Show customers why they should trust your business over your competitors...

My wife and I were contacted several times by TIMESHARE INVESTORS OF AMERICA on the telephone.
We were told that they already had a buyer for our timeshare in Daytona Beach Florida and it would sell for$21,749.00 if we paid a refundable deposit of $2500.00. After long discussions about the credability of their company, they sent a fax describing their closing process and their in house escrow
company etc. we authorized a payment by check from our bank on January 31st 2011. The man we
spoke to was ED. COOPER and he assured me that he would be staying in touch with us every step of the way through the process of the sale. When I try to call they say he is not in and when I ask to
talk to a supervisor ,they will call me back. NO ONE calls me back and I FEEL THAT IT IS TIME FOR ME
TO MAKE THIS COMPLAINT.

I read James from Minnesota's comments regarding TIA.  I am going through the same conversations with someone out of Houston.  They are asking for $2450 as a retainer for a timeshare in Orlando. The funds are to run title checks, estoppals, etc.
I have seen 3 different addresses on this company when googling.  You are the only person that has actually gone through with them.  The other comments are just people giving advice about these types of transactions.   I saw your follow up and can not believe the threats and intimidation you and your wife were subjected to.  What was the end results of this?  Did you get your money back?  If not, have you considered filing with the Attorney General in Texas?  If this is a legitimate scam, they should not get by with taking your money, especially if you did not sign a contract.  Please let me know what the status of your situation is now.  Thanks so much.

TIMESHARE INVESTORS OF AMERICA---FRAUD SCAM

AUTHOR: JAMESE - (United States of America)

I WROTE A REPORT RECENTLY SAYING THAT I COULD NOT CONTACT ED COOPER AT TIMESHARE INVESTORS OF AMERICA, AFTER MANY TRIES. THAT SAME DAY I GOT A CALL FROM A MAN NAMED WILLIAM BLAIR, WHO IMMEDIATELY VERBALLY ATTACKED MY WIFE ( APPARENTLY FOR MAKING A NEGATIVE REPORT ABOUT THEIR COMPANY ) WE DID NOT SIGN A CONTRACT THAT THEY HAD SENT TO US, SO HE E-MAILED A NEW CONTRACT. THIS CONTRACT DID NOT APPLY TO OUR
SITUATION SO I REFUSED TO SIGN IT.   THEY HAD TOLD US THAT THEY ALREADY HAD A BUYER AND WE NEEDED TO PAY $2,500 TO PROCEED WITH THE PAPER WORK.  NOW IN WILLIAM BLAIR'S LAST CALL HE SAID I WOULD LOSE MY $2,500 IF I DIDN'T SIGN HIS CONTRACT, AND IF I DID SIGN IT I WOULD HAVE TO PAY AN ADDITIONAL $4,500 TO CONTINUE THE PROCESS. HE USED VERY LOUD AND ABUSIVE LANGUAGE IN HIS DEMANDS OF ME.

THERE IS NO WAY THAT A LEGITIMATE BUSINESS MAN WOULD CONDUCT HIMSELF IN THIS WAY, SO I MUST CONCLUDE THAT THIS COMPANY IS CONDUCTING A FRAUDULENT SCAM.
