Based on the table below, it appears that allot of us are not complaining.

The information in the table below represents an industry comparison of businesses which are of the same relative size. This is based on BBB's database of businesses. Businesses may engage in more than one type of business. The percent of time the business engages in a type of business is not accounted for. There is no known industry standard for the number of complaints a business can expect. The volume of business and number of transactions may have a bearing on the number of complaints received by BBB.

Complaints in the past 36 months Size of Business 0 1-4 5-25 26-99 100+ Smallest 29 15 3 1 - | 5 - 8 *2 - | 1 2 - - - | - - - - - | - - - - - V - - - - - Biggest - - - - - SellMyTimeshareNow, LLC is in this range.

actually i believe SellMyTimeshareNow, LLC rates a "D" on the scale from A+ - F based on 80 complaints and 1 unresolved complaint, although SellMyTimeshareNow, LLC has settled about 20 of the 80 cases and in about another 10 cases the BBB cloased the case administratively since it determined that SellMyTimeshareNow, LLC made a reasonable offer that was not accepted by the other disputant and in about 10 cases the claims were not substantiated by the other disputant.

I think we can all agree we got taken. The best thing to do is publicly make this matter known. I too paid the amount of almost $800.00 and was told to go to Google and type in their info and then hit I feel lucky instead of search. I have never gotten any responses from them, and I have since stayed at the condo where our timeshare is. It was great until thr rooms next to us became occupied. Then it was very noisy, All I can say is suck it up that you did something like this and got screwed. Consider this a lesson learned.

I would disregard the comments from any of the principals of SellMyTimeshareNow, LLC. What do you think they are going to say.?

They have D rating from the Better Business Bureau on a scale of A-F. Enter their zip code of 03820 along with their name and see for yourself

I agree with others that they will advise you on a price then you find out that the SAME timeshare you own is advertised for 50% less than what they advised you of. They want their upfront fee period and obviously do not care about their reputation

You are indeed correct .... all they want is your upfront fee ... as far as their reputation, the only thing they care about is if their scam is publicized which hurts their bottom line .... and that's what us regulars are here to do .... publicize/out the scammers.

I cannot speak to the firm's good faith when it comes to sales, but for whatever its worth, I paid Sellmytimesharenow the $500 fee to rent each of two timeshares I own in the Carribbean, and have actually had great success with them. I received about 15 direct responses from individuals last year on one ad (I rented it to the 2nd one, 10 months in advance). The other had only two responses, but one was through the firm's sales office and that resulted in a rental

The problem is you could have saved yourself a lot of money had you listed your week yourself on timeshare ad sites such as Redweek and other popular sites on the internet.

It has been noted that the BBB’s new rating system rates all timeshare resale companies very low. This is due to the overall reputation of the timeshare industry.

Until then, we will continue to provide excellent service.

What you say your company provides is the exact same thing all other upfront fee scam companies say they provide .... you are NO different IF you require an upfront fee, period.

After re-reading this entire thread I see that the owner of Sell My Timeshare Now, Jason Trembely, has also tried to justify his company in a previous post on this thread .... have you and your employee not read all the negative testimonials on the internet concerning your company and then you get one of you socalled employees to come back and try to post that your company is legit.

Everyone that's been taken by your company needs to file a complaint with the Florida attorney general (research contact info) and hopefully you and all upfront fee scam companies will be put out of business one day .... this is my goal. It might be time for you to look for another line of work, Mr. Trembley. The attorney general has already shut down some upfront fee scam companies like yours in Florida.

I'm so glad I found this website. I'm am definitely interested in getting a refund because I feel the same way you do. They do misrepresent themselves. I paid for a service I am not getting. Let me know what you've learned and what I should do as well.

What you need to do, besides contacting the attorney general, is to file a class action lawsuit (you'll need to get others that's been ripped off by the company to join the lawsuit) .... you can find class action attorneys (that charge nothing unless they win) by googling 'class action attorneys/firms'.

Friends,

I own a timeshare and am seriously considering how best to sell it. In reading this thread I am struck by some thoughts. 1) Sellmytimesharenow is really just advertising sites that agrees to post your ad, try to get people to look at it, then route any questions or offers to you that may come in. 2) You can't hire a real estate agent to sell your time share for $500, but you can advertise it for that. 3) These Sellmytimeshare people will act as your real estate agent and take payment AFTER the sale if you want them to. They take a commision just like any other real estate broker would and its more like $1,500.

So here is what I don't get. All the people complaining on this site do not seem to understand the difference in what they asked this company to do. If you ask them to advertise your timeshare as a FSBO for $500, why do you fel they are obligated to act like a real estate agent that should be paid a significant commission? Is this just a group of cheap people looking to hire an agent but not pay for agent services? They offer a traditional deal to be paid a commission after the sale, but you chose not to sign up for that, because you are trying to pay the price for one thing, then complain that you did not get something else entirely.

To put $500 in perspective, I just sold the family house in Florida. As the house was going up for sale, one of the neighbors was interested in the house and made an offer before we signed up the real estate agent. Since I live in Michigan and needed someone to handle the sale, I asked the agent to handle it for a simple transaction fee. The agent handled all the paperwork, closing, etc and I had their bond to back up that this would all be done properly. I agreed to pay them $2,500 for their serivces. I checked with our atorney in the area and it was not really any cheaper. This is called a market rate for serives.

The point is that you get what you pay for. If you think you are paying sellmytimeshare to be a real estate agent for $500, you do not understand what things cost. If you get that you are paying $500 to ADVERTISE your time share on a WEBSITE and get some help in fielding offers, then you get it. You just have to decide what this is worth to you. If you want them to advertise it, pay the $500. If you want them to be your agent pay the commission.

Real estate agents cannot require upfront fees for listing houses for sale .... that's the big difference between them and timeshare upfront fee resale companies .... a legitimate timeshare resale company should take their fees after they sell at closing as realtors do.

Also, many upfront fee resale companies are lying to people telling them someone is waiting to buy their timeshare for big bucks, then when they get the credit card number and the upfront fee, they then tell the seller the buyers couldn't get financing, backed out or other lies but they keep the upfront fee .... this is deceitful, fraudulant and a scam.

Your situation is completely different ..... you paid for a service rendered .... apples to oranges.

Paul H, I think you have a very good point. I have read through this thread and wonder what folks are complaining about also. I just bought a Orlando Resale through another company. It was priced decent, etc.. The inventory was high, so I wonder how many get chosen or looked at. But I also tried to sell a vehicle before I bought the timeshare. I went on craigs list, my friend told me about it, and it was free. I got scammed and spammed wost than any timeshare company could ever do. 2 months later am still get spam. So I paid for an add that cost me $299 with 5 pictures and eventually sold it. Advertising cost money in case no one knew that. Everyone promises, and like Paul said "law of supply and demand". JayJay you obviously from reading these post have made yourself a "self proclaimed timeshare resale company hater" of which I am sure you have reason. You appear to miss represent for your own reasons. Maybe you work for Redweek, you promote them enough. I can tell you through a simple search in Google, or Bing only a few companies come up consistently. Certainly not Redweek or the other forumm Tug. When i advertise something I want the most exposure, Neither of your referenced companies has that on the web. Bottom line is and advertising company is an advertising company, you pay a fee. Try placing an ad in a local newspaper, theres something to cry about. Sorry, but I feel as though an advertising company is just that, AN ADVERTISING COMPANY, what is so hard to understand there. I hope my timeshare works out. But if not, on the resale market it goes, and yes a resale company.
