In October 2013, on a visit to Los Cabos, we were enticed into a timeshare presentation with the promise of free rounds of golf at famous golf courses in the area. We were taken by van to "Los Cabos Golf Resort", over an unfinished dirt road that led to a gate-guarded property in sight of the local Walmart. We were offered breakfast, toured the vacation resort property, and then we were led into a large room where other guests were sitting at various tables listening to timeshare sales talks.
We were asked if we ever owned any timeshares; we said we own Mayan. They offered to buy our Mayan timeshare at a premium in exchange for buying a timeshare at Los Cabos Golf Resort. Since we hardly used our Mayan timeshare this was very attractive. Supposedly, the deal would result in a net $16,000+ to us. By that time we had been there nearly 3 hours and had spent over an hour listening to their talk about the merits of this deal. At times, we were "two-teamed" by salesmen. Almost exhausted by this time and wanting to get out of there, we agreed to the deal, then signed many papers, supposed "closing documents" for the transaction. We used our American Express card to pay $15,000 (plus transaction fees) for the Los Cabos Golf Resort property; we were led to believe that within 180 days, we would be given the $16,000 in exchange for our Mayan property, per the "Escrow" document among the closing papers. As other victims have reported, this is a false promise based on worthless documentation.
Beware! We were told by the sales team and we signed several documents waiving our rights of recission and verifying that we had received all goods and services as promised. We later learned that Mexican Consumer laws allow 5 days for recission, that this right of recission cannot be waived, that this information was intentionally misrepresented and concealed from us. Internet research revealed that many others have been scammed by these crooks.
We have hired a Mexican attorney to file an action in Mexico and we have filed a dispute with American Express. However, we believe we have only a small hope of recovery of our money, given the clever way the sales documents are drafted by these crooks. NOTE: This property was previously known by other names including Signature Residence Club. The merchant named on the American Express payment slip is "Luxxury Leisure Colletion (Jogolo S.A. de C.V.)." Other name on the documents: "Premier Property Management."
