Mike Howe poses as an unsolicited interested buyer, Greg Vance poses as island Coast Lending loan officer there is also a phoney website. There is no record of such a company on the web or the bbb of s.c (better business burea) Mike Howe will sound so convincingly as an honest buyer and family man.then comes the scam, seller is asked to help pay closing cost in amount of $1000.00 this is also encouraged by Greg Vance who is also using subtitity to reel you in.

I had someone from there sale department call me by the name Florence asking if we wanted to sell are time share. So my husband I thought about it and we were not using it no more. We say yes why not . Timeshare Resales Source send us the paper work we had to sing and send them a fee for marketing of $998.00 that was pay by my husband card. And if they did not sell are time share in laps of ten months we can put a offer to them with there broker. So they can gives between 5000 to 8000 .
So we did ask the broker to offer us a price and to my surprise they offer us $79.09 plus we still had to pay them $479.00 on top of that. So at the end of all of this they still won and took are money $998.00.
Please help us .

I have signed two contracts with this company to rent some weeks of my Interval timeshare.
I have payed $5,400 to rent 27 weeks to receive $39,810 minus taxes. That was around july on 2013 and they have not given me any money, when supposly they have a client for the weeks the deals go off and they ask you to be patient and to wait another months, the post an advertising on their site but you have no warranty at all because they are liars.
They will give you nothing at all.
I'm writting a legal complaint.
