In response to Villa del Palmar resale scams that have been becoming an ever more frequent issue, Villagroup and UVC (Universal Vacation Club) are now working with various local and federal authorities to ensure that Villa del Palmar resale scams are less and less frequent. If you think that you have been the target of a Villa del Palmar resale scam then you can help by following some simple steps.
Firstly, it is important that you keep all physical and electronic correspondences sent to you by the fraudsters. These should be passed on to the authorities and to Villagroup or UVC as an when appropriate. If you are contacted again, after previous correspondences have been forwarded, you should record and forward these too.
You should then make a complaint to the Federal Trade Commissions Business Fraud Division, your state Attorney Generals Office and report the incident directly to ARDA. You can do so by calling 1-877-382-4357 for the Business Fraud Division, visting http://www.arda.org/advisories and consulting your local yellow pages or the internet for the contact details of your Attorney Generals Office.
ARDA also provides a library of useful articles that will provide you with invaluable information. These can also be found at: http://www.arda.org/advisories.
It has recently come to light that Villagroup or UVC cannot make a claim on behalf of a scam victim as a first hand, official statements must be given to the authorities directly regarding a Villa del Palmar resale scam. However all of the aforementioned organisations are available to help so you should feel free to contact them. In fact, you should most definitely contact them with any questions you may have. Knowledge is power, after all, and with the right knowledge we can ensure that Villa del Palmar resale scams are a thing of the past.
