Fraudulent 'exchange brokerage company' Destination Services made several phone calls from phone number (951)603-5007 on 12/12, 12/14, and 12/16/2012. A receptionist with a heavy latin accent put through to someone by name of Jayson Marcello, Verification Officer, and he advised me that as a timeshare owner for many years, I had accumulated 6 bonus weeks that they (Destination Services) could rent for me at $3600.00 per week, plus they would also pay $750.00 for the 2012 maintenance fees; That I would have to pay upfront fees of $199.00 per week for the exchange operation of their clients (to a timeshare resort in Cancun, Mexico).
At the time, I was not able to get through to my timeshare company, to consult this operation. I fell to the scheme, so I gave my credit card info over the phone and on 12/19/2011 my credit card was charged $598.00 by Gill's Secretarial Services and $597.00 by Triple Ace Enterprise FL.
After finally consulting with my timeshare company I understood that this was a scam. I filed claims with my bank and got my money back. On 12/21/2011 I tried to call Destination Services, but the original phone number was disconnected. On 12/22/2011 Tanya Edwards from Destination Services called me to advise me that my check was being prepared to be sent by Fedex, but apologized and said that there was a little delay. She also said their phone number had been changed to (530)217-6015, and when I inquired about Jayson Marcello she told me that he no longer worked there. I told her that I did not want any further business with them and that I knew they were conducting fraudulent transactions.
However, on 12/29/2012 the scammers called me twice and left a message that the transactions had not gone through properly and that they would try again to withdraw the funds from my account. I was also prompted to call back on 1/06/2012 to finalize the transaction.
