We went to a seminar where we were supposed to give up our timeshare so we didn't have to pay maint.fees anymore, we paid $3,995 and were told that they were taking it over. We just received our 2014 bill for maint. 0f $2,068. What a ripoff. We never heard from Pacific Transfer after many phonecalls from us and even registered letters. No one contacted us ever. What is our next step?????

#1 UPDATE Employee ..inside information

Maintenance Fee bill does not mean you have to pay

AUTHOR: Tespinoza - ()

In response to your claim that you paid us $3995 and was told you would not have to pay another maintenance fee bill is correct. Just because you received a bill for 2014 does not mean you have to pay it. Have you contacted the office? Not( Pacific Transfers) ? In most cases, the company will take care of it.

Another reason you may have received a bill is if you were out of compliance with the title company. If you are not cooperating with the title company and did not get closing docs back in a timely manner , you will be responsible for additional fees, which is the biggest reason why clients continue to receive, and pay fees to the resort.

One of the biggest reason timeshare transfers take more time is caused directly from your resort, who is making it more and more difficult to get out of these rediculous contracts. 

Over half of the owners of timeshares are trying to get out of them. timeshares can be rented in many cases for less than a Motel 6, and the resorts realize more and more people are not buying these worthless contracts. They have to keep people locked in, and are blocking and stalling these transfers and making legitimate companies like ours look like the bad guys. 

Look up House Bill 7025 in Florida, which was passsed in the House and Senate last year, making it very difficult for owners to get out of these things. 

The people who call you every day asking for $500 dollars to sell them are the biggest problem. They are all a scam, because their are no buyers for them on the resale market. Look up timeshares for a $1.00 n EBay and every day you find them for 1 buck and no bids. Why are the resorts not telling you this, when they lie about the investment opportunity that you can pass on to the kids. 

Please find out who the real culprits are before you start accusing hardworking legitmate people and companies who are trying to do the right thing.

That transfer you paid us for willl be completed, no matter how long it takes. Contact me direct . You have my number. I am happy to prove to you we will get this done and who is reaslly at fault. I have returned every single phone call from my clients and I am sure you have not contacted me, otherwise this would have already been resolved.

Most timeshares that were sent to Pacific Transfers have been moved to an attorney referral service, which is now being used for contract terminations, and have a 100%success rate. Their is not 1 client in 10 years that did not get out of their timeshare , as long as they were in compliance.

Timeshare Scam

AUTHOR: Evelyn - ()

We were told that we didn't have to pay next year's maintenance fees which is untrue. We just got the bill for over $2,ooo.oo. and have to pay it by 1-1-14.

Also, we never, ever, were ableto have a call-back from thyem after at least 10 tries and 2 registered letters. We are absolutely at a dead end. Pacific Transfer also doesn't have a BBB rating whioch is suspicious.

Timeshare Resale Scams

AUTHOR: Richard79 - ()

The resale of a timeshare is a legitimate business. Companies agree to advertise a timeshare for a fee on their websites. As with advertising, the membership doesn´t need to sell in order the fees to be legitimate. The difference between an honest timeshare resale company and a scam, is when the company falsely suggest they have a buyer waiting for their timeshare, or picture unrealistic, overoptimistic selling possibilities
