Run, run away...
My parents were contacted by Advocate Financial Services. They also go by ImmediateTimeshareRelief.com. For several thousand dollars they will get rid of their timeshare. They say they sell them to a 3rd party corporation and the owner is relieved of all liability. I assume this is another scam. Does anybody have any experience with them.
There are several
distinct red flags here:
1. "For several thousand dollars"....
If the timeshare at issue can, at worst, just likely be given away for free, why would your parents (...or anyone else on Planet Earth) consider paying
anyone several thousand dollars just to part with the ownership in the first place?
2. I've never once before heard of these particular parasites and would be very surprised if anyone else here has either. Likely just another group of worms who went underground with one name and have now re-emerged from their hole in the ground with a new name.
3. Corporations don't buy timeshares
--- not your parents', not anyone elses'. Not in the best of times and not now (which, for the timeshare resale market, is close to the worst
of times). It seems to me quite likely that this is just a so-called "Viking Ship" LLC situation, in which the nameless parasites pocket the several thousand dollars cash given to them, transfer the ownership into a bogus, shell LLC, then disappear back underground and call it a day.
This "offer" doesn't warrant even the courtesy of your reply, except perhaps to say "goodbye".
