The Minnesota Department of Commerce has uncovered 11 unlicensed sham companies targeting timeshare owners falsely claiming to be able to sell or rent their properties and scamming them into paying thousands of dollars in transaction costs that never result in a sale or rental of their properties.
The Better Business Bureau of Minnesota and North Dakota (BBB) is issuing a nationwide alert in regard to Platinum Resort Services, a company which claims to offer services to those interested in buying, selling or renting resort and timeshare properties.
