit which can be personalized with your agency contact information. Below are links to the materials developed.
