    Stay Away Timeshare Liquidators, LLC located 1050 E. Flamingo Rd, Suite N337, Las Vegas. This company takes advantage of buyers and tells lies and half truths and then has the buyers sign that the sale is final and that only what is written in the contract and not any verbal promises are the full extent of what you are agreeing to. Any victim of this timeshare resale company can join with us, we want to take a legal action against Timeshare Liquidators, LLC.

    Thanks!

    TLC Victim

    My husband and I have also been a victim of Timeshare Liquidators, LLC, purchasing in January 2013. We've filed complaints with the BBB of Las Vegas and the State of Nevada Real Estate Division, and would be interested in being involved with a class action lawsuit.

    Keep in mind these resale scammers are here today and gone to tomorrow.

    Since class action attorneys typically get paid a percentage out of proceeds, they only take on cases where there are deep pockets.

    I would doubt they have any insurance and the loot for the day gets moved out of LLC muy pronto.

    Not only "not much", but actually "nothing at all"...

    Certainly true. For whatever reasons, some people apparently believe that the Better Business Bureau is a quasi-governmental entity and / or actually has some sort of authority or power. That is simply not the case. The BBB has absolutely no power or legal authority of any kind; BBB is just an organization / club for any and all commercial entities willing to pay a membership fee...

    Exactly. Beyond there being criminal charges it is a complete waste of time. If you file a suit they can just start up another company.

    This is more of a lesson of reading your agreement and understanding what you are signing. NV has tough rules for timeshare resale buyers and it is unfortunate but this lesson goes far beyond timeshares.

    Timeshare Liquidators used to be a PCC right? I wasn't aware they were getting into the listing biz.

    One should surely be aware of such companies who try to lure you with false promises and should file a legal action against it with an experienced attorney.

    This is bad advice that will only multiply the losses. File complaints with the attorney general and learn to read every word you sign and ignore verbal promises.

    An observation...

    I agree wholeheartedly, but am not sure the "advice" post cited ("first post" on "first day" of TUG registration) was actually serious in the first place. If intended to be legitimate and / or substantive input, why include the odd accompanying "catalog returns" link in a very first post? Maybe a spammer "test run"? :shrug::confused::shrug:

    web address to NV senators and 800-992-0900 for help.

    Here are some contact information that might be helpful:

    Elected representatives do not like the public be taken advantage of.
    They will not know unless people tell them what happened to them.
    It may not change your outcome, but will help in preventing others from falling victim.

    Bad press and exposure from elected representative will have far greater and lasting effects than a bbs post. The bbs posts can be a call to action.

    We have also been taken by this company!. The sales pitch was that they were to release us of the ownership of our current timeshare, IF we purchased, a new timeshare through Timeshare liquidator. this commitment was in April 2012, as as of today we still own TWO timeshares, as they never did release us from the ownership of the current timeshare we have in Ontario. I want to participate in a class action suit against Timeshare liquidator, just not sure how to get this started.
    Feel free to contact me, and I would be happy to work together to help the many victims of this croocked company.

    Sorry you were taken advantage of. The truth is that there will be no 'class action'. No law firm will undertake a lawsuit if there is no money to retreive either for the losers or themselves.

    Furthermore, Nevada law protects timeshare resellers by disallowing rescission, or a cooling off period before the sale is final.

    At this stage, to avoid spending even more money uselessly, consider listing you unwanted TSs on TUG or Redweek, and getting shed of the obligation yourself. DO NOT spend more money upfront to any reseller. They are all a scam. Legit brokers take their commission at closing.

    Best wishes.

    this +1 ... I look at BBB.org as being a gimped Angie's list where you only get to see negative information IF someone has actually taken the time to file a complaint. Otherwise, any company listing on BBB.org is a crap-shoot like the yellow pages

    I just got taken by them. Not too bad (everything being relative) - just did the $895 "special" to try it out and get locked in. Well, as predicted you can't book anything. Would like to get my money back. They are crooks.

    Ripped off by Timeshare liquidators, 1050 Flamingo rd, suite N337, las Vegas

    I would love to be part of a class action lawsuit with this company. They conned us into purchasing a new property, and would take our old timeshare as trade in. they never did release us of the current timeshare and we now own 2 timeshares. this is breach of contract and misrepresentation by them. I have contact the BBB and they were not able to help us.
    I would be happy to give my email address, out side of this forum, just not sure how to do this.

    Well, if they put that in writing then that would be considered a breach of contract. If it's not in writing then you're plum out of luck.

    Timeshare liquidators

    Just a head's up -- there is another business under the name of Timeshare Liquidators, with Caron Cook and is based out of California. It is not the same business as the one with that name in Las Vegas.

    Caron has a different business model and has been in business 17 years, reselling timeshares. She does not charge an upfront fee and I just had a good conversation with her about selling a timeshare. She has had a AAA rating with the Southern CA BBB in the past, but they no longer operate out of So.CA. She really seems on the up and up and is distressed about the bad press she gets from all the complaints regarding the Nevada business.

    How to cancel

    If you bought from them, then went home and researched them and saw this thread, and want to cancel, they will lie to you and tell you that you didn't buy a timeshare, but a vacation club membership, so the rescission period doesn't apply to you, and that you've signed a no refund/cancellation contract. Well, if you did buy a timeshare, by Nevada laws, you have 5 business days to cancel. If you join a vacation club, you have 3. Either way, you can cancel, just do so quickly. Hope it helped someone. My husband found this, which I'm sharing to help others: http://www.justanswer.com/real-esta...ased-timeshare-saturday-2-1-14-yesterday.html. I also sent emails to CA, NV attorney generals and NV legislatures, so that these liars can be shut down.
