FTC Returns Money to Victims of Timeshare Resale Scam: FTC Press Release June 23, 2017




FTC@100 Banner

The Federal Trade Commission is mailing 338 checks totaling more than $319,000 to people who lost money to Information Management Forum Inc., which also did business as Vacation Property Marketing, and its owner, Edward Lee Windsor.
The defendants lured consumers into paying “registration fees” for their services by making unsolicited telemarketing calls to timeshare owners and falsely claiming to have renters or buyers lined up for the timeshare property. In 2013, they were banned from selling timeshare resale services, and from telemarketing.
Check recipients will receive full refunds based on information they reported to law enforcement. The average amount is $945.
Recipients should deposit or cash checks within 60 days. If they have questions about the case, they should contact the FTC’s refund administrator, Analytics, at 855-907-3187.
