Raymond called saying he had a buyer for my timeshare. Great I thought, I asked him how he got my name and he said it was off the listing from the company that I had signed with. Since I had signed with a company I didn't think much about it. So he puts me in contact with his assistant Stacy Thomas.
We discuss everything, prices and how the whole process would work. I voiced my reservations about the money they were asking for the service of selling my timeshare and she explained it very thoroughly about the title/deed search and how they had to make sure that the property in question wasn't in foreclosure or already sold. Sounded reasonable I thought. She told me I could call her every day to check on how things were progressing.
This was on Febuary 1, 2011. On February 14th I called and left a message on Ray's phone as the message on Stacy's message was garbled. I left him a message to please call me. Then today I called again and one of the numbers was no longer working and I wasn't able to enter either Ray's or Stacy's extensions. Should have know it was too good to be true.
This afternoon I sent them email letting them know that I have filed complaints of fraud with the FTC, the attorney general in Washington and also with my bank. My bank is crediting the money back to me while they investigate. Hopefully it all works out and it isn't going to be a hugh costly mistake.
These people are great talkers and make you believe pretty much whatever they tell you. So a word of wisdom................. when you get that "it sounds too good to be true call", it is too good to be true....... Just say NOOOOOOOO.
