Hello,
I have a Thread going on the Mexico Timeshare Forum, but this is about something else, it in regards to credible information, see below just wondering if he is legit in his advice, pls and thanks:)
I found this guy giving advice and offering seminars on how to get out of timeshares, and he says for Mexican timeshares all it is is Vacation Club Memberships, as has been said here too, he also says that because the Jurisdiction is in Mexico, they cannot do anything to You if You live in USA or Canada, and they cannot do anything with your Credit Rating, here is the video, he does say that they can do some illegal things if they have your SSN or for us in Canada our SIN # which in my case they have, they can use it for identity theft which of course is illegal but you have to go thru a process if this happens.. I have two credit checks applications at the moment Credit Karma, and I have one thru my bank that keeps track of Credit Scores and suspicious activity. His name is Wayne C. Robinson, have any of You here heard of him, is he credible?

Thanks..

Mr Robinson repeatedly attempts to shill for his "products" on TUG... his advice on exiting your timeshare is likely the same advice you can get anywhere else for free and that is to just stop paying for it.

I've heard of him. Is he credible? I don't know him well enough to answer that. I believe he has said that he used to sell timeshares in Mexico. Many people involved with timeshare cancellation were at one time timeshare sales people or executives. I've also watched many of his videos on YouTube and even signed up for his course to exit a Mexican timeshare (when it was a free course). It now costs $1,200! I remember looking the other day and it was something like $895 and in his third most recent video from December he touts them as costing less than $200. That sure is some inflation!

The chance of a credit hit is miniscule, but always there. It may depend on how you financed the timeshare and if the financing was with a US or Canadian entity. Unlikely, but possible. If you can't afford the timeshare then you can't afford it. No need to keep dumping money into it. I wouldn't be concerned with the identity theft issue. That is a risk that impacts everyone just about every day.

Looking at your profile of what you own, it looks like you just signed up for a membership in a Mexican all-inclusive resort. Even though it has the Wyndham name on it, you didn't buy from the US Club Wyndham company. You don't really own anything, just a right to use contract. If you stop paying, they will just cancel your membership.

The advice offered is no different than what is offered here and on other YouTube channels about how to get out of a timeshare.
