In October 2013, on a visit to Los Cabos, we were enticed into a timeshare presentation with the promise of free rounds of golf at famous golf courses in the area. We were taken by van to "Los Cabos Golf Resort", over an unfinished dirt road that led to a gate-guarded property in sight of the local Walmart. We were offered breakfast, toured the vacation resort property, and then we were led into a large room where other guests were sitting at various tables listening to timeshare sales talks.

We were asked if we ever owned any timeshares; we said we own Mayan. They offered to buy our Mayan timeshare at a premium in exchange for buying a timeshare at Los Cabos Golf Resort. Since we hardly used our Mayan timeshare this was very attractive. Supposedly, the deal would result in a net $16,000+ to us. By that time we had been there nearly 3 hours and had spent over an hour listening to their talk about the merits of this deal. At times, we were "two-teamed" by salesmen. Almost exhausted by this time and wanting to get out of there, we agreed to the deal, then signed many papers, supposed "closing documents" for the transaction. We used our American Express card to pay $15,000 (plus transaction fees) for the Los Cabos Golf Resort property; we were led to believe that within 180 days, we would be given the $16,000 in exchange for our Mayan property, per the "Escrow" document among the closing papers. As other victims have reported, this is a false promise based on worthless documentation.

Beware! We were told by the sales team and we signed several documents waiving our rights of recission and verifying that we had received all goods and services as promised. We later learned that Mexican Consumer laws allow 5 days for recission, that this right of recission cannot be waived, that this information was intentionally misrepresented and concealed from us. Internet research revealed that many others have been scammed by these crooks.

We have hired a Mexican attorney to file an action in Mexico and we have filed a dispute with American Express. However, we believe we have only a small hope of recovery of our money, given the clever way the sales documents are drafted by these crooks. NOTE: This property was previously known by other names including Signature Residence Club. The merchant named on the American Express payment slip is "Luxxury Leisure Colletion (Jogolo S.A. de C.V.)." Other name on the documents: "Premier Property Management."

Possible class action

AUTHOR: D.L. Scottsdale, AZ - ()

Thank you for your comments about the Los Cabos timeshare scam "Los Cabos Country Club". As noted we have an attorney in Cabo looking into this for us and pressing a claim with the federal Consumer Affairs office. However, I would not be surprised if the result is a verdict, finding or judgment against a corporate entity that has "empty pockets." Given the number of complaints we discovered, it is likely that the scammers have figured out ways to protect their assets from seizure. If however, you are able to find an attorney who feels there is merit to our claims, that recovery is possible and who is willing to fund a class action suit, then we would be willing to join in.

Our situation is eerily similiar to yours. We too "sold" our existing membership to Los Cabos Country Club resort for a generous price with the promise of our money paid within 90-120 days....Of course, now reading the numerous complaints from so many others, we're not holding our breath. I'm no longer embarrassed that we got taken..I'm furious they keep getting away with it!! I'd love to join you in your legal fight to shut these scammers down for good..They are a detriment to the Mexican economy and reputation. Please contact me via trip advisor (marie_2012 canada) Let's get a class action law suit going to get our hard earned money back!! There are 102 other posts from victims who I'm sure would love to join the fight.

Los Cabos Golf Resort Scam

AUTHOR: BetzabethT - ()

Most timeshare companies are taking advantage of people, often those who are more vulnerable and less able to resist hard sales tactics.  I have heard of many cases where maintenance costs rise well above inflation.  It would appear the timeshare companies lock people into contracts and then drive up their profits though increased maintenance charges. It would be good to see legislation whereby timeshare companies can only charge "reasonable" maintenance costs and not use this annual fee to fleece people's bank accounts
