Federal Timeshare Fraud Defense Attorney

A timeshare enables travelers to own a percentage of a vacation condo or townhome and to access that unit for a specific time period each year. In some cases, timeshare owners will rent out their weeks to other parties when they do not plan to use them. Reselling timeshares is also a common practice. Throughout all of these activities, different types of timeshare fraud can take place. Whether you are a timeshare developer or a timeshare owner, you may be facing serious charges of fraud related to your timeshare property. A conviction of federal-level charges can result in substantial and life-changing punishments. With this in mind, building a strong defense against the charges with a qualified timeshare fraud defense lawyer is essential.

Understanding Timeshare Fraud
The unfortunate reality is that the timeshare industry is riddled with fraudulent practices. This means that even those who are conducting business ethically may be subject to a fraud investigation and even brought up on timeshare fraud charges. There are many examples of timeshare-related fraud occurring, but you should be aware that there is not an actual charge for timeshare fraud. Instead, you may be facing charges for crimes like mail fraud, wire fraud, bank fraud, racketeering and conspiracy. These are federal criminal offenses that carry hefty penalties. Often, the Federal Trade Commission initiates an investigation into a timeshare fraud claim, but other law enforcement agencies may be involved as well.

The wide range of potential charges that a defendant may face is directly associated with the fact that this type of fraud comes in many forms. For example, a bogus timeshare offer or a deceptive marketing message conveyed through the U.S. Postal Service is a form of mail fraud. If the offer or message is conveyed via a text message, an email or another type of electronic means, the charge of wire fraud may stand. Racketeering may be charged when a coordinated scheme is established to repeatedly commit fraud. With these and other examples of timeshare-related fraud charges, a person or company being investigated for such crimes should seek counsel from an experienced defense attorney.

Penalties for Timeshare Fraud
The Federal Trade Commission Act specifically prohibits deceptive and unfair commerce acts. Through the FTC Act, the FTC is permitted to pursue restitution for impacted consumers. It can also seek an injunction and take civil action. In addition to these potential outcomes of timeshare fraud, the individual or company may be tried in a federal court for other serious charges. The penalties for these charges vary considerably.

For example, if you are convicted of a racketeering charge, your punishment could include a large fine, up to 20 years in prison and the requirement to return all profits and property gained through illegal activities. Wire fraud can be punished by a $250,000 fine, up to 20 years in prison and up to three years of supervised release from prison. Felony mail fraud is punished with up to a $250,000 fine and up to five years in prison. You should be aware that many defendants who are found guilty of timeshare fraud face multiple charges, and the sentences could be served consecutively.

Defense Strategies for Timeshare Fraud
While timeshare fraud is a serious matter and a conviction could come with devastating penalties, there are several defense strategies that your attorney may employ to obtain justice in court or before the case reaches a courtroom. For example, an attorney may argue that evidence was collected through an illegal search and is not admissible. In some cases, the attorney may attempt to prove that fraud did not actually take place or that the fraud was not knowingly and willfully committed. Keep in mind that there may be opportunities for the attorney to work for reduced charges or for a plea bargain before the matter reaches the courtroom using these or other defense strategies.

Consult with a Defense Attorney
The possibility of spending many years in federal prison and paying tens or hundreds of thousands of dollars in fines is real if you are facing pending or active timeshare fraud charges. However, effective defense strategies can be used to produce a more favorable outcome for you. Your experienced criminal defense attorney can work to achieve the most optimal outcome available under the law, but he or she will need ample time to prepare and execute the defense strategy. To learn more about the strength of your case and the defense options available, schedule a consultation with a fraud defense attorney today.

I was hesitant to hire the Spodek Law Group. I read reviews and knew they have a great reputation. However, I thought I would spend money and not see or speak to my attorney. From the beginning to end of my case Todd and the entire staff were available and willing to help. We worked towards and end result that was way above my expectation and Todd delivered. I am forever grateful for patience and long days and night spent working on my case. Thanks Todd and the entire team!

My attorney at Spodek was Abigail. She was very knowledgeable and helpful with all my questions and concerns, as well as responsive. Her fees are affordable and Abigail took the time to make sure I understood everything relating to my case. I highly recommend Abigail and will request her services in the future.

I'm very satisfied with the services rendered by Todd, Alex and Mary Lou. I whole heartedly recommend Spodek Law Group . I've worked with and have retained other attorneys in the past with Todd's firm being the cream of the crop for many reasons. A very serious legal matter was resolved after a year's hard work and effort. Todd expertly guided me through the process and was able to navigate and make the good journey bearable as well as successful. Mary Lou initially provided excellent assistance before referring my case to Todd. Alex's support was effective and timely. The customer portal (MyCase) is an invaluable communication tool that also kept track of my case. Various aspects of my case were explained and there were several options provided but I made the final decision of how the case would be handled. The legal fee was reasonable considering the effort and amount of work plus it was a flat fee regardless of the length of time required to conclude my case. Todd made himself available to me and we had many scheduled meetings to go over the progress and to discuss the next steps. I felt more confident after many discussions with him. You will not go wrong choosing Spodek Law Group for legal matters.

Being that it was the first time that I was in need of an attorney, I was afraid and hesitant and knew I needed the absolute best. It is beyond understood why Spodek Law Group has a reputation of being the top, if not the best law firm in New York. Alex and Abigail were there every step of the way even at the most unconvenient hours. I could not have asked for more. They are extremely good at what they do and they delivered much much more than just winning my case. A big thank you to Alex and Abigail for all the guidance and counseling and their upmost loyal support that extended far more than just legally. If you need the absolute best than don't hesitate to hire Spodek Law Firm.
I cannot tell you how thankful I am to Todd and Alex for their hard work and dedication to my case. I had never been in any trouble before but I had an unfortunate event occur and in the midst of COVID-19 at that therefore I knew I needed a team that was dedicated to my success. Today- my case has been finalized and I’m walking away with no record and can continue life as a mother and a Grad student worry free. I cannot express enough gratitude for their assistance.
