Timeshare Scams and Fraud

We were contacted to sell our vacation package to Master International. They drew up a contract offering $5,000. more than we had paid for it. The sent us a letter of intent showing that a company from Japan was purchasing a lot of 100 packages. They sent a bank statement from Citibanamex showing the money in an escrow account. Amanda Gill called and went over the contract and explained that we needed to pay $1570 for a Temporary (90 day) Naturalization and $550. for a Tax Identification number because our package was in Mexico. She reassured us that the money would be reimbursed by the buyer. We got a statement showing that the money had been deposited into our account. There were many other fees and taxes that came up, each time the money was reimbursed in the bank accou... Read More

Had all of my information on a timeshare resort I own. He said he can rent the extra getaway weeks. He wanted $4,200 in advance. I said no, since you already rented them and you said you had my money, send my money first then I will send you yours.
So he made a payment on Amex for rental money and I send him money. He then after the wire went through reversed the payment on Amex. My bank is working on getting my money back. Raymond Taylor

I have signed paperwork allowed me to get a cancellation and $3000 refund back to my CC based off some extreme financial difficulties that occurred 3 weeks after I initially signed up for the vacation club.

After feeling the typical pressure & woo of being in the club & talking with the salespeople I was excited, but after reading reviews and getting the service I've been getting afterwards - this is the biggest scam ever.

I've sent over 8 emails (in order to have proof) with screenshots, names and dates in order to get my refund that the company signed paperwork stating I would get. It's been over 26 days (they said 15 for refund) and I've gotten no response from anybody.

I have talked to sales broker George Micheals and Amanda Gill senior Broker, of Master International Company, 1090 3rd Ave #9B, New York, NY 10065 and Richard Shore Head Escrow Officer of Management Group International, 132 Columbus Ave, New York, NY 10023 for the last 2 months. In that time they all very nice and answered all my questions, encourage me to check them out. I was very apprehensive because it was to good to be true and seemed quite simple. Letter of Intent, Sales aggrandizement and Citibanamex's trust application were sent to me, I was told at the beginning we would not have to send any money or pay any fees. (which didn't sound right to me) I went along with everything as long as we did not have to put our Social Security information or have to pay any money. Whe... Read More

This was a very elaborate well planned scam. A friend of my nevwas contacted from Magnum Realty by phone in April 2018 to sell her timeshare. She passed the info to me and I called them. Chris Johnson told me to send by timeshare info and that they were representing companies that wanted to buy time shares in Mexico for their employees to visit. They sent us an offer and contract. They contacted us by phone and email. Early in the deal, they started asking for money for a tax number and taxes for the state of Narit. The deal seemed very real as we talked to someone from the SAT office is n Mexico and the buyer Frances Harrington from the UK. Erickn Esparasa was our contact at Capital Transfer. Every time we paid money, the money appeared on n an escrow account. We finally agreed ... Read More
