|Details of criminal activity:||Telemarketers for National Solutions placed cold calls to timeshare owners, falsely representing that they had actual buyers interested in purchasing the victim’s unit. Many victims were told that their closings would occur within a matter of days. To accept the deal, victims were required to pay hefty advanced fees (often as much as several thousand dollars), which would supposedly be refunded at closing. The entire business, however, was a fraud. Despite collecting fees from their victims, the National Solutions companies never succeeded in selling a single timeshare unit and indeed made little effort even to market the properties for sale.|
Over 2,500 timeshare owners across the country were scammed by National Solutions to the tune of more than $6 million.
