When faced with a Villa del Palmar resale scam there are a few things you should do, the first of these is to report the incident directly to either Villagroup or the Universal Vacation Club International (UVCI) directly. Villagroup and UVCI are working with various local and federal law enforcements, along with ARDA, in order to wipe out Villa del Palmar resale scams entirely! You can help to achieve this by following these simple steps:
Keep All Correspondence

If you receive further correspondence after you report the initial incident, then you should also keep and forward these documents.

Report Villa del Palmar Resale Scam to Villagroup and/or UVCI
Report the incident to Villagroup or UVCI so that they can start a file on the individual(s) and the scam.
Unfortunately it is becoming more necessary for Villa del Palmar members to be aware of what to do when faced with such scams as they are increasingly the chosen targets due to the popularity of the world class timeshare membership. However it’s important to keep in mind that there are resources and organisations available which can help in the event of a Villa del Palmar resale scam. ARDA has a number of articles in their online library which can provide information and advice. This list of resources can be found at: www.arda.org/advisories.
While neither Villagroup or UVCI can file a claim on your behalf, claims must be made by the victim, they can help you along the way and offer advice when you require it.
