Timeshare scammers call an individual and offer to sell the individual’s timeshare (if they have one). Timeshare fraudsters often promise that sale of the timeshare will be quick and profits from the sale will be high. If the individual agrees to sell their timeshare with the fraudster, the fraudster often requests the individual to pay numerous up-front fees (e.g. maintenance, escrow, taxes, etc.). When the sale agreement is written up, the documentation often appears to be legitimate.
