Complaint Review: Coastal Timeshare Creations
Coastal Timeshare Creations I was scammed out of thousands of dollars! Hilton Head Island South Carolina
*General Comment: avoid timeshare scams
I approached Coastal Timeshare Creations out of curiosity after reading their advertising on their windows. The receptionist scheduled a meeting for me to meet T-- the next day. I explained to Ted that I have owned a mostly enjoyable timeshare through Spinnaker since 1997. He said to me that he had something better. We proceeded to have a hurried up fast-paced meeting as he claimed that he had to be somewhere.
T-- offered to take My Spinnaker timeshare, sell it, and give me the proceeds. He explained that they usually sell in 2-4 months. When I asked him what would happen if he couldn't sell it, he replied that his company would buy it. In return, He was going to sell me a vacation that worked on RCI points. I had to pay him $2500 that day with a credit card. The remaining balance of Approximately $15,000 was to be divided between his bill collecting department and a RCI Rewards credit card that I was approved for that day.
T-- placed a $7,500 charge on my RCI Rewards credit card but told me not to worry as it would be paid off with the sale of my Spinnaker property. Once Spinnaker sold, I would be able to pay off the $15,000 in charges as well as recoup the $2500 down payment. I put my trust in T--. That was a huge mistake!
I was scammed! He lied to me and deceived me so that he could put me over $20,000 in debt (including interest) knowing that my Spinnaker property would never sell. I filed a complaint against CTC in December of 2016 that remains unresolved.
I have also filed a dispute and a fraud claim With Barclay Bank, the lender on the RCI card. I thought everything was settled a few months ago, but then the charge mysteriously reappeared again on my credit report. I was supposed to close yesterday on a refinance of my home. That loan is in jeopardy as the lender did a soft credit pull and noticed the Barclay Bank charge. Now my debt to income ratio is too high.
