ARDA (American Resort Developers Association), of which Cypress Pointe Resort is an active member, has posted a new consumer warning about a potential scam. The operation may be using the ARDA name to gain credibility. See the full press release here. 

Always remember that there are far too many scam operations out there that target timeshare owners. These may be offers to “guarantee” the sale of your ownership for what you paid or more, tales of “corporate use” of timeshares for conventions, etc (NEVER used by any Corporation we are aware of), offers to list your timeshare for sale or rent for a hefty “one time” fee of hundreds or more but then taking the money with no results, the “timeshare relief” operations that expect YOU to pay them for “taking your timeshare “off your hands” (which, even after they are paid thousands of dollars they may never legally do) – the list goes on.

IF you receive a letter or especially a call regarding selling or renting your timeshare ownership do not agree to give any money up front or you’ll likely lose it forever. If you have a question about any contacts you can always contact the resort at our contact page by email or phone.  Repeat:

NEVER PAY MONEY UPFRONT TO LIST, RENT, or SELL YOUR TIMESHARE!
