The Mindtimeshare blog and Twitter feed launched by head of RDO’s Enforcement team, Alberto Garcia, early this year, have proved to be a huge success and valuable tools in the fight against timeshare fraud.
The blog constantly achieves high rankings on Google searches, simply by providing accurate details of suspected fraudulent companies that are cold-calling timeshare owners and trying to con them.
“We have received messages from many grateful owners who had found my blog by chance while searching on Google, as the information provided stopped them from becoming victims of crime,” says Alberto Garcia.
The number of visitors to the blog has increased steadily since it started in January 2011, and so has the number of enquiries received by Enforcement, which has trebled in the past three months. Calls from concerned owners often provide valuable evidence that can be used in the fight against fraud.
