I was contacted by a Francisco Cobian stating who stated he was calling form the investigations department within Profeco. He stated with the new President I Mexico they were cracking down on time share scams and he wanted to help me. He knew I was previously scammed out of money and needed the necessary documentation to go to the bank on my behalf to get my money back and that he needed proof of previous wires sent, police report and what information I sent the FBI. I sent him all the necessary information and he assured me he would not need or ask for any money. He called me back and said he was sorry for all that happened and that he was able to get my money back but in order to get my money back I need to pay $1k. The money could be paid with a credit card via PayPal and this... Read More

We got an unsolicited call from someone pretending to work for Opodo with an offer to purchase our membership with Bahia Principe Privilege Club at a double the price we paid in 2015. After confirming our interest, we got a formal offer via email.
Then we got contact by another person from Terri James law office with the paperwork, and the another person pretending to be from Bahia for the transfer process which requires 2600 USD to get the release certificate approval.

We were lucky to be suspicious to cancel the whole thing before it was too late. We c... Read More

Call saying they have an approved buyer for the Timeshare. The sale is 100% guaranteed. Send $650 for Lawyer and Title work. When you start pressing them for details on purchaser agreement and title work and escrow the hang up.

Received “letter of intent” to purchase timeshares for much more than initial purchase price. They controlled esscrow company and offer had a 5% broker fee along with a 5% hold back after purchase. Website and voicemail are simply shells and not professional.

My husband and I received a phone call in regards to selling our travel smart vip membership. We were offered $50,000 for our $35000 membership. We were of course interested. We were then called by a law firm by the name of terrijames law office. We were emailed extensive documentation. We checked out the law firm, everything looked 100% legitimate. The only catch was that we had to pay off our amount owing of $28000. We were then contacted by travel smart to whom sent us all of the wire information. These were not the real travel smart people and my money is gone. This was our savings for my husbands upcoming medical treatments.
This has absolutely ruined our lives. They still answer travel smart from one number and Terri James law office from the other. We are devastated, We h... Read More
