I have linked Transfer America's BBB report above your initial inquiry. They are accredited members of the BBB with an excellent rating.
There is a definate difference when working with a timeshare company than with a timeshare transfer company. Tranfer companies will take title to your timeshare using all of the procedures required by the timeshare company. These companies require that you pay them to take the timeshare off your hands. It sounds counterintuitive but it does get you out from under the continuing obligations and the truth is, there are almost no buyers for timeshares. Please give us the name of the company you're dealing with, and we'll try to tell you whether this is a legitimate firm or one of the many many scam companies whose purpose is to separate people from their money. Since there is essentially no market for timeshare, many timeshare owner have utilized this option to transfer title.
