     On approximately the 12th of November, 2011, we were contacted by First Capital Financial , and they wanted to know if we would be interested in selling our Timeshare. We had just recently recieved the billing on our Maintainance Fees t hat were coming due.    

     We decided to try and sell it, and thru a few phone calls, and emails, were told that First Capital Financial had a confirmed buyer for our Timeshare.  Of course, the catch,  we had to send them a Certified Check in the amount of  $ 2276.00 to cover the " Sellers Processing Costs.

     We have been loading up their answering machines, as there is no one to answer the phones.  But any communications from them are surely few and far between, especially after they had the check in their hand.  We even recieved a contract , that looked very legal.

     After over a month of no return phone calls,  out of the blue, today we recieved yet another phone call from a person calling himself Daniel Myers, stating that he was a Loan Officer from First Capital Financial, and he informed us that our timeshare had been sold, and they were ready to send us a check for the Sale amount.

     Of course, then another catch.....we were told that we now have to pay a "Documental Stamp Tax" before the sale can be completed, and then we recieve our check from the sale.

     He then informed us that we were to send a certified check, from  Bank of America in the amount of $ 2683.16  to a Company called  Direct Specialists Corporation, even giving an Account # for the check to be deposited into.

AUTHOR: allenj - (United States of America)

     After receiving the second request for some additional monies, we still haven't heard anything else. The company never returned further phone calls that I have made, and we WILL NOT send any more money to them, for sure !     

     I am still dumping loads of messages on their answering machines, though !  We are NOT giving up yet !  I am glad to hear that we weren't the only "Suckers" to get scammed. I do hope that justice will eventually be done with these scumbags ! Thanks for the moral support.

#2 Consumer Comment

The seller does not pay in advance for a "closing"...

AUTHOR: MovingForward - (USA)

For a company to require you to send any money to them upfront is a huge red flag. When you sell real estate, any selling fees are deducted from the proceeds before the proceeds are distributed to you.

It is the oldest scam in the world for someone to claim they have a "check" from "selling" your timeshare and you have to send X to them before they will send you the check. In each and every instance it is a scam.

Don't send them any (more) money. Next time when someone calls and asks for money from you over the phone, don't send it. If you are unsure, get a (real) attorney to review the "contract" that the scammer sends.

I'm sorry you experienced this scam. But don't be so anxious to give away your hard earned money to strangers over the phone.
