BBB: Watch out for fake Time Share offer

Couple in Shell Knob taken for thousands . . . .

The Better Business Bureau is warning Joplin area residents about a fake Time Share company.

A couple in Shell Knob lost nearly 16-thousand dollars after a telephone salesman told them they qualified for over 30 vacation packages, although they had never purchased even one.

“This is something to watch out for” says Stephanie Garland of the BBB. “If  you know you don’t have a time share and someone calls out of the blue with a ridiculous number – in this case, 35 vacation packages – please realize you do not own a time share.”

“You have to sign paperwork in person in order to purchase one,” she adds.

Garland says most Time Share operations are legitimate companies that operate within the law.

Unfortunately, this one was not.
