Problem started on 4/23/2012 when the Escrow company stoppped responding to all my attempts of contacting them via emails and phone calls. I iniatiated a sale of my two timeshare properties to Essentional Resorts International with Cindy Watts on 2/13/2012 when she sent me an Equity Appraisal form to fill out about both properties. Then on 03/02/2012 she sent me the Preliminary Offers for both properties, one for Sunset Resorts in Cancun Mexico for 11,800 and the othe was for Playa Grande in Cabo San Lucas for 13,800 both offers were signed by Julian Rosenthal the Acquistion Director and it was accepted and signed by me on 03/02/2012.

This appears to be a clever new timeshare resale scam. The salesman called and said they had a buyer for my timeshare and actually emailed scans of two checks from the buyer (Steve (Brian) Lafrain) for $2,700 (20% down) and $2,487 (processing fees). They also emailed a copy of a sales contract signed by Lafrain. The problem is that it appears to be just another scam. There is no information available on the company (other than their slick website), any searches go to the "real" Capital One Bank - not these guys. The contract has no information for the company and includes a requirement for the seller to pay $1,798 for title work, etc. While it says the buyer will receive their deposit back if the contract is terminated, there is NO provision for the seller to rece...
