Timeshare Scams and Fraud

We have been Disney Vacation Club members since 1998. Living in Florida, historically we would book an extended weekend four times a year. Now, in 2014, I have to book at least 12 months in advance, according to the employee at Disney Vacation Club in order to reserve a room. In March, I attempted to book a room at either Vero Beach or Hilton Head for the months of June, July or August. I was willing to take any day of the week for all three months. I should be able to book either a 1, 2 or 3 bedroom villas 6 months in advance. But NOTHING was available! When I spoke with Disney Vacation Club they quickly sent me to a third party timeshare re-seller. Disney Vacation Club has obviously sold more timeshares than they have rooms available.

After receiving a telephone contact from a representative of Timeshare Resale Source, I entered into a contract, effective 10/28/12, with this entity for advertisement and sale of a vacation rewards program which I had purchased. The Timeshare representative led me to believe that I could receive between $8500 and $10,000 from sale of my vacation rewards membership. I paid Timeshare the required $997 advertisement fee. The contract that I entered into included an option for me to request in writing that a real estate broker submit an offer on behalf of and for Timeshare Resale Source to purchase my "timeshare." I exercised the broker purchase option by submitting the required, completed form on 10/21/13. After numerous follow-up phone calls to Timeshare Resale Source an... Read More

Received a call regarding timeshare sale and being that I had the timeshare listed with a resale site, I assumed it was them (unfortunately was preoccupied with husband health issues). Sent money order to company as requested, received paperwork. Heard nothing further. Was told money was for title fees, etc. Closing dates continued to be put off. Requested refund and was given buyer and closing company names and numbers, spoke to both of them, assuming legit. Got call about closing issues (unpaid taxes) Paid an additional 600+. No close date. Requested refund, nothing received. This occurred over 5 months. Last calls - found all numbers out of order and BBB unable to follow up on claim.

Anne Singer contacted us as a buyer of condos starting a new business. She was conveniently unavailable but her faithful attorney, Samuel Kaplan, would be in touch. Ms. Singer was mailing a money order from which we were to take our $500 good faith deposit and send on the rest to Mr. Singer. This in itself sounded peculiar.
Ms singer was abrupt and impatient about the speed in which this transaction was to happen and appalled that we would even consider involving our own atty. At this point, with a little detective work, we found the same couple on this website in various forms. Needless to say, we asked them never to contact us again.

We have invested roughly $3979.00 in selling our resort with this company. They contacted us, we sent the money, was sent a contract, sent money for closing, and now cannot contact them. They refuse to answer our class, emails, or texts. I am very frustrated and want our money NOW!
