Prior to seeking cancellation of my Villa Group timeshare I tried to sell it, rent it, and even give it away for free. I fell victim to a resale scam ($1500) for a guarantee to sell the share at a profit within 6 months. The offer was fake but I did get a full refund with the help of my credit card company. Offering the share for free provided no takers either.
Looking to rid myself of it I found Mexican Timeshare Solution to be the only company that didn't charge an upfront fee. There may be others now. I was unable to find any conclusive info about them online. But there were no negative reports so I decided to give them a try.
I signed the contract in sept of 2013. They attempted to recover part of my purchase cost for a 15% fee of the recovered amount. This was not successful. I was a bit disappointed but not surprised as my main expectation had been to cancel the timeshare and avoid paying in excess of $17,000 to $21,000 or more in maintenance fees over the next 26 years. The process took about 5 months but my timeshare contract is cancelled. I did verify the cancellation directly with the resort before submitting payment to Mexican Timeshare Solutions. They didn't pressure me to pay them until I was fully satisfied.
Therefore I recommend Mexican Ttimeshare Solutions to others facing the same predicament.
