Encounter time share brokers?
Anyone encountered time share brokers?
Seems that there're many of such brokers around that offered to help you sell the time share contract on condition that you pay a registration fee of a few hundred dollars and a maintenance fee of $1k to $6k for up to 5 years of broker service, with no guarantee of sale.
Had a relative that was conned into buying time-share and was recently approached by several brokers, all claiming to be big and reputable but with the same dubious terms.

There's more of them now than ever before. They are con artist who are trained in hard sell tactics.
