Smart Travel proposed to purchase a timeshare from me.  They were working with a "law firm" named Pacheco Attorney at  Law, which is likely a shadow, I discovered today they are using a legitimate name and California bar number of a real California attorney, but are obviously not true attorneys.  All of the paperwork is very official-looking, with notarized, state seals and such.  The man passing himself off as the attorney is very articulate and informative on the phone calls. They arranged a wire transfer for me to get the title release fee (to pay for the title from Mexico -- supposedly its director of foreign affairs and state departments.)   In retrospect, every step of this is false, with scams at every level.   Once the wire transfer fee went out from my bank account, there are no responses from anyone, no one answering phones, no email confirmations.    Now, there in no response from Smart Travel, and all of its contact information is now leading to dead ends.   This is a very complex, multi-level scam, and uses extremely legitimate looking documents.
