Usual situation:  They called after hearing I had a timeshare to market.  Very convincing salesperson who called from New York State. Claimed to have a buyer available, and told me it would be a 30-45 day turn-around from sign to sale to check. That was 6 weeks ago.  Have no contract, no check.

Calling the customer service number on the website is met with a recording that the phone is unavailable due to "technical difficulties". 

Email, via the form on their website, will get you a response, provided you word it correctly.  They do not like to be called scammers, thieves, or con artists and a "Yolanda" will generally call back within 24 hours to explain how you are wrong. Be warned though - her way of dealing is to shout and talk over you, without ever giving you a chance to speak. It does get under her skin though - even though my money is most likely permanently gone, I can at least amuse myself by tormenting a scammer.

Phone messages left for Calvin Summers (631-522-6706) have gone unanswered.

Even worse?  Innovative Resorts will send you out a professional looking folder  with your contracts, complete with  yet another brochure asking for donations to the "American Patriot Heroes' Fund", describing how it is a fund set up to help US veterans.  The envelope they enclose for you to send donations is addressed to the Jericho NY address.  They also enclose two DVDs which I have never looked at but would be happy to provide to law enforcement officials.

Cost to me for being stupid:  $1,999.00

Who are you?

AUTHOR: Rachel - (U.S.A.)

US Advocacy Program:: Who are you? I can't search anything about you on the internet. That is very concerning to me because there are companies like yours that ARE A SCAM IN THEMSELVES. People like you feed on the already "broken" customers of these timeshare companies. I've seen real nice professional letters that you input your name and send it off to the timeshare company you got screwed from.  You know what those timeshare companies do with those letters, LAUGH at them. There is nothing you can get from a letter demanding a refund. These people are licensed with the proper documents and legal contracts to lock you in to the contract that you can't get out of. Basically you signed a contract that has a cancellation period and also says that they are not real estate brokers which means they are not going to help you sell your property....what you got was an advertisement. Read your contract carefully, they are in black and white and no one over the phone needs to explain it to you. There is no way out of these contracts, and I find it very hard for a so called advocacy agency can do something that a lawyer and an attorney general can't even do. A lawyer will tell you real quick that you will waste money trying to fight it. The attorney general can't do anything because when they apply to the state, their documents get approved. These companies don't just pop up out of no where, they are licensed. So complaining to the state that approved the business is a waste. What the person over the phone tells you may not be what's on the contract, so the only defense you can have is to read what your getting into. I'd love to get the money I wasted a long time ago, but well written arguments don't cut it. People out there only helped me spend money on invisible crap!
