Upholding the Rights of Consumers

False advertising, undue influence, unconscionable acts or practices, unfair methods of competition, unconscionable pricing, and charging for services never provided, are some of the many unfair and deceptive practices rogue companies use to defraud consumers. These deceptive business practices also distort the marketplace by allowing dishonest businesses to gain an unfair advantage over ethical competitors. Federal and state laws provide consumers with broad protection from unfair and illegal business practices.

By retaining Boukzam Law, consumers and businesses will be given the right to redress the issue at hand. Boukzam Law advises consumers as well as businesses whether to and how to pursue legal action to halt and obtain compensation for the deceptive practices of corporations. With a blend of courage, superior legal and negotiation skills, and high principles, protection of our clients’ interests and helping them achieve their goals by applying highly-complex consumer protection laws against those that have defrauded them is our number one priority.

ABOUT BOUKZAM LAW

Boukzam Law focuses on Consumer Advocacy and Consumer Rights. In 1980, the Federal Trade Commission unleashed the ultimate consumer protection weapon against abusive and dishonest companies—The Unfair and Deceptive Trade Practices Act. This Federal law is mirrored by nearly every state in the United States and is upheld nationwide. State laws give great weight to the interpretations of the Federal Trade Commission and the federal courts relating to s. 5(a)(1) of the Federal Trade Commission Act, 15 U.S.C. s. 45(a)(1). These Consumer Protection Laws are designed to protect the consuming public and legitimate businesses from those who engage in unfair methods of competition, or unconscionable, deceptive, and unfair practices or acts in the conduct of trade or commerce.

The laws are designed to prevent businesses that engage in fraud or unfair practices from gaining an advantage over competitors. They also provide additional protection for those most vulnerable in the marketplace—the consumer. The Act requires businesses to disclose detailed information about products to the consumer, such as, terms and conditions, rights to cancel, full disclosure of the extent of debt, and to choose other products or services without being pressured or mislead. With this law, consumers and businesses who have been victimized by unfair and deceptive practices, hold the right to redress injuries.

Boukzam Law represents timeshare consumers who have been victimized by abusive and predatory business practices. More often than not, a consumer’s signature on a timeshare contract is obtained under fraudulent circumstances—a violation under the FTC’s Unfair and Deceptive Trade Practices Act of 1980. The Firm also focuses on protecting the client’s credit under the FDCPA (Fair Debt Collections Practices Act) while a purchase, contract, or agreement is under dispute.

Other legal benefits Boukzam Law is able to provide victims are the following:

  • Complete discharge of your Timeshare ownership (legally and financially)
  • Protect your credit under the FDCPA ruling
  • Eliminate all communication from resort to client
  • Request balance to be reported as PAID IN FULL
  • Legally binding Settlement Agreement Letter
  • Fair settlement of just claims including compensation for misrepresentation and fraudulent conduct
  • Attorney-Client relationship is 100% confidential

Not all cases are accepted. Please call the firm for a free case analysis.

TIMESHARE LAW

Since 1974, when the first timeshare facility was built, over 7 million people purchased timeshares under the perception that they were making an investment in real estate. As timeshare owners now realize, their “vacation property” is a money pit, selling the timeshare is virtually impossible, and the re-sale and transfer market is exceedingly difficult and non-profitable. Sales people have been selling timeshares by deceiving consumers, violating the Federal Trade Commission’s Unfair and Deceptive Trade Practice Act (15 U.S.C.A. § 45(a)(1)). The statute declares that “unfair methods of competition in or affecting commerce, and unfair or deceptive acts or practices in or affecting commerce” are hereby declared unlawful.

Timeshare developers and its agents have been violating this Federal Statute as well as State consumer protection statutes which emulate this federal law. The right to redress, the right to receive a fair settlement of just claims, including possible compensation for misrepresentation, inferior goods or unsatisfactory services will be exercised by an attorney specializing in Consumer Protection/Rights Law.

Boukzam Law can cancel your timeshare contract through direct resort negotiations, state and regulatory filings, and/or litigation. It’s important to understand that the client is contractually obligated by this enforceable timeshare contract. From a legal perspective; it is necessary to make a legal determination as to whether statutory and/or contractual defenses may be employed. Boukzam Law uses these violations as leverage in seeking timeshare cancellation or voluntarily surrendering ownership back to the resort via negotiation.
