Newton Group Transfers, the nation’s #1 trusted timeshare exit company, is releasing an updated version of The Consumer’s Guide to Timeshare Exit this week. Written by president and co‐founder of Newton Group Transfers, Gordon Newton, the free guide is the first of its kind to publish everything a timeshare owner should know before beginning the exit process in one place.
The easy‐to‐read, comprehensive guide sheds light on the industry, while disclosing confusing contractual language often used by resorts to keep customers in the dark. Having worked as an executive in the timeshare exit industry for over a decade, Newton shares his industry knowledge and best practices, as well as common scams to avoid.
The National Insurance Crime Bureau (NICB) today issued a warning to the public about an organized scam involving sales of vehicles through the popular online market place, Craigslist.
Working with law enforcement agencies in the Chicago area and across the Midwest, NICB has identified nearly 100 instances of sales of vehicles that went sour when phony bank checks were used to pay for the vehicle.
“These scams are well organized and have all the appearances of being legitimate,” said NICB President and CEO Joe Wehrle. “But in the end, the criminal gets the car and the sellers or their financial institutions are left on the hook for thousands of dollars still owed on the car.”

The Los Angeles Police Department and the National Insurance Crime Bureau (NICB) are warning motorists of a growing problem with unauthorized tow truck operators in the LA area.
These “bandit” tow truck operators monitor police radios and respond to accidents seeking to hook up vehicles and tow them to body shops or storage facilities where they are held hostage until the motorists and their insurance companies pay inflated towing, storage and possibly repair charges to get the vehicle back.

“Across the country we’re seeing an alarming number of what we call staged accidents,” said Joe Wehrle, NICB president and chief executive officer. “These are crashes that are made to look like accidents, but in reality are carefully orchestrated scenarios aimed at collecting medical and vehicle damage payments from insurers. The simple truth is they are expensive and dangerous. We are working with our member insurance companies and law enforcement partners to put the people that commit these crimes behind bars.”
