Coastal Premier Timeshare Solutions Premier Timeshare Solutions Timeshare - For Sale by Owner SCAM, they advertise for free, take deposit saying they a buyer with full promise of 100% refund if closing is not done within 60days Palm Beach Gardens, Florida
Do NOT give any money to anyone from Coastal Premiere Vacation Solutions. These people are heartless and I really hope they get what they deserve. How can they do this to people these days, knowing very well everyone is going through financial troubles!!!!! I had a call in October saying that they had seen our name in some list saying that we had put our Timeshare in Florida for sale years ago and they wanted to know if we were still interested in selling. I told him that somebody had taken $500.00 from dad to list the timeshare and nothing ever happened. So I was very weary of doing anything with trying to sell it again. I believe the guy's name was Andrew Reefe , and he said that the listing of the timeshare was for free. After debating about it, I said fine, but I didn't think I would ever hear from him again. The very next day, I got a phone call from a Keith 561-228-1042, he said that he had a buyer for $18,750.00. I was ecstatic because I really need that money. So after explaining some stuff and he asked for a deposit. I didn't want to give it to him, and told him that I was afraid this was a scam, that I didn't even have the money since I just stopped working because I just gave birth to twins. I told him that I would have to think about it and research first to see if they were for real. He said to go ahead, and that he knew I wouldn't find anything bad on them and that I would call back. I tried to search on the internet and even called 411 to check on some numbers. I didn't find them on the Better Business Bureau, and other things were a bit obscure, but stupid me, was so desperate for the money, that I called Keith back. I explained my situation to him and said I hope you're not scamming me, I have no money and I have to take care of my twins. He promised that this was for real. He said that they got their money from the buyer because they were a financing company and they try to get people that want buy timeshares like I had done. And that not only would I get paid $18,750.00, he could also get me money for my banked week with RCI (he used the buyer's name and said that that person had also been approved to buy up to 3 banked weeks with RCI), I think he said $1,750.00, and I would get my deposit money back. At first, he had asked for $1,147.00 deposit and then the total went to $1867.54 because I was also selling my banked week with RCI. He explained that he couldn't do anything without the deposit, because he needed to get do a Search for Title and Deed which would take 20-30 days, and needed to get paid for his work in case I backed out of the deal. He would send a contract for me to sign, then withing 45-60 days I would get a call and Fed-Ex would ask me for my Finance Approval code (which he gave me), and I would also need to get a Notary to sign the final paperwork. In the end I would receive 3 separate checks, one for timeshare sale, one for banked week and one for deposit refund. Basically, all the questions I asked were answered pretty well, and although hesitant I believed him, I thought that because I had explained my personal situation to him, that he wouldn't be a heartless you-know-what. I called my lawyer and they couldn't help me, they did tell me not to give them any money, but with all of Keith's explanations, I tought I could trust him, I can't believe I didn't listen to the lawyer! The signs were all there that something was off, things were a bit weird, like he sent the contract after a few days but it was very brief and it didn't have the right name of my Timeshare and not the exact amount of the Mnt. fees. When I called him about it, he gave some excuse, how these companies, use different names for their offices or something like that. Everytime I called, he never answered, the call would just go nowhere, or there would be some weird machine message. He would usually call me after I tried calling a few times, and would say he saw my number. The last time I spoke with him about the status of the sale, I believe was on 11/11/09, he told me that I should get a phone call asking for the Finance Code within 2-3 weeks. I have been trying to call there since this past Friday12/4/09, and the phone message always says you've reached our corporate office, we are currently assisting other clients at this time, and they also give their business hours. I've tried calling at all different times and even blocked my number, I can't get trough that message. I also have another number for a Chris 561-282-6465, I think he's the one that set up the finance code and did the final credit card deposit which he said, our conversation was being recorded. The total of $1,867,54 was charged to my credit card on 10/15/09. I NEED MY MONEY BACK ASAP, OR I'M IN DEEP TROUBLE. Now I have to tell my husband and he's going to be extremely upset, because he told me to be careful and make sure it wasn't a scam. I tried to check Online and at the time I hadn't found anything on this company. It was just today that I found other complaints on Ripoff.com. I hope someone can help me get my money back quickly, this is my babies 1st Christmas, and I can't believe somebody has the heart to do this to me and other people!!!!!!!
