A North Carolina judge has granted a request from the attorney general's office to temporarily ban a Florida company from making false claims to timeshare owners.
Wake County Superior Court Judge Shannon R. Joseph granted Attorney General Roy Cooper's request to temporarily ban Premier
Timeshare Vacations, Inc. of Clearwater, Fla., also doing business as Paradise Marketing Group, from making telemarketing calls to North Carolina residents.
Cooper's complaint alleges that Premier made unsolicited telemarketing calls claiming it had buyers, but that the timeshare owner must agree to a contract and pay an upfront fee before the sale was complete. If the owner agreed, the telemarketer would transfer the owner to a verification department which recorded the owner giving permission to charge their credit card for up to $5,000.
