Thank you for your consideration in helping us better educate the over 12 million Fractional Asset or Timeshare owners worldwide and help them avoid the common sales misrepresentations and resale scams.

Thank you for your consideration in helping us increase awareness and better educate the 12 million existing Fractional Asset or Timeshare owners, and potential future owners, about the many types of programs available, but more importantly, how to avoid the sales misrepresentations and resale scams that they are likely to encounter.

We are raising an initial $250,000 to cover the cost of printing and distributing our 40 page Special Report called Understanding Fractional Asset Programs for free at major destination tourist information centres, travel and car rental agencies, airports and public libraries within North America, Hawaii and the Caribbean.

Our Special Report addresses the common issues that continue to cost consumers tens of millions of dollars each year needlessly. We are not Anti-Timeshare - in fact, we like the timeshare model and seek merely to make owners and buyers more aware of the Pro's and Con's of owning such assets.

Under the right circumstances owning fractional type assets or resort membership programs can offer a solid holiday savings value. However, Timeshares are not suitable rental property investments, although they are often sold as such.

Over 80% of all timeshare owners love and use their assets each year. However, many owners do not fully understand how their programs work, or why that rental income promised when they purchased never arrives.

Many owners also believe incorrectly that their assets will appreciate in value over time, and worse, they are often misled or defrauded when attempting to resell their assets. Resale scams alone cost consumers over 10 million a year needlessly.

Our Understanding Fractional Asset Programs (5.375” x 8.375” in size) booklet outlines the many diverse programs offered within the global timeshare industry, from membership type programs to deeded interest, from fixed week to flexible weeks, and the most common deceptive sales practices that often come with buying or selling these assets.

The goal is to help every traveler better understand these assets, their costs and the potential scams they may come across over time before they attend a sales presentation.

This is a collective effort made possible only through the financial support of people like you, contributors who care about protecting consumers from these types of frauds. The type that ruin millions of family holidays annually at destination resorts and turn family finances into chaos at times.

The goal is to reach over 5 million readers through mass distribution of the free printed copies of our booklet, and sharing of the digital PDF e-booklet version. You will receive the full 40 page e-booklet with any level of contribution, but please share our Campaign link first, and not the e-Booklet itself with your social crowds.

We hope to continue printing and distributing booklets for many years to come, provided we can raise the funds to do so or find suitable sponsors to support our efforts. By 2015 we plan to offer versions of the booklet in Spanish and other languages as demand warrants for future Editions.

Through these efforts we will deliver a powerful educational awareness publication directly into the hands of the consumer before they travel in most cases. The objective is to make them better aware of the risks and costs of owning a Timeshare, and thereby reduce their exposure to the potential frauds.

Please contribute what you can and consider helping us distribute booklets within your place of employment, local church, country club or simple promote this campaign through your own social media network contracts,

Thank You for your support in advance.
