I got a call from Richard, he told me he was a broker for Death Valley Real Estate LLC. He said he had a buyer for my timeshare and the price was 80% of the market value of $127,000. He explained that the money would be held in an Irrevocable Trust Account at the Cross-Border Division in Mexico. I received a bank statement showing the balance of $118,000. Next, they tell me that I have to pay an RFCE registration fee (cost of $7,122) and the buyer will reimburse me. I receive a new bank statement balance of $125,122. I was then told that I had to pay the Baja California sales tax ($13,800) and that the buyer will reimburse me, then I received the bank statement that showed $148,922 in the account. I called the bank at the phone number listed on the statement to check the balance, they told me I had the correct balance. Again I receive a call from Richard  informing me that I had to pay $5,973.10 for registration and legal fees and for the buyer to reimburse me, he received the bank statement which showed $152,795 in the account. I then received a transfer confirmation showing that the money has been transferred. I never got the cable. Richard calls me with an urgent message, the Mexican Customs was holding the money and I had to pay $32,359.17 clearance fee.  Richard said that Customs was investing in "money laundering" and that I had to pay as soon as possible, the buyer Return My Money. As always, I received the bank statement which showed $185,154.27 in the account. The money was returned to the Bank. Again, Richard called, the bank wants an insurance bond of $23,971.33, $51,638.76 income tax and $38,615.41 bank processing fee. I called the BANK using a phone number I looked up on the bank's website. I was told that the account number didn't exist in his bank and that he didn't have an account. I also asked my bank to call the respective bank to get the same answer, NO ACCOUNT, I keep getting calls from Richard and his international manager saying I have to pay the money. THIS HAS TO BE A SCAM.

 Believe it or not, your timeshare is worth very little, if anything. Many (if not most) timeshares have a negative value. Nobody willingly buys a timeshare, which is why they are only sold in high pressure sales meetings. There is no resale market for them. You can go on eBay and find any number of timeshares listed for one dollar, with no takers. If you are lucky, the timeshare company might let you surrender the deed. Even that's not guaranteed. A timeshare is a liability, not an asset. Therefore, anyone cold calling and offering 5 or 6 figures for a timeshare is guaranteed to be a scammer. So yes, you got scammed by one of the oldest scams there is -- advance fee fraud aka Nigerian 419 scams. Next time, use some common sense.
