I was looking to sell my timeshare in the Bahamas early last year (April/May 2007). I searched around for several companies to list it with. I contacted Castle Resorts International and Eugene Gordon returned my phone call. He was very optimistic about my property and quoted me a ridiculous price that he said he could get for me despite the fact that he couldnt even pronounce the name of the resort!
Because I was eager to sell more than anything, I listed with the company and put my money up front. After several unreturned calls, I finally called and left a vulgar, threatening message on his voice mail. He definitely called back the next day and confronted me about my message.
At this point, I was already fed up with getting the runaround. I asked about the progress of my property and got the same answer that everyone else has gotten: Its on the desk of several companies right now. Just be patient. That was the last time I have been able to get a hold of anyone.
The 800-number is not accepting any more messages, the fax number is now being used by a different company, and the building at 775 Warner Lane, Orlando FL where they worked out of is now for sale. Here is the listing:
I looked on whitepages.com and searched for Eugene Gordon. He is listed as the owner of a new company called Exclusive International Resorts. The address is: 12012 Lake Cypress Cir, Apt 203. Orlando, FL 32828-7070. The new fax number is: 407-386-6334. His new e-mail address is: firstname.lastname@example.org. (If the e-mail address doesn't show up in this report, go to whitepages.com & search for 'Eugene Gordon.' His new company and the new address of his new company will come up.)
I have been sending multiple daily messages to our friend Eugene to remind him that he can run, but he cannot hide. I would hope that everyone that has been hoodwinked by these idiots will join my daily campaign and bombard them with daily messages, voice mails, and faxes until they realize that we are not going away. They had no problem hounding me every day until I decided to list with their company. The way I see it, turn-about is fair play.
I have read other peoples postings about contacting lawyers and filing a class action suit. I am interested to hear how any legal situations end up; please update on the website. Also, Im down for a class action suit. If this p***k can disappear from one place and start a business in another, Im sure he can be issued a summons to appear in court. Id be glad to drive down there and deliver it to him!
The bottom line is: Im out $685 and although that is less than some other people got bilked out of, its enough that Im not just going to lay down and take one for the team. I want a resolution and if it means shelling out another $685 or more to take these slimy bastards to court, then so be it.
I would appreciate any comments, feedback, or updates on everyone elses situation.
