Trans Caribbean Trust (TCT) owned and run by Tom Riley and Bill Mabra sold us a property in 2004 located on Cozumel on Pelican Beach and promised my husband and I that there were plans in place to build a road, install electricity, and that the land was "zoned" to build a 2 story house. WHAT A LIE!
This man's assets should be frozen by the IRS and the money should be given back to the people that he has screwed! I do believe he is American.
Since 2004 when we purchased this lot, we have taken several trips there, only to be turned away by police and told that we have no right to be there. The "road" if you can call it that, is not a road, but a sandy path that you are unable to drive on without 4 wheel drive, and approximately 3 years ago, I received paperwork from Mr. Riley (all in Spanish mind you) regarding the zoning and had it translated. It basically stated that we would never be able to build what Tom promised we would be able to build there, as the beach area is a "nature reserve" and that only minimal "eco huts" can be put up on the lots, no electricity, no plumbing, no roads, no movement of the sand, etc, etc..
Trans Caribbean Trust, TCT, is a 3 letter word for "STEAL YOUR MONEY" and I hope that some justice is brought to the victims of Tom Riley.
It appears that after reading the few posts that have been left here, that my husband and I were not the only ones swindled out of our life savings and that this man should be put in a prison!
Tom and Bill Mabra: if you are reading this: Donald Trump never developed that side of the island as you promised he was going to, now could you kindly return my money? We would like it back; it took a long time for us to save it!
