Two weeks ago I was contacted by Summit Resort Marketing & Financing (now known as Summit Resort Marketing Group, Inc). I was told that they had a buyer for my two timeshare properties and they would close the deal, but they needed my checking account information so the escrow company could deposit the $57,800 selling price. I would not have to pay anything up front, but the would be charging my account $9,000+ when the buyers completed their end of the deal. I became suspicious when I couldn't find any information on the company through the Orlando BBB and it was only on a subsequent call that I was given the www.hellotimeshares.com web site. Looking at the web site ought make anyone more suspicious. I quickly closed my checking account and my bank told me that they had tried to deduct the $9,000+. Today I get a follow-up call from Summit. This time I get a different name for the company. When I told the individual that I wanted to know the name of the escrow company and a contact person, I was told that it really wasn't a traditional escrow company, but it was an internal "slush fund". When I confronted this individual about lack of information about who they were, I'm told that I can go to www.sunbiz.org and find them listed there. So when I look them up I find that it is an advertising corporation established on January 15, 2009. Then I did a google search on "Summit Resort Marketing address", I found someone elses Rip-Off Report on them (Report: #413386 ) with a different address which was the same as the original address I had for Summit. They act like they are insulted because you don't trust them, but they keep comming at you with an explanation for everything. I really did want to sell my timeshare, but thanks to Larry's report, I know not to trust anything that they say and they won't be getting any of my money.
